    We arrived well after check in time due to error by travel agent. All local restaurants closed. They found us food & drink which they need not have done. View from bedroom window next morning was amazing. Breakfasts excellent. Free mini bar as well.

    Thanks so much for your review. We could not have our guests going hungry (its not the kiwi way) and were happy to provide a sandwich.

    Love it, very accommodating, friendly hosts both Quentin and Jane. Nothing like good rivalry with Kiwis against the Aussies and of course what comes up is the Rugby. Great place to stay, central, and such a lovely touch.
