We had pre-booked this place on wotif.com a month prior. Points of interest:
Arrived - couldn't remember booking were going to charge us again!
Room was small and cramped
Bed to sit on was so hard - it would be better sleeping on the floor!
Alot of noise was coming from upstairs - walls exceptionally thin!
Dirty - had alot of black hair on side table by bed, basin was dirty, coffee stains on table and other places.
Decor was old dated and we weren't sure if the place had clean linen?
Charged $5 for an internet cable that didn't work
Had an outbreak of ants in the unit
Breakfast was dry bread in the fridge. (I thought had been left there by previous occupants - turned out it was breakfast!
All this was noted with 5 minutes of arriving.
We notified the owner asked for our money back (including the extra $5 charged for the invalid internet cable. ) He refused, said we were already committed - too bad we didn't like it, said the place was clean, didn't even wipe the tables or clean hair off the side and was abusive! We were horrified - Ended up leaving and getting a better place at a motorcamp that night - as no other places were available for the easter period.

We planned to stay there for 2 nights but end up staying an extra one. Hosts were always friendly and helpful, location is just walking distance from the beach, rooms were comfy and clean, and breakfast was just perfect to start the day! We were lucky to find this place and at such affordable price, since other hotels charge you more for having a bathroom. Next time will definetely stay here again!

This was the worst accommodation in our 26-day tour of New Zealand. Principal problems were its design and housekeeping standard. While our suite included a second bedroom, the living area was cramped for three of us. The large glass sliding entry door provided no privacy without the curtain closed and there was a frequent sound of rushing water in the waste water downpipe from the first floor that ran past our bedroom window. The overall internal finish of the rooms was just average. With no air conditioning or free flow of air without opening the sliding door, sleep was difficult during the warm summer's night. The amiable proprietor said he was trying to "break in" the cleaning staff. He had a way to go. They failed to note the crust of old milk that had leaked into a bowl in the refgrigerator and while there were no other significant signs of dirt, the beds did not look freshly made up. We were fortunate to get the booking during the peak summer holiday season but we were glad we only had to stay one night.
