I knew nothing about this truly hidden gem and am so glad I found it. A pleasant drive of just over 2 hours from Auckland through the lovely Waikato farmland. I cannot say enough about how great this place is. Only 1km from Maungatautari ecological restoration project which is fantastic to visit and see NZ's flaura and fauna. Comfortable clean... More

Most people staying here are doing the walk over Sanctuary Mountain (Mount Maungatautari) but other's just stay because it's great to stop off if in the area. It is a good idea to try and book ahead as being more of a guest house it is not always available and even if you want to pop in for dinner it... More

'Out in the Styx' offers the perfect base from which to roam the beautiful South Waikato region. For 'road cyclist's ,you'll not find an area with a greater range of exciting beautiful circuits on quiet, sealed, car free roads. We had three nights here over Labour weekend in comfortable rooms and great bathrooms. The days started with fantastic breakfasts to... More

We had a wonderful visit back to Out in the Stixs last week. We stayed as part of the Waikato River Trail bike ride and Lance was extremely helpful and knowledgeable about the trail and very willing to fit in with our plans re dropoffs and pickups. The food was amazing and plenty of it, the dinner, bed and breakfast... More

Was going to stay one night but stayed two. What a friendly, peaceful and comfortable place, serving delicious and plentiful food. Lovely garden with chairs and loungers, and spa pool. Dinner bed and breakfast is an excellent package! Lance and Mary were very welcoming and were also taking people here and there for different activities too (pick up/drop off). Thanks!... More

First, I was a little disappointed. In myself. I was late in meeting up with the host of the guesthouse because I had previously asked him for a ride to the hotel. However, he was totally understanding. Not only did he give me a ride to the house, but he was also very friendly to me and made me feel... More

My husband and I and two friends went here for a friend's birthday dinner. We decided to stay the night. We were very pleased we did. The ensuite rooms are lovely and you couldn't ask for better food. Three courses for dinner plus cheese and fruit. All very tasty and the breakfast was almost better. Highly recommended.

Perfect location if you're visiting the beautiful Maungautatari sanctuary. The location is just stunning; it was so relaxing and tranquil with amazing views. The food was DIVINE! (The food alone is worth a visit!). Lance was incredibly welcoming and he made me feel completely relaxed and at home. I'll definitely be back to visit Maungautatari and I'll certainly be staying...

This place will nourish your soul. Highly recommend staying here. Beautiful location, delicious food. After walking up Maungatautari, returning to a hot spa and a quality, home cooked buffet dinner was wonderful. Thank you to Lance and Mary for an unforgettable weekend.

This is the second time we have stayed here. It was just as good as our first stay. We went for a walk in the southern enclosure then a nice soak then a great meal, a little rushed as we had to go and visit Sirocco. We will be back at some time
