We stayed here for the night before flying to north island to continue our tour of New Zealand. The room was very comfortable, with a great kitchenette and it was spotless with good wifi.

Everything was excellent apart from the fact the electric blanket didn't work on my side of the bed and nor did the light above it! The receptionist was very friendly and the preparation of the room very good.

Comfortable quiet sleep, clean as a whistle, and terrifically friendly efficient staff. Stayed four nights in mid August. Close (5 minute drive) to airport, and offer a shuttle service which I didn't use. Will be back and don't hesitate to recommend.
