“The Environment Ministry currently warns councils to plan on 50cm as a base rise by 2090-2099, and warns that all assessments should consider the consequences of at least 80cm, but a paper released today by New Zealand's science academy, the Royal Society, used more recent research suggesting rises of as much a 1.9m and 2.2m.” (Source, Hawke’s Bay Today)

After a recent assessment by Qualmark we are pleased to advise that we have again achieved the Four Star Plus level from our national accommodation quality system. We are sure that the policy we have to constantly improve our property by making changes and regularly replacing chattels really assists us to remain at a high level of achievement.
We are strong supporters of Qualmark and are pleased more sections of the tourism industry are using their assessment system and that our Qualmark systems are being more recognised by our overseas visitors.
