    The room was very small and the bed was very soft and had blood in the sheets. It had only two channels on the tv why the owner told me that's how it is arround here! Other motels had sky tv or more than 2 channels!! The idee of boutique I don't understand under my understanding this Meens different and it seem to be the same as other hotel/motels. The price they charged was over the top for what it was competing with the rest what was arround with ocean views !!

    for years i am booking all over the world hotels through booking,com- always a success. this time it was a disaster - nothing of what was described was true - the room was so tiny- we did not have a place for our luggage. it faced the parking lot ( in the describtion it said that it will face the peninsula ) it was so coldi in the room- the door was not sealed , it said that the room has a sitting area - in reality they had a porch out side the room facing the parking/ it was so cold - no one could sit out side. the rate was so high compating to other hotels we booked in new zelan and what they had to offer..i was so furiouse- i warmly recommend to take this hotel from your list.

    The location was a dream - right on the front by the sea. Every morning we woke up and crossed the road to the most spectacular view ever!

    We loved the potential of all facilities. However we understand that the restaurant was not up and running yet. So no breakfast (but we found somewhere else a couple of blocks down). We were expecting to stay in the main building of the hotel. As per the photos online. Instead we stayed in the motel like accommodation out the back. The design was excellent, however it did feel a little small. Still enjoyed it all very much tho!

    Fabulous

    We liked the hosts, both were very friendly, we loved the view out to sea and complimentary welcome snacks and drinks. Reasonably close to town and close tplocal pub the Pier.

    Room was "Work in progress", Sofas /chairs were too small to relax but bed was very comfortable.Overall we were pleased.

    Fabulous

    The owners were very friendly and helpful. Great location. Liked the "boutique" look of the building. It is still being done up but has huge potential.

    Still being done up. Would have been nice to have a warm fire and a place to eat.

    My partner and I had a fantastic experience, the room was impeccably clean, stylish and comfortable. We ate dinner in the hotels restaurant and it was delicious, I ordered the scallops which we're delicious. The waitress was very friendly and dinner was served promptly. The staff went above and beyond and made us feel extremely welcome and had a great gasp of things to see and do. Overall we had a great stay and would highly recommend to those who want a hotel that is clean and very stylish yet warm and friendly at the same time. Oh and watching the dolphins play from the hotel is something we won't forget.

    Superb

    Nice friendly owner.

    What we didn't like was the fact that the neighbours, who were actually very quiet, could be heard even walking around the room. Had there been a noisier neighbour, or perhaps a young child, the sound would have penetrated the walls very easily. Bathroom was also cold, as it is a large room with no heating.

    The hotel is very well situated, the rooms are decorated to perfection. Very friendly staff. The adjoining restaurant is excellent and well worth a visit. Do not forget the whale watching.

    The views from the hotel lounge windows.

    The room door didn't seem very secure.
