Positive Reviews

Convenient location

The hotel is situated in great location for exploring restaurants in Ahuriri, while still providing a quiet environment. The proximity to the beach is also unbeatable and guests enjoy not only the waterfront views from their suites but also the ability to cross the road and arrive on the beach.

Friendly and professional staff

The hotel staff are friendly and warm towards guests while providing excellent service. The staff is commended for their professionalism and helpful nature, and reported to be ready to make suggestions and provide information on local attractions.

Very comfortable accommodation

The hotel suites are spacious and really beautifully decorated, creating a lovely atmosphere. Guests thoroughly enjoy the comfortable beds and range of quality pillows, while the ocean views on display receive a lot of praise.

Negative Reviews

Small, inconvenient bar area

The bar area is somewhat small and utilitarian in that it really only has the bare minimum. The bar is also located outdoors, which could lead to a cold and uncomfortable experience for those looking to enjoy a drink on a winter's evening.

Wi-Fi issues

Wi-Fi connectivity issues crop up on a regular basis. Those who manage to connect find the connection to be slow and very weak at times. This can be especially frustrating for travellers who need to get some work done during their visit.

Air-con functionality

Guests are often perplexed at a number of reoccurring air-conditioning faults. The cooling systems tend to blast cold air during the night and often mysteriously turn off during hot days.
