Such a cool design and decor throughout the building! We stayed in the double with a shared bathroom, it was small but was perfect as we were just staying the night post a wedding in Martinborough. Comfy bed and great shower! We were very grateful we were able to check in early and get ready as we had driven down from Auckland.
