We had one of the standard rooms on the beach side of the street. It was a very plain, basic motel style. Nothing more. The beds were old and tired, as was the decor. The window screens of our room were thick with dead sandflies, as were the window sills themselves. The few buzzing around in the room itself were quickly vanquished by yours truly. We had dinner in the restaurant in the hotel. It was just OK. The server was not pleasant, but a bit arrogant. It was a lovely setting, though, with full glass windows floor to ceiling for a view of the ocean . The sunset we witnessed while we were eating was quite beautiful. I would only recommend this hotel because of its location. It is close to Punakaiki Rocks and was a good place logistically to stop over on our drive south along the coast after a full day's drive from Kaikoura. Breakfast was not included in the price of the room, unfortunately.
