Quirky and homely. Close to town

No hassles and perfect for an overnight stay. The kids loved the animal themed rooms. Another basin in the bathroom would have been handy as there was a bit of a queue to clean teeth in the morning but otherwise no problems.

Room was not clean upon arrival

When i checked in i discovered my bin filled to the brim of used female sanitary 'tissues' and on the bed as i laid down there were 2 spiders that looked like a species of wolf spider. Would not stay again

Handy stop in Greymouth on the way through to Ross

Pros: Friendly
Cons: The bathroom facility.
Location: Easy walk to town.,
We were only here for a one night stop. It was convenient, easy to find and clean. The lounge/dining was a good size. The kitchen was OK, lots of pans etc but only one kettle/jug was a bit inconvenient. The one thing I did not like was the bathroom facility on the ground floor. Odd that one person could be in the shower whilst at the same time another (complete stranger) could be using the toilet attached to the shower - was a tad embarrassing ??
