    Fantastic location for what I needed, great local options on food/drinks and friendly helpful staff. The free brekkie was a supper bonus - I was only on a short trip so carrying minimal stuff. Not having to worry about this meal was real helpful. Thoroughly enjoyed my stay. Highly recommended. Will stay again if passing through Napier/Hastings.
