This was our first stop over on a tour around the North Island with three of our grandchildren following our daughter's wedding in Dunedin on the South Island.
Arriving later than intended we were met by Bernie who had a plate of freshly baked muffins for us which the children accepted with great gusto. After showing us to our clean and well maintained accommodation (not forgetting Teddy on the bed!) and making us feel at home Bernie departed, shortly afterwards Pat knocked the door and introduced himself to us and by the time he had left we both agreed it was like staying at a family member's home.
It certainly set the bar at a high level for all the other places we stayed at on our tour around, in fact we liked our stay so much we booked in for our final night before flying back to the South Island.
All our other stop overs were nice in their own way but none came close to the excellent friendly atmosphere created by Bernie, Pat and not forgetting Max the dog. Love to you all!!
