6/10 Good

No shower curtain above the bath tub. Water splashes everywhere in the bathroom. Dining service was good but the food was disappointing and very expensive. My husband had the lamb rump costing $49 but the meat was very tough.

2/10 Poor

It was tired and old. There was no vanity in the bathroom- just a stand alone sink. The hot water had great flow and was hot. The restaurant was cold, dated and had absolutely no ambience. The food was good but very overpriced. The best thing was the fabulous view of the Hokianga Harbour from our room.

Closeness to beach and wharf - saw two broadbill weighed in. Loved the beach and large pohutukawa just steps from our patio with seat beneath. Swimming pool area gorgeous with frangipani and hibiscus - did not swim. Disappòinted with the quality of some fittings. Front door lock pretty rough and door closing poor fitting. The cabinet housing the refrigerator was pretty badly put together the small fridge was rusting out at bottom of door and the ranchslider to the patio needed new rollers - grated badly on opening or closing. Property contacted us prior to stay enquiring if there was special occasion. I responded that we were celebrating 45th wedding anniversary - no acknowledgement of this - could have just put a couple of flowers in room from the grounds. I advised reception of my disappointment - she apologised and advised they normally did something like a card or similar. Overall though we loved this property although it was quite expensive for this time of year and the isolated area.

Beautiful tropical feel. Very good food. Kind staff. I think the TV needs upgrading (pixelated and only pay for view movies). I would rather have something to cast my Netflix too.

We waited for over an hour from ordering our dinner until we hurried them up. Others had come after us and receied their order before us

We really liked the view and the close proximity to the beach. The restaurant was top notch the only thing is the menu was limited but what they did they did very well. The only complaint with the room was the tv, there was hardly any options.
