WE'd been roughing it camping around the South Island so decided to treat ourselves. Far better to give overpriced motels and miss and save your pennies for this; negotiated a good B&B pre-Christmas deal (hotel seemed v quiet) and lapped up the rugged sea views, sunset. Ordered a tapas platter to have with the bottle of CEntral Otago riesling, kicked back and relaxed. Five-minute walk to Punakaiki Rocks (though no pavement alongside busy road - eek!). Only regret is not pre-booking a horse ride while we were there. Great to see a Kiwi hotel making an effort with the environment, too.
