Large room on the bottom floor with an open plan bed room, kitchen lounge. Large bathroom off to the side and a seating room area outside overlooking the sea. Outside chairs and towels were provided. Lovely coffee shop just around the corner with a restaurant across the road. What more could you ask for, really. Lovely to relax and take NZ all in, or a break away from the city for a bit.

This was by far one of the best places we have stayed at. Sunny room, great view of water, spotlessly clean, fantastic toiletries, wonderful coffee for plunger, comfortable beds and a huge room with a balcony. Wonderful friendly staff at checkin and great location to walk to cafes and restaurants and supermarket. Also was a very quiet location. Not to mention how quiet the entire neighbourhood was. This was the perfect place to end our 3 week vacation in NZ

Despite a hiccup at check in, it was handled very efficiently and sorted instantly and fortunately for us a room was available. Manager very friendly and helped with directions and suggesting things to do while visiting. Top floor spacious studio room had a great 180 degree view over the harbour and surrounding hillsides. Comfy bed and lounges.

Can't fault this property - It was an absolutely fantastic place to stay on our holiday! First time we had been to Akaroa, without a doubt will definately stay here again, it ticked all boxes. The rooms are brilliant - very modern and large/roomy, very high quality furnishings, toiletries, and coffee/tea/biscuit selection. (I know because I bought some of the beautiful handwash in the room from the airport on the way home - it is definately not cheap and nasty) Everything was spotless. The hosts/staff were super friendly, nothing was too much trouble, and the location was perfect being right on the lake and close to dining/shopping/areas of interest. We were pleasantly surprised - A must to stay at if you're in this area.
