Got off the ferry with a howler spraying rain everywhere, dark, deserted streets, but was able to reason out where the hotel could be.
Free off street off-street parking, the hostess slipped on heir gumboots and walked me down to the room and turned on the heater.
Wind howled all night but room noise was minimal and I slept well. Breakfast is on order, but i skipped out early.
Not many tele channels, but being NZ there isn't a whole lot to watch anyway.
Clean, updated rooms extending the life of an older motel. I would stay again.
