A great location

Posted 18-Apr-2017
Within walking distance of the pancake rocks. Spacious rooms, set in a bush, close to the beach. Some rooms close to the road may have some road noise though the road is relatively quiet at night.

On the beach

Posted 13-Apr-2017
Beautiful location right on the beach ... fell asleep to the sound of waves. Room had every thing we needed and the restaurant served excellent food.

Really nice eco-suite

Posted 01-Apr-2017
It's pretty much the only game in town, but the eco-suites across the main road are very nice. I had a spacious room with nice chairs and a desk and a very comfortable bed. The bathroom had a roll-in shower, so plenty of room. The sink was very close to the toilet, so someone with long legs might have issues, or someone who didn't maneuver well. The kitchenette had a small refrigerator and microwave plus utensils. I was glad I brought my own food to prepare. It was a very comfortable place for a night and I could easily hear the surf from the little lanai outside my room. The sunset is also right there, but the darn biting sandflies kept me inside. I was on the ground floor and still had to navigate several stairs, which were winding. If I came back, I'd ask for a second level. The same amount of stairs but straight up and there's nobody walking above you. Drive up or walk to the park to see the pancake rocks and blowholes. The blowhole performs better at high tide and with strong surf. There are some pancake rocks at the beach just in front of the hotel as well.

ECO Suite was a very nice room well built into the hillside. Weka bird visits to the porch added some nice flavor. On property washer and dryer worked well.

Lovely setting

Posted 10-Feb-2017
Pros: Lovely design of rooms and beautiful landscaping in gorgeous beach setting.
Cons: Some screens had small gaps that can let in sandflies. Breakfast buffet and coffee need improving and repricing.
Location: Lots of good walks and other activities nearby, and stunning scenery everywhere.
Good view from upper rooms (reception staff kindly shifted us from a garden view to sea view). Accommodation across road gets some traffic noise, but the road isn't busy overnight. Excellent dinners at the restaurant. However, breakfast is very overpriced, the hot buffet is disappointing, and the coffee is terrible (get a machine that uses fresh beans!). Staff were all helpful and friendly.

Beachfront but disappointing

Posted 31-Jan-2017
Cons: Everything
Location: Very close to the pancake cliffs
Front desk staff was very friendly and willing to address concerns within her authority. She had no record of the standard special requests I make with every reservation on TripAdvisor. Once in the room, the window screen was torn and no replacement was allegedly available. The room was in dire need of renovations and upgrading. Cleanliness was barely passable. Be forewarned there is great sun coming into the room in the afternoon/evening but no air conditioning so rooms get extremely warm. Towels are stained and paper thin.
