    Extremely well set out room overlooking the beach All nicely furnished apart fom a rotten rusty table on balcony. For some reason the restaurant is closed indefinately. Adequate free car park too All staff at reception were good especially Mauro. He was very informative about the area & beyond. One tip was to go to Shag Point on our way to Christchurch for a chance to see sea lions. Thank you so much for this tip as they were all there in abundance. There is nowhere to get a drink here too as we had our alcohol removed from our fridge as the licence expired whilst we were there. All in all a very nice stay that was peaceful

    The bed was very soft and had a hollow on left side, which was too uncomfortable. The service of the room was ok but a dish was put back on the shelf not clean. The room itself was excellent (layout and space) with excellent amenities and view. Overall we would stay again.
