We had a waterfront unit, so had a great view over the bay. However, that was the best thing about our stay. The whole place was dated and tired. Windows were cracked or did not open properly. The washhand basin poured water onto the floor. We repeatedly had to ask for clean towels. We came down for breakfast at the appointed time to find the whole place closed. The restaurant menu was limited and unimaginative. The generator was switched off during the night which meant a blissful quiet, but the fridge was then off for eight hours too. We asked our host about a boat trip. She said she would ring around for us, but forgot... And I could go on. Great Barrier is a really lovely place for a holiday, but don't spend it at Bob and Tipi's!
