Stayed just one night after visiting the Hobbiton. Everything was very pleasant. Room was very nice; and at a very reasonable price (paid NZD 140). Really enjoyed a river walk and adjoined memorial park.

This establishment is well run (both the pervious and new management), spotlessly clean, quiet, affordable and comfortable. This is my 8th stay here this year; could have done a lot worse. Well deserving of a 5 rating.

The owner happily printed some google maps for us to find our way around the outlying area, this made our trips into the countryside so easy to navigate The unit we had was spotlessly clean and had everything we needed to be...

Stayed here for a sports trip and booked three family spa units. The owners were fantastic to deal with and nothing was an issue. The rooms were large, modern, clean and beds were very comfortable. Easy to find and close to supermarkets, food outlets and only a short drive to town.

The room was large and comfortable. There was a kitchen for those who wanted to cook and better yet, laundry facilities for families in need of clean clothes. We were placed near the back away from the road traffic. The owner was very helpful in making sure we were happy with our stay.

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.
