14 of us stayed our last night on the Alps2Ocean cycleway. I last stayed here in 1973 and it is still full of character, has a wonderful feel, great staff, great food and excellent value for money. Louise was great to deal with organising our booking online and our group stayed together in the Huxley wing where we very comfortable. A great dinner on Sunday night with a hearty breakfast to set us off on our 13 km uphill cycle.
Part of its charm is it's relative remoteness (for some)and the stunning views. It is however a great place to escape to and just enjoy the uncrowded outdoors Lake Ohau and the Mackenzie Basin has to offer.
