Very good 8.0
Suite 10 View 3
Everything about our stay was excellent, with one exception. We were greeted by Lisa, who was very kind and helpful. Check in was quick and easy. The suite was clean, spacious, comfortable and well appointed, and had windows on three sides, which allowed for lots of natural light. The only exception to the otherwise completely excellent stay was that we were expecting that the main view from our suite would look directly out onto the water - as was shown on the website. It didn't - it looked directly onto the back of the main hotel building. There was a view, at an angle, to a small water view - which was ... okay, but disappointing compared to what we were expecting.

Lovely lady runs the place and wants you to be comfortable. You share a building with another room. Nice kitchenette. Also, very clean and I LOVED the electric blanket on the mattress ❣️

Good value
A nice motel with a tidy and clean room. The unit had a kitchen but no stove/hot plate, a table with 2 chairs, a sofa and a bed which was a bit soft for my liking but more than adequate. The bathroom was spacious while the WiFi and TV was adequate.

The best night sleep in New Zealand!
Outstanding. Lisa is delightfully friendly host. The cottage was spotless, spacious and fantastic. Well set out and maintained gorgeous ocean view. Lots of little things like makeup remover pads,cotton buds, chockies by the bed, foil and cling wrap in the kitchen, plunger coffee and pot, cookies, wifi, off street parking, toilet spray in the toot, soap powder in the laundry. Private, quiet, the best accomodation in New Zealand by a mile. Loved our stay, sorry to leave. Lisa has a lovely welcoming manner and smile. She even drove over to the cottage to put fresh milk in the full sized fridge and turn on the aircon so we would be warm upon arrival, offered to help carry our bags too. What a gem! Cannot recommend this accomodation in the Bluff area highly enough. Thanks for the wonderful stay with all the homely touches and we WILL be back. Warmest regards from Deb & Gloria cheekyricho cooking YouTube channel In Australia.
