  • We were very late arriving and were welcomed as if family. The beds were warming, room already warm and spotlessly clean - as was everywhere. It was really lovely. Ww will be back (and get there a lot earlier too!) Many thanks!

  • We loved this place. Sadly we just stayed there only one night before we left NZ. Everything is very clean and the host are so nice and helpful.
