This was a cozy, motel style venue. It had one of the nicest bathrooms that we had on our full stay in New Zealand. It is in a small remote area of the country so a couple things for US-based travelers to be mindful of: the front desk people may be on a break occasionally, but generally will come back within 15 minutes. There won’t be somebody at the front desk in the late evenings, but I believe there’s a phone number you can call to still be in touch with them. There also is a door on the side of the hotel that remains unlocked throughout the night for people to come and go into the hotel, while the front door is locked. We felt perfectly safe at this location and it is super convenient to all of the restaurants and shops in the area as well as the local landscape sites. We would stay here again.
