Lovely people and clean comfortable rooms. Breakfast was delicious! Highly recommend staying at Twisted Ngaio!
We stayed three nights here, and had dinner and breakfast each day. This is the place to be if you are looking for warm, friendly, kind, homely atmosphere in a new building with lovely sheets, comfortable bed, an en suite and French doors onto a shared (with guests in the second unit) patio with outdoor furniture and lovely views., We felt welcome, the food was delicious, and we had a very happy, peaceful time here; Vanessa is a great cook and we felt spoilt! Thank you, Vanessa and Shaun. :-)
