MATTHEW, nz3 night romance trip
Fair 4.0
Not easy access to disabled suite. Bed linen clean but pillows very uncomfortable. No hob,only microwave. Full kitchen advertised.No waste bin in bathroom. Laundry facilities very dirty. Really old grubby dryer. Certainly overrated as a four star facility.

Castles Motel
We stayed in the accommodation at the back of the site. It was quiet and comfortable as it is away from the main road. The unit was clean and tidy and had everything we needed. Smugglers is a 2 minute walk away and does great food.
