Akaroa is magic. We stayed in a waterfront room. Clean, spacious with all the trimmings. Friendly and informative staff. Would certainly stay there again.

Room Tip: We had a waterfront room. It was gorgeous to wake up to in the morning. Coffee on the grass at the...

Reviewed 7 April 2012 via mobile

We had a three room unit. It was very average/ok. Beds for six but comfortable seats only for four. One other seat not quite so comfy but better than nothing. Rooms compact. Bathroom adequate, though very low shower head that made washing hair difficult, and I'm 174cm so anyone taller would have a much harder time. No soundproofing - could hear the people upstairs as they were in the bathroom, which wasn't so pleasant. Their jovial social gathering at night was more manageable, but if you want a good night's sleep, earplugs are advised. Very small television, but they did have a DVD player and options for hire. Not a great deal of character, but if you want something adequate right at the waterfront then this is an ok choice. I may look at other places for my next trip, but wouldn't be upset if I only had this place as an option for future stays.

Stayed April 2012

We always stay here when we go to Akaroa, it is off the main road, nice and quiet, but so handy to all the local amenities. The views are wonderful, such a restful place to stay.
