Nice boutique hotel but well overpriced!

Posted Jan 21, 2015
Pros: Nice decor in rooms
Cons: Beakfast should definitely be included for the price they charge
Location: Great location for the area
We had a nice stay in this place,rooms are well equipped and location is ideal, but wouldn't stay there again because of its exorbitant price.

Minutes from the water

Posted Oct 5, 2014
Pros: Location and the quality of the room and appointments.
Very nice little hotel conveniently located off the beaten path. The old building had been extensively renovated and thoughtfully appointed for travelers. The host was very helpful and available. The Indian restaurant next door was first rate, and a number of interesting shops and bars were minutes away. Location was spectacular overlooking a quiet harbor.

Great view

Posted Oct 3, 2014 on Hotels.com
We had a two night stay in two-bedroom suite at the front whilst touring NZ. It being such an old property means it has its quirks (like the narrow staircase). There's a great view from the chairs on the balcony. Staff were helpful with suggestions of places of interest to visit. Limited dining options within walking distance - especially on a Monday when most restaurants are closed.

nice hotel, but far from perfect location

Posted Oct 28, 2013 on Hotels.com
The hostess was very nice and welcoming. She upgraded our stay from a simple room to a suit with a private garden patio without charging more for that. The hotel is furnished and decorated with taste, very clean, with fresh cut flowers everywhere. The indian restaurant near the hotel served delicious food for a decent price and we had our romantic dinner in our private garden. The location is not a destination itself, but it was on our way and we had a nice drive through the green hills and pastures.
