My boyfriend and I had a great weekend at Albergo. We were worried about being cold leaving Auckland for Hanmer Springs but found that this was not an issue as Albergo not only had a warm and cosy room for us but also a warm welcome from the hosts. We had a late flight in, but the hosts were kind... More

The Thermal Pools Pamper Packs have proven to be very popular with Albergo B&B as guests find they not only get a 3 course breakfast but enjoy the tranquillity of the surroundings we have. Thank you for your kind words and let us hope it is not too long before we can catch up again. More
