7.9 Good
Pros: Location was excellent. Room was comfortable and very clean. Kiakoura was lovely and we thoroughly enjoyed our visit there.
Cons: The property is up for sale and our impression was that the owners are emotional disengaged from the business. Would benefit from a folder containing emergency information eg local pharmacy, GP, emergency services, earthquake procedures. There may have been one but we didn’t locate it, neither were we introduced to it. There were no toiletries available. We always take our own but if you went expecting them, as stated on the booking form . . . . If you’re upstairs it’s a struggle with luggage. We were charged a credit card fee twice but we didn’t pay using a credit card at all. We had no reply to an email query re this charge and no resolution over the phone so the issue was settled via Booking.com and the charge was refunded. The first fee was automatically included so check what you’re being charged before you complete your booking. Poor cooked breakfast. Vegetarian couple staying when we were there advised to remove bacon from pre prepared meal! Not offered any alternative eg boiled eggs when they declined to do so. The whole experience, although pleasant, we felt was overpriced, slightly regimented and isn’t one we’d wish to repeat.

7.1 Good
Pros: surroundings
Cons: a number of washers/driers out of order.
9.0 Excellent
Pros: The facility caters for many types of travellers. It is well organised, clean, safe and has good facilities. I have no problem recommending it to travellers. We stayed in a two bedroom apartment which was very comfortable.
Cons: Perhaps the second bedroom could have had slightly bigger beds rather than three smallish ones but they are ideal for children.
10.0 Excellent
Pros: I stayed in one of their "cabins" with a full kitchen and private bath. It was super-well appointed with everything a vacationing family would need. One item that I suggest they add is a private safe with digital lock (nicer hotels have them and it takes the worry of any intruder or crooked housekeeping staff taking your valuables). That wasn't a problem here, but you can't provide too much security.
Cons: Cabins on the Highway side of the compound had their rear windows within about two-meters from the highway. But there was very little traffic at night so not a real problem.

Pros: Great location Quality toiletries provided Sunny well tended courtyard
Cons: We didn’t think it was value for money . We have paid the same or less for better facilities and more room e.g plates, utensils , toaster . The room was very small, fortunately it was sunny and we could sit in courtyard. No secure ventilation for keeping a window open at night.
6.0 Good
Pros: The location on the waterfront was great. We booked a room without breakfast, but our hostess offered breakfast as a free upgrade upon arrival. This was unexpected and appreciated and we really enjoyed the selection available for breakfast.
Cons: Our reason for booking this hotel, was because we like staying in this type of historic building. However, on arrival we found we were in a more modern courtyard annex, which was disappointing for us. Although comfortable enough, these courtyard rooms are rather small, and the bed only a standard double (compared to the other five properties we stayed at on this trip, all of which were roomy and had queen or king beds). This was by far the most expensive property we stayed at, and given the above, was not great value for money!

9.2 Excellent
Pros: Very comfortable, bed feels like you’re floating. Great views. Hosts very nice and supplied some fantastic homemade shortbread. Super clean! Good continental breakfast and a communal table makes for good conversation with other guests.
Cons: It’s a 10 minute walk into town which can become tiresome if you do it a few times and it’s not particularly pleasant.
