It seems we were staying at a different venue to other reviewers as this was the worst place we stayed in our 23 day tour of New Zealand. We stayed two nights . Our room was small and on the ground floor near the front door and we had noise from the road especially early in the morning. Our host must have had an off day as he we felt he wasn't bothered if we were there or not. He didn't offer us any tea or a map of the area .We had to ask him lots of questions rather than him offering them. (Every one of our other hosts was welcoming and really made us feel at home).
It was the little things we noticed compared to other places we stayed. There were no tea bags to make tea and milk that had been spilt in the fridge on the first afternoon was still there the morning we left. The cereal was stale and teapot spout was brown stained. Crockery was left out all the time so felt dusty . Silver cutlery was tarnished and tainted the food. Wet room was spacious but shower temp really hard to control.
These things may sound petty but it stood out like a sore thumb compared to all the other places we stayed. On a positive note. Beds were reasonably comfortable. Cooked breakfast was ok. So for some people who are looking for more basic accommodation Kershaw would suffice, however if you're used to staying in Boutique lodges with that extra something then we suggest you look elsewhere.
