I stayed with Lance and Mary while enjoying a Ventouro Cycling Camp. The Styx is not expensive but what a fabulous place and great value for money. I enjoyed an intimate atmosphere where nothing is too much trouble. The basics are done to an extremely high standard and the food is made from fresh ingredients and is plentiful. Lance is... More

Beyond all expectation. When they said dinner was included, I did not realise Mary produces culinary miracles! Great room, great view, great company and an amazing wild life tour by Phil (thanks Phil!).

The Styx is 1.5 km from the Maungatautarii Reserve, and serves a most-wonderful Prix-fixe meal, served buffet-style. Ours started with an assortment of dips, followed by the main meal of duck glazed with a cranberry sauce, served on roasted vegetables, excellent lamb chops,broccoli, zucchini fritters (extraordinary things-light and airy and delicious), Caesar salad and couscous. Desert was homemade cardamon ice... More

Just back from another experience at Out in the Styx. I'd been twice previously just for dinner, although just and dinner should not be in the same sentence when describing a meal at Out in the Styx! This time we arrived early in the morning, walked over the mountain and came back for a spa and then dinner. We stayed... More

Thanks for a great weekend at the best guest house in New Zealand. Our hosts Lance & Mary looked after us all in a very relaxed easy way, nothing was too much trouble. Mary's home made food was fantastic and we had lots of fun singing and dancing.

Thanks Lance and Mary for hosting our wedding :) These guys are so relaxed it made all the stresses of planning the reception minimal. The food was excellent and accomodation was top notch. You made us feel so welcome. 10/10

What a wonderful weekend. How can I best describe it? Well, three hours into the walk across the mountain I admit to feeling a bit chilly with still a couple of hours to go. As I chewed on my lunch I fantasised about what would be a perfect conclusion to the walk. I imagined slipping into a warm spa pool... More

We stayed with Lance and Mary while cycling the Waikato river trail. They made us very welcome and provided us not only with useful information about the local area, but delicious home-cooked food and a comfortable room. Friends from a nearby town recommended it as their favourite place to eat and we can quite understand why ... The generous 3... More

Lovely hosts, wonderful vegetarian (and non-vegetarian for the meat eaters) food, very good value for money. Added bonus of experience and helpfulness from all staff for trampers and nature lovers wanting to explore the terrific Maungatatautari reserve. Spa, comfortable rooms and convivial company - a really awesome weekend.
