Stables was great value 'dorm style' accomodation. As it was not peak season it seems the owner/operator was considerate in that he did not just fill up the dorms, but kept occupancy no's small in each room, meaning I shared with just one travelling French tourist, which was intertesting. Location is good, just a small stroll down into the town centre.
Unfortunate realy, as the best and only place to enjoy 'sunsets' is on the back deck, yet this is also where smoking is permited. I had only just sat down with a drink and my camera to see the sun going down, when another guest suddenly appeared on the deck and lit up a cigarette, meaning I had to immediately retreat to my room to enjoy the last rays and take my pictures (see image here) through the now tightly closed window. Roll on 2025 Smoke Free NZ!
Close to the beach and town
I like how the fridge where label with the room number on the fridge door, plus label bins with the room number 2. This around the tv works.
No grass in front of the front punch. Can't close the bedroom door from the outside, that's front punch. Don't like people can't stand people with very hard too understand. I didn't like a thin blanket on the bed in middle of winter.
I liked how it was close to the beach and also the lovely Ocean spa nearby. I also liked the room I had. Plus the lounge and kitchen facilities were nice.
That it didn't have a bike stand or shed for me to keep my bike and finding somewhere to lock it wasn't very easy.
Very quite peaceful chilled vibe good staff enjoyed it
