The Olde Presbytery

I thought that I would just list the places that I've stayed separate from the daily log with a comment or two, sort of like the daily digest.
  • The Olde Presbytery
  • Peter & Faye Koelet
  • 13 Jolie Street
  • Geraldine, New Zealand
  • tel:+64 3 693 9644

The place is small. A Double, a Single and a four bunk dorm. They supply all linens and blankets and towels. The beds are comfortable. The showers are clean and hot and they have a washer and dryer. The kitchen facilities are primitive compared to other hostels, with only a hot plate and an electric fry pan to cook on.
Fay is quite nice. Makes muffins for the guests every morning. Peter is a little insufferable. They have a 15 year old daughter.
