The guest house was perfect for what I required. A great price and had all the essentials available. John was very welcoming and helpful. For a lady travelling alone the room was perfectly equipped with their own bathrooms, a hair dryer, clean towels, and wifi. Beautiful Victorian styled house that felt like a home away from home. The only disappointments would be the rude country nurses who kept fellow guests and I up late by socialising loudly in the common areas. It was unfortunate that fellow kiwi's were not as polite and respectful as some. There was an issue with a water cylinder also but the host was very apologetic with both issues the next morning. I stayed here for two nights and having travelled throughout NZ this was definitely a bargain for a comfortable stay and easy location. HIGHLY RECOMMENDED!
