Our hostess, Penny, picked us up at the train station right on time as scheduled; she gave us an informative 10-min narrated driving tour of the town on the way to the motel. She willingly and pleasantly helped us plan our day; for instance, she checked the weather and suggested (absolutely correctly) that we should do our outdoor activities today (beautiful) rather than the next day (chilly and rainy). The room was immaculate.
We hope that no one reading this encounters the following issue, but Penny handled our problem very compassionately and professionally. We were tourists from USA and received a phone call from home (death in family) requiring us to re-arrange our NZ travel plans and fly back to the USA immediately. Penny was extremely helpful as we worked to change our train, ferry, and plane reservations, as well as hotels and tours.
