I loved this cute little place! I stayed here for three nights with a partner to go skiing (I'm from Australia). It was good value and very cosy! The couple that run the place were lovely and very accommodating. They had a really beautiful dog too. Its almost like being at home. There is a nice common area with a... More

Very hospitable host. Well organised for Tongariro Crossing groups with everything clearly detailed. Accommodation was certainly fit for purpose, but not high class. The rooms were two levels with an internal stair which meant the layout was not as good as it could have been for the total floor area involved. Bathroom was certainly adequate but not great. Noise from... More

We stayed in a 2 bedroom cottage with 2 bathrooms. It was very spacious and very well equipped with very comfortable beds and good hot water for the showers. The lighting in the living area was very poor making it hard to read, bedroom lighting was better. We appreciated being able to use the spa pool in the hotel, although... More

This hotel offers an excellent package for the Tongariro Crossing. Everything is well organised and clearly outlined to you when checking in. From there on it was plain sailing. The meals and lunch provided were very good. Chris and Christine were extremely hospitable. We appreciated the special touches, especially the spa and a selection of up to date magazines.

I booked three grab one deals for our family to stay and do the crossing. Right from the start Chris our host was very accommodating. This really is a great base for doing the crossing. Our dinner , lunch and two breakfasts were provided and enjoyed. We took advantage of using the lounge area to have a few drinks with... More

We booked a Grab One deal with the intention of walking the Tongariro Crossing, which sadly didn't eventuate because of the weather. No matter, Chris was an excellent host and we had a great stay! Our room was perfect; well kitted out and the bed very comfortable. Had dinner with the other guests which was a nice touch. Will happily... More

The hotel itself was very comfortable and clean with good breakfasts - certainly no complaints there. A minibus, arranged by the hotel, took us to the start of the 8 hour walk beginning at 8 a.m. The walk was fairly busy and approximately 20 km. The views were great although to be fair at the start we didn't get the... More

Great accommodation and lovely food as well. We stayed for 3 days, 2 nights and our main goal was to do the Tongariro crossing. It was too windy to do it on the day that we were supposed to. There's an alternate trek to do but it turned out that we can do the Tongariro the next day. Was double... More

This is a good place to stay overall. However it's getting rundown and in need of maintenance and upgrading. For example the spa pool bubbles don't work, a bit on the cold side and the clearlight roof is growing moss. All not biggies but a spa pool needs to be scrupulously clean and functioning well with multiple people using it........ More

A very uncomfortable bed - just cheap junk that would never have been good. No soundproofing between rooms, and the place generally feels like the sort of rubbishy construction NZ threw up in the 1990s. A lot of traffic noise from the main road outside. The hotel is right where the traffic slows from 100 to 70 and is correspondingly... More
