Extremely nice staff and cosy atmosphere especially in winter it feels nice and warm in the living room.
I slept like a baby the bed are comfy and we were only 5 people so it was really nice and quite.

We stayed when it was a stormy night and a power blackout in the whole region. We were the only guests and the host was very nice looking after us and bringing us torches. Unfortunately we could not enjoy the area outside which seemed to...More
Our stay was not planned. Due to a loss in the family. Although we arrived late, we received fabulous service. Our room was tidy and clean. As were the other amenities. When we discovered we would need a second night, our host was more than...More
It is true that the place is nice, homely, surrounded by green hills, quiet and relaxing. And the owners are very nice and extremely helpful. On the other hand....beds...or at least mine, are old and mattress too soft with a huge hole in the middle....More
Thank you so much, Sue!! I drove into town without a booming and was happy to learn there was a bed open. The atmosphere was so relaxing and I made some new friends. It's very homey and the place is clean and comfortable. It's perfect!...More

This is a back packers with shared bathrooms. There is a bathroom by it self with 2 toilets and shower. You have the main house and with accommodation and facilities. There is a separate building with 2 rooms next to each other these are not large so don't expect a hotel room. Room 6 has a double bed, I don't know what type of bed these are, the other room has 2 singles. If you want your own bathroom you would be better staying down the road at the Copthorne Hokianga but there does not seem any available rooms on the 27th so might have to change the dates. Please also note there are no cooking facilities here so you have to buy all your food from the premises there are not too many other places to eat around this area. It is however a beautiful area and highly recommend it. If you decide to stay at the backpackers you still can go to the copthorne for a drink or dinner and highly recommend the sunset. You pay for what you get but I like the backpackers because you meet other people.
