Fantastic view
Lovely room, fantastic view over a lovely beach. However we were disappointed to find that the restaurant owners were away for a month without notice. (We had deliberately booked our first night in NZ at a hotel of good repute with an in-house restaurant, to ensure a good meal after 2 days travel from the UK. We were not pleased to end up in McDonalds!)

10/10 Exceptional

We stayed there simply for the view and as a stopover on our road trip. Breathtaking view of the ocean. We spent a fair bit of time sitting and watching the waves. The room itself was clean and comfortable. The check-in and check-out processes were easy. There was sufficient parking space, and it was easily accessible. The front-desk staff were really helpful and friendly.
