                Convenient location for our purposes; beachfront site.

                Location & view

                Needed a google map & discription of exactly where it was as we arrived in the dark and had to guess (if I didn't have some local knowledge it would of been much harder).

              • Couple
                9.6

                Beautiful setting.... stunning views and great dining experience

              • Older travelers
                7.0

                The peace and quiet

                Felt the food was only average and room was a bit run down

              • Couple
                9.6

                Peaceful very quiet and relaxing.

                I have no complaints really, maybe plunger coffee.

              • Couple
                5.8

                Location next to the blowhole was great and the food at the restaurant was great (even if a little expensive).

                The room was a bit basic for the price paid. Also obviously hadn't been used for awhile as the room was very musty.

              • Older travelers
                10.0

                The views, the clean air, just relaxing and doing nothing

              • Older travelers
                5.8

                Being as there were not many people staying here, was very peaceful. Could only here the roaring sea

                Bit to issolated from civilisation. Limited dinning choice! Windows very dirty on the outside - outside area could use some attention as does the poor TV reception. Time they stepped up to digital TV reception.

              • Older travelers
                7.0

                Well positioned to visit the "Blow Holes". Room was clean and provided for a comfortable stay.

                No adverse comments other than price is high, probably owing to lack of any real competition in the area.

              • Older travelers
                4.6

                Our apartment was on the other side of the road, so no room service was provided. We could not dine in at the restaurant as we were told we should have book earlier, even though there were only a few guests at the resort. Other guests told us there was not much choice on the menu, and the chef would not make adjustment to cater to the guest. Given that there are not many eating places around we had to live on fruits and maggie noodles. Finally we were charged 2.75% when paying the account by credit card, this was not part of the deal.

                on beach edge, views to water

                walk to the rocks could be a little safer (only a wide road edge, no footpath)

              • Couple
                7.0

                The location/view was fantastic as was the food at the restaurant.

                The room felt a little dated and the heating was inadequate.

              • Older travelers
                5.8

                Bathroom was not as clean as other accommodation that I stayed in nz. Parking was very limited

              • Single
                8.8

                The room had a damp smell, and was a little dated.

              • Older travelers
                9.2

                Quietness and the sea environment

                My wine was late being served with my dinner
