A great pub with beautiful views of Lyttleton Habour and Quail Island. It was lovely dining on the deck with delicious food and friendly staff. The evening meal was also good with a cheerful Friday night crowd.

The manager on the 25th of February did a great job at attending people, was very helpful with resolving an issue I had with luggage and gave me great advice during and existential crisis. Food, drink and room were excellent too. All good all round.

6/10 Good

For the price I paid I thought the room could have been a lot better. I didn't like there was mo private bathroom in the room. Having a communial shower in the hallway to me isn't very hygienic as u don't no what hidden bugs people have got. Aside from that the atmosphere was nice and I enjoyed the pool.
