This hotel is a great hotel if you have your own car. I cancelled my rental car, yet I had a wonderful time here.
This is a small hotel with only 75 rooms, so you can not expect a grand hotel like
facilities. However, that been said, I found this hotel is absolutely lovely. I stayed in building 5 and there was renovation few rooms down. But I did not find any problem at all. Most work were done in working hours. There is nothing better than waking up in bird singing and falling asleep in a quiet evening.
The room itself is updated room. I especially love the portable heater in the room, as well as the Jacuzzi bath in the bathroom. The switch is outside the bathroom but it did not stop me having a great time.
Receptionists here are all friendly and welcoming. I only used restaurant for breakfast but I did enjoy every meal I had there.
Overall the stay is exceptional as long as you know what you are getting. Have a car would certainly help you to enjoy your stay here. Yes there are very few TV channels here but this is New Zealand for you. Did I mention the view and the hotel ground is wonderful? And for fellow plane spotter, this hotel is a nice place to watching planes taking off and landing depends on the wind too! [Less]
