Ok, so lets get the bad out of the way. The room was small, the bathroom very small and I didn't get the room I booked via Wotif. Water pressure and temperature was all over the place.
That said, the staff were very friendly. An offer was made to move me to another room with the king size bed I booked but when I was told it was just 2 singles pushed together I decided not to worry. The room was very clean, as was the bathroom. While it was a small bathroom, at least it was large enough dry off in and the shower head was high enough for my 6'2" frame to get completely under.
Good budget accommodation. With the Manuka shops just a short down the road, you could do a lot worse!
