The Kiwi's Nest is a discount inn that provided us with a good night's sleep in a fairly charming setting. It is a converted old home, like a B&B, with some hostel-style rooms in the back. We had a double room with ensuite. The hotel is affiliated with the BBH backpackers (hostel) association.
Reception was very friendly and provided us with some good dining suggestions. The location is good -- a short walk to the downtown center (the Octagon). They had a few spaces for us to park the car.
The rate we paid was NZ$60; if we had been BBH members, there would have been a discount ($3 per person, I believe).
Room included a refrigerator, microwave, hot water kettle, instant coffee, tea, etc.
Unlike many places of lodging that are affiliated with BBH or Hosteling International, this place was not loud. There was not much foot traffic inside, and it was a restful, quiet stay. We would happily return.
