When I arrived, my hosts were not there but as they said, there would be an envelope in the mail box with my name on it so I could get into my room.
I can't say enough good things about my initial impression. There was fresh baked bread, several NZ jams, butter, fresh fruit, homemade granola, milk, two bottles of juice, chocolates, even homemade cookies! All at no extra charge.
When I went to get my things in from the car, Tim had just arrived home and helped me get settled in and offered to do my washing for me! Later Emily stopped by to make sure everything was good and asked if I needed anything at all. Then she brought me my laundry all dried and folded! This was totally unexpected and their genuine friendliness and hospitality was so far above anywhere else I have stayed so far in NZ, or the rest of the world for that matter.
The room was spotlessly clean and the towels were soft and smelled nice and fresh. The bed was very comfy and had plenty of pillows and an enormous duvet. Felt like I was sleeping on a cloud formatted just for me!
Even the toilet paper wasn't the cheap stuff a lot of hotels have.
Bottom line is everything was PLUSH! Quiet, comfortable, spacious, great reading material and TV channel selection.
My only negative is that I only had ONE NIGHT to stay there! Wish I could be spending my whole three weeks in New Zealand there, but alas, that's my bad fortune. If I EVER get to come to NZ again, I will be making this my first booking.
