The showers really are very small, with not much space to put towels and clothes. Great location, helpful staff.

Thanks for the time to leave us a review, We are constantly trying to improve so its great to get feedback.Enjoy the rest of your trip and enjoy Nz.


Really loved this place. Very homely, warm and nice freindly people, both staff and other travellers. Facilities good, with nice garden to sit in and comfy long area. Kitchen is fine too. Only negative is no secure storage for luggage if you're moving on or arriving early.
