I'm new to the sport of rock climbing, but I'm told that some of New Zealand's best bolted climbs are within easy travel of Bryce's - and that's why you'd stay here. Bryce's is basic accommodation, bunk rooms with own bathroom, and shared kitchen facilities, but the location is great for rock climbing. The man himself has a personality larger than the Waikato (the province in which he is located, and speaks with much 'animation'! He also runs a cafe and a rock climbing shop at the same location. The closest town is Kihikihi which is probably 30ish minutes away. The surrounding countryside is quite pretty with rolling hills, farm buildings and plenty of crags.
