I spent one night with my wife in a standard studio: quite roomy with a separate kitchen and bathroom. Although the place feels a little bit dated, it is clean with a comfortable bed and has everything we needed. It is close to restaurants and shops and within 10mns of the city center by car. Overall, it was perfectly in-line with our expectations.
Recommended.

This is our second visit here. Staff very welcoming. They give good recommendations of where to go to visit. Very clean. In walking distance to a few local restaurants and beach. A short drive into Nelson. Also a 20 minute drive to Rabbit Island which is a beautiful unspoilt area of woodland walks and golden sand beaches. Need o take a picnic as no cafes there.

Room Tip: All rooms are the same. Free parking. Washing line outside in small back garden area

I love the Driftwood, writing this review as we're packing to leave. ( so sad to to go) Such a great place and Lucy is the best host. So accomadating and friendly, the Chinese breakfast was delicious too. ( great dumplings ) Can't beat the location and the apartment was very clean and spacious, I would definitely recommend the Driftwood and plan on coming back.

Room Tip: Can't go wrong, great place

My wife and I made a last minute decision to stay in the area another night. We lucked out finding this place when we took the last room on offer. We we greeted very well and was taken back by how friendly the receptionist was. While older, the inside of our room was spotless. Everything we could have possibly needed was available. 7 mins walk to the beach, it was the best value for money accommodation we have had in probably 8 years!

Spent 2 nights here with the family. It was a nice peaceful place to be. Well equiped kitchen, comfortable beds, generous Wi-Fi and sky TV.
The staff were really polite and helpful even going so far as to bring in and fold a load of our washing and hang a fresh load out for us! This was such a treat.
