This hotel is in a good location, about 300m from the sea. There's a lovely boardwalk along the beachfront.
The staff at the hotel were fantastic, we could ask anything and not feel like we were annoying them! Without exception they were all very friendly.
Our room was nice and spacious. I think the marketing that states that all rooms have sea-views is a bit of an exaggeration. In our room, if we stood on the balcony, we could see just a little bit of sea over top of the trees out on one corner. I'm sure there are other rooms though, that have just spectacular views.
There are geothermal mineral pools at the hotel, as they are situated on top of a geothermal acquifer. The pools are great but once again the marketing lacks a bit, as there is a cost involved of using the spa pools, which is $25 per person. If you were taking a family there, and didn't realise this, it could be an unexpectant big cost.
On the whole, the staff make this hotel... The rooms are fine, but just be aware of those couple of little things and you'll love it.

After a short 3 hour flight (Maud was expecting it to be 6 hours) from Christchurch we landed in a new country, Australia and the capital of Victoria, Melbourne. After the usual formalities at passport control it was nice to be greeted by the happy smiling face of Lauren Wills, and without bump as baby Jemima was now 3 months old.
... a good spot for lunch and it was only a few kilometres away from the town centre. Driving up through national parks was pretty but definitely the most dense bush we have seen anywhere so far. At the lighthouse you could walk out to the edge and overlook the fierce crashing waves below, hindered by only the cliff face after probably miles of unimpeded progress! It was a nice spot as promised but we opted to eat in the van with the wind quite strong! From here it was back through ...
... at our campsite, we were greeted with yet more kangaroos - just lounging around and eating throughout the campsite. We parked up and managed to go for a walk before darkness fell. The walk took us between towering rocks, alongside a mountain stream.The scenery was like something out of the Lord of the Rings.
We then had a look around the small local shop, cooked up a chicken jalfrezi for dinner and settled down for the night.
... years ago. We actually drove down into the volcano and then along the rim. It was necessary to stop and let the emus wanders past. Another spectacular example of Australia's diverse geography. The Hopkins River Caravan Park that we are staying at is very flash. The park has a pool with water fountains and slides outdoors as well as a heated pool and spa inside. They also have a gym, tennis court, jumping pillow, mini-golf course and Games Room. Of course, Dean won our game of ...
Fabulous rugged coastline, pleased we visited. Sunny, windy, not too hot but Brian still managed to look like a lobster by the end of the day, when will he learn sun cream required even when not hot. (Debs - as bad as Santa Barbara!). Fabulous hotel, ...
