This was hilarious. When I walked up to the room, I sort of thought oh no...I thought this is a hotel. Once I stepped in however, this was a very nice and clean hotel-style interior, even better than most hotels you come across on the Road. Think of this one as if IKEA was asked to build a Motel and you come close imagining what it would look like.
But the real hammer is the restaurant.....folks this chef whips up 5 star meals. The French onion soup and the fillet were to die for. Reception was very friendly and accommodating. In short, I would definitely come back here again.
I find prices in NZ to be generally on the high side so the rates here fall into what I expected, but I wouldn't call this a high value to price spot.
If you take a stroll around the complex you come up on a cemetery with ocean (Tasman sea) view). Absolutely serene....not after dark though...;)More
