A really nice place,though a bit out of town on hilly winding roads.Though surprisingly you get use to it,except getting in their gateway and you cant see down infront of your car.scary the 1st time.That aside its a very lovely place and Carole and Richard could not be nicer. The bedrooms are very good, our was the Queen room. Shower very hot and powerful, portable heaters for the chilly evenings and mornings in mid May.They have a vast collection of DVD's and books in the cosy TV room.Carole and Richard are very helpful and try to give you as much info to enjoy your stay. .I had to e-mail them when I got home as I could not remember the names of the many places we visited,on our 5 nights stay.They were very prompt at sending the answers. Their ''Garden walk '' is something else,they have a sense of humour when they say 20minutes ( be warned ) Many places to visit,The Museum and Kiwi House is good to actually see Kiwi's, they feed them at 2-00pm each day. Its quite dark inside and no flash photo's allowed. There is a lovely lady at the reception who can gave you a great talk about them.
