We stayed post-COVID-lockdowns, so it was very quiet which suited us perfectly. We were able to arrive prior to check-in time and were welcomed warmly by the staff. The kitchen/lounge facilities are extensive, the bed was comfortable and everything was neat and clean. - Spa was not working

Thank you! Lovely hospitality. Cozy and warm room, nice queen bed, nice bathroom, super kitchen, and- even more magical- a soak we looked forward to. There’s nothing like a hot tub under the southern cross and punga. Prices were extremely reasonable. Cute posters and nice touches. Quiet, warm, and comfortable. A super way to recover from some hard tramping.

Friendly and efficient checkin sorted out our 'walkup' enquiry and got us a family room after a long day on the Welcome Flat track. Very comfortable and a lot of amenities - with a good choice of room options. Our family room had beds for 5 and wifi was good on multiple devices,

Sometimes you get people's loyalty if you are actually at least nice to them. these greedy people only think about money and never really care about anything else. there will be a point in your life where you will be in a tough place. I just hope that people will actually care and not laugh about it just how you did to us. will make sure to never recommend you to anyone
