We are working here and glad we are not paying for a room here.
Karin is German and has been running the B & B for too long. She has just accepted an offer on the property which is a good thing.
She is trying to run the place on her own using backpackers for cheap labour. We feel sorry for her as her partner is back home ill, so she's got a lot going on.
Everything about the place is dated. The beds, mattresses, pillows, bedding, towels. It's a beautiful property....but its unloved.
Breakfast consists of cereal, bread, juice (measured) and tea/coffee.
95% of the guests we have spoken to her feel that the price is way too much and that Karin can be rude.
Might be best to stay elsewhere.

They then set the dogs off and it was so cute watching them work and then when they found it they got their tennis ball :) The dog, not the handlers. Bag came through eventually went through all the necessary security checks of food and what not. Next was a taxi to the hostel. Arrived at Nomads hostel around 10:30 ish, checked in and went to room for some chill time. Really cool hostel. All run by young ...
... to sleep.
Fully packed and checked out I walked down to my parents Hotel waited in the lobby. Not much later they arrived and the welcoming was great.
Here we were after 4 months on the opposite side of the world and they even recognized me straight away despite my newly acquired beard.
Since the room wasn't ready yet, we left all our luggage behind reception and went to find some breakfast.
Just around the corner of the Skytower ...
... goodbye to all of my family and friends, but I'm ready to go now, and I'm ready for my new adventure with Jayden. I'm chilling in the Emperor Lounge at Auckland Airport now. A good $55 spent, where you get wifi, food, shower, beverages, TV and peace and quiet! So, for whoever is reading this, Au Revoir, keep in touch and have a very Merry Christmas! ...
