Everything about this place is above average. My room was modern, comfortable, roomy, well equipped, and exceptionally clean. Hot water was hot and plentiful and the WiFi was fast and free. Like most places there are steps to climb but even at my age of 66, that was no problem ever. The staff are really friendly and cannot do enough to assist. I found that when I was cooking, it was important to open the window next to the stove to prevent the fire alarm going off. My apartment had two bedrooms and so there was no room for a lounge but I found it very comfortable to sit up in bed anyway. I would not even think of looking at anything else in the area as this is very reasonably prices and well worth the money. It it a short two streets to walk to town - easy. I stayed 8 nights. You can sit on the front deck of your room and enjoy the view. This is a lovely area to visit and from here I did a number of day trips up the northern end of the North Island that were very pleasant. Every day there was something different to do and the room I stayed made it that much easier. The hardest problem I had was getting out of bed some mornings. I am sure there are fancier places with bigger price tags to match but I was more than comfortable and content here. They even have a free library.
