We stayed 3 nights and had an extremely relaxing time sitting on our lovely deck overlooking the river. We paid NZ$80 for the room up from the standard. The staff from the time we arrived to the time we left were just wonderful. They were friendly, helpful, caring and even gave us a special gift when we left. We were lucky we only had one other room filled for 2 of the 3 nights, so it was very peaceful.
We went on a bike ride every day for 2km to the local market and 711, which was a great ride (no traffic on the road until you reach the market). But otherwise we just relaxed, loved sitting on the deck reading in the peace. Food in restaurant was delicious, loved the burma curry! In room wifi was excellent. Swimming pool was nice. We booked the room up from standard and it was huge, clean with a lovely big bed. Had a large kitchen with fridge and ice maker which was great for our home made cocktails!
Only issue was we were disappointed with the bathroom, very much in need of an update, especially the shower cubical (room 1). Water pressure and temperature always inconsistent and in last 24 hours there was no hot water. Also they had a TV but there were no channels, all turned off. Not really an issue as the peaceful surroundings did not need the noise of TV, although do like to catch up on world news.
We had a lovely 3 days and would definitely recommend this if you want to completely relax in peaceful surroundings with fabulous staff.
