You are very kind, thank you for the positive feedback. I don't always get it right, but it is nice when you do and you are told.

I paid $164 for a unit that was very basic, little better than a backpacker unit. There was no TV, no air conditioning, despite the fact that we were informed that we had to close all the windows in the early evening because of the mosquito problem (and it was a hot day). Privacy was a problem as the walls were so thin that I could hear every conversation and movement from next door, and the curtains didn't fit the windows and, as my room overlooked the car park, I had to be careful about where I got changed at night. I had to take away my own rubbish and was threatened with an extra fee of $50 if I didn't clean up before I left. The two positives I could say were that they had great internet access and it was clean. If I had only paid $100-120 I would have been happy but as it was at $164 it was seriously overpriced.

It was over priced because you booked through an online travel agency.. They are a business you chose to book with them and pay extra booking fees. Try reading the descriptions about motels and you will learn what is on offer. We do not offer television in the rooms, and who needs it when you can listen to what the neighbor's are saying through the paper thin walls! It's reality tv at its best You Should have stayed home and you could have watched all the television you wanted, ..

The location was out of this world. The staff were amazing - genuine caring but not over the top Kiwi hospitality. Best service I've had anywhere. Nothing was a problem

The views are stunning!! The people are friendly. Walls are thin between walls - I heard snoring from rooms either side sadly.

Lovely friendly hostess, gave great tips and ideas for things to do in the area. Had an excellent ocean view from my ground floor room. Room was clean and well equipped. Great location, a little off the highway in a quiet private location facing the sea. A bonus is they have a little bar and restaurant with lovely home cooked meals.
