3 (older age group) friends en route to Golden Bay, just looking for a quiet and clean place to sleep. We found that at the White Elephant. Unfortunately, the kitchen was a shambles with overflowing and overworked fridges. However, it was right on Christmas and a full house. We were happy to go out for fish and chips! There is a barbeque area provided and the young people were making use of that. They were very friendly and respectful and didn't make any undue noise.. I would be happy to go there again, especially if the kitchen was to get an upgrade.
