Bon Accord Backpackers: "Backpackers 3" Top 5 Page for this destination Akaroa Hotel Tip by Kate-Me

Akaroa Hotels: 26 reviews and 42 photos


Here is a pic of our little bedroom, very tastefully decorated compared to almost all of the backpackers we stayed in, comfortable or not.
(Many had very loud colour schemes, and it wasn't unusual to have 3 or 4 different wall colours in the one room. )
This one was positively peaceful in comparison.
My husband said the bed could have been a bit more comfortable, but in a fairly expensive town, I think we got a good deal here, and anyway, when you travel several hours a day and walk and wander for the rest of it, sleep tends to come pretty quickly.

Unique Qualities: I liked the decor of our room - it was the only one on the trip to have extra special little touches like a bottle of water on the dresser and 2 cups (plastic but seaside themed with moulded shells pattern) plus the usual tea and coffee.
Nice towels also included in the room rate.
