We stayed here for four nights after crossing on the ferry. Our room was comfortable and clean and we made use of the BBQ outside. Kent couldn't have been more helpful, giving us loads of advice on good areas to visit, places to walk to and even some tips on places to catch on our journey to our next place. The information centre was fantastic and they booked fishing and boat trips for us, taking the hassle out of our trip. We were pleased with how close it was to the ferry terminal, just a short drive, as well as right in the middle of the shops and next to the waterfront, whilst still being a peaceful place to stay. We would stay here again on a another visit to NZ.
