Stayed 2 nights. The location is 30 minutes from hot water beach and 5 from town. I did not feel very welcomed when we arrived. I had caught a 24hr bug three days after arriving in NZ (from the plane?)and was not feeling great and Diana was upset that I brought in germs. She is having surgery soon, so I do understand her worries. But, I had no choice. Breakfast is standard B&B. Cereal/fruit/yogurt/toast/juice. Gordon will also fix you eggs of your choice. We had the room upstairs facing the street. The furniture is old and so is the bed. The room was very clean.
They recommended a great boat for sightseeing around the bay.
We enjoyed relaxing outside on the grass, watching the water. The view was great.
Diana makes homemade chocolates that are left in your room which are delicious. That was a nice touch.
