A classic turn of the century genuine Kiwi hotel, Great people running it and the whole place doesn't pretend to be what it isn't.

  • Liked: Cleanliness, staff & service, amenities

Pretty good for $47, bedding is crisp & clean. The staff are warm & friendly. The location is great. I'd happily pay another $15+ if the cleaners got 3xcited about having a reallt good vacuum, ya know, just the hair & dust. But i keep coming back
