The camping is the worst I have ever spent a night at (2 out of 10). $20 for 1 person with a campervan is too much. The toilet was dirty and couln't be locked. The bar was full of character 10 out of 10. The owner very friendly and the best food I had in New Zealand (10 out of 10). No info on the hotel itself because I camped. But camping only if no other options are available

Arrived late on a Sunday proprietor told us to park across the road from his pub for free in lieu of purchasing a drink which we did. Also was invited for their Sunday Roast which was 3 course for a total price of $20. Meal was fabulous. Both husband and wife very friendly and highly recommend for all campers.

Cheap camping with the bonus of the old hotel next door for a drink and food. Facilities are a bit run down but, staying in a van, it provided power, hot showers, water and laundry for just $7.50 per person. Helpful friendly owners but it is for sale.
