Cafe? Nope. Nuh-huh. Not ever again. The bus I catch to Whangarei from time to time stops off here. But now I refuse to get off the bus. The rudest service I've experienced (and I'm pretty sure he was the manager/owner). Blunt, in a rush, clearly just wanted my money - and to hurry up about it.
But I suppose when you have a bus load of people arriving 4 times a day you don't have to rely on decent customer service to make your business grow.
Motel? No idea. Never stayed. Can't imagine I will.
