We found the owner who checked us in very pleasant helpful and proud of her business. She created a very positive environment .The room was more than adequate for the type and she was considerate in placing us far from the road noise.

This is a really nice hotel and the couple the run the hotel are fantastic. The rooms are very clean and the beds very very comfortable. The location is easily accessible to travel around the area and you are only about an hour from the Glow Worm caves.

We arrived on a Tuesday night after a very long trip from Minnesota. We had a large room with an extra bedroom which worked well for us (couple traveling with young adult son). The room was very clean and quiet, even though the road by the hotel is fairly busy. The staff were very courteous and helpful.

Hi Stowaways thanks for the fabulous review , we do try and cater to the requirement for the business traveller like yourself as well as the families. The SKY decoders in each room with 50+ channels have certainly been a big hit and air-conditioning makes the humid Waikato nights more pleasant. Look forward to seeing you again on your return...
