This place is as good as they all a=say but we spent 2 nights over new year here with another family. The place was lovely and clean and the management was terrific and more than helpful and friendly.
Our complaint is that there are no fly screens on the windows. At night our rooms filled with mosquitos I killed 30 before bed and then had to wipe the blood marks off the wall. When I mentioned it in the morning I was told they don't usually have this sort of problem but it was a bad night in the area. Even so it is highlighted on the map of NZ that it is in a bad area for mossies. Even if there were no mosquitoes, no screen still allow bugs to get in. As there is no need for air con in the area, but as the nights do get warm at this time of year (29oC) you do need to open the windows to get some air.
If screens on the windows don't worry you then this is a terrific stop on a trip around the south island.
