Very good welcome from the owners. All facilities up to a good standard. Lovely views over the bay. In a peaceful spot but within 10 minute walking distance of the harbour, shops and restaurants. Within 2.5 hour drive of Auckland airport - our last stop before flying back to Wales.

The service is very friendly, the location is really close of the restaurants and just across the sea so you have a beautiful view on the sea and mountains from there. The only issue i had is that the toilet room was too small.
