Rattled my cage!
Your website indicated my bill would be $102; yet I was charged $400. I found it an embarrassing position to be in. My laptop went missing; after requesting a police report be filed, the laptop was returned the next day , when I was out. The New Manageress, Vicky, was upset about It and send the police report as if from her Home. The Reception Staff Member on Saturday admitted she had been having a nap when O tried to collect my luggage. I think they have staffing issues. I would like a refund. Nicky Bayley

Not a fancy place but darn handy and it had everything we wanted. Think summer cabin rather than 4 star hotel.

Very clean and tidy, over the road from a lovely restaurant. Family rooms were away from the hussle and bustle and the marae was pretty cool! Very helpful and friendly reception staff.
Kotiro3, au1 night trip
Good 6.0
Convenient, but loud
The hostel was very convenient for me, but the night I stayed, there were a lot of people there and it was loud as a result because my room was next to the social area.

Convenient for 90 mile beach
This was good value for a night stay. The kitchen area was well stocked and large enough space for several users. Convenient for the Harrisons Cape Reinga tour.
