Our Tiaki Promise...

Our Tiaki Promise is to be mindful and make our guests aware of our impact on the land and its people. Tiaki means to care for people and place. So we ask our guests to follow our lead and do the same, as we believe all of us who are lucky enough to live in and travel around this 'land of the long white cloud', Aotearoa, have a responsibility to look after it for future generations too.

The room was cosy and the music from the neighboring restaurant stopped at a reasonable time. The complimentary heater was a nice touch for a cold night.
