This hotel was quite cheap in light of the great quality. Staff were very helpful upon check-in. Room was spacious and clean, with great view from balcony. High quality. This hotel is very likely much more expensive in the summer, but I will not complain.

The stay was nearly perfect, the room was lovely, the complex is in an area that has a wonderful village feel to it. The one thing that made the stay not 100% perfect was the bathroom floor tiles were cold, but then it is winter.

Dear Aratag Thanks for taking the time to post your review. I am so sorry to hear that we didn't deliver the 100% perfect stay, particularly when we could have, as we have underfloor heating in all our bathrooms so it must have been turned down!! Particularly in winter it is always nice to have the warm tiles in the...

My husband and I stayed here on our wedding night. Great room with a beautiful view. Loved listening to the waves crashing in the morning and the spa bath was a relaxing way to spend a great night. Highly recommend.

Lovely place to stay, very clean and tidy, staff friendly and helpful. Only downside was when we booked, thought we had booked a room overlooking the ocean but ended up in a room around the corner, although didn't worry us, if you want a sea view, pay to ring and double check :-)

Dear angelag Yes approximately half the hotel have the direct seaviews and then majority of the remaining rooms have seaviews from the balcony. If you are wanting the direct seaviews next time book the studio premium suites. We look forward to hopefully welcoming you back to the hotel and Hawkes Bay. Kind Regards Michele Cole
