          Lovely views of the lake and nice and peaceful. Very comfortable accommodation and reasonably roomy. Found the hosts to be very obliging and knowledgeable. Good parking facilities. Handy to the main shops too.

          Best holidays come unplanned. All you have to do is pack your stuff the night before and drive away. Everything went well even the weather. We were expecting a wet weather but we were fortunate it was bright and sunny at every place we visited....More

          Comfortable room with a great view. Not the fault of the hotel it was rainging torrentially, but much to their credit that they recommended us two activities that were perfect for a rainy day, esp the hot springs at Wairaki.

          Sails always makes my holidays memorable! Great friendly service, clean and comfy rooms. The location is perfect, right across from the beach and not far from town. The room sizes are perfect, and it is as advertised online.
