Three of us stayed here for several nights in June and found it to be clean, cozy, friendly and in a great location for Whakarewarewa. (It is an easy walk to The Redwoods.) We stayed in a one bedroom unit with a king (very comfy bed!!!) in the bedroom and a comfortable single in the living area. Parking is just outside the door. WiFi is free and the reception is good. Shower and bath were very nice, esp. the heated towel bars that kept everything dry. There is a spa on the porch which I made use of after hiking the Tokorangi Pa track. The owners couldn't be more helpful and friendly. We were given a very reasonable offseason rate as well. Several restaurants are within walking distance and I recommend Distinctions Pub for the humongous sandwiches which make two meals. The Whakarewarewa geothermal park is just around the corner and we did not smell anything and I have an acute sense of smell.
