I stayed here on a Tuesday night en route to Auckland from the South Island. John was most accommodating given that my ferry had been delayed and I arrived closer to 11pm at night. He even organised a carpark for me at no extra cost.
Its a simple place but clean and tidy, and cosy. I got a good night's sleep in a quiet environment.
Breakfast was continental and again the kitchen and dining area was very clean and neatly set up. I m a clean freak thus was very much at home in this B&B.
John has some antiques around the place which goes well with the overall environment there.
Will gladly stay here again.
