This lovely old hotel was recommended by some NZ friends and it really is excellent. The staff are very friendly and helpful - more than is required by the job, the bar and restaurant are delightful - the location is perfect to have a relaxing glass of wine just watching the world go by. The food is superb and the whole place is clean and comfortable. Our only problem was that our room was tiny! Almost certainly my fault when booking but, as we were away from home for 8 weeks and had a lot of luggage, it really was a bit of a problem! However as we only slept in the room and everything else was very nearly perfect we didn't let it worry us.
I can't recommend this highly enough
