Thanks for your positive comments and we're glad that you enjoyed your stay with us. We've been working hard to upgrade our rooms and it's good to know that our guests appreciate the changes. Sorry that the spa was unavailable during your stay but sometimes we have to close it temporarily to clean and re-balance the water after heavy use. We'll make sure that it's in pristine condition for you when you return:) Regards Kim & Paula.

The Peace Run team stayed here for one night, running from Auckland to Wellington via Tauranga. Beautiful place to stay. Friendly, warm hearted managers, comfortable, quiet, clean, and high quality. The best shower! Good kitchenette, lounge and dining in our 2- bedroom place.
