10/10 Exceptional

Prince Albert is a great place to stay after a long car drive or a long motorbike ride. I came up from Christchurch. About 430km about 5h30m driving. A solid day on road with lunch break mid-way to break the journey. Great to arrive and check in and have a good meal and drink in bar then walk upstairs to bed without worrying about parking or drinkng and driiving afterward.
