The cabin was quaint and small. It was hot to start but we acclimatised quickly. The park is a short drive south of the town. There is a kitchen where you can cook meals, and the cabin we stayed in had a small fridge with a small freezer, bunks and a queen bed. There was a tv set on a set of drawers, inside the drawers there were cooking and eating implements. I bought my own cooking and eating implements though. The floor was floorboards. There is free wifi but vouchers expire and we didn't like to continue to ask for more vouchers. Access to the wifi was slow without the vouchers, but we made do with the NZ sim. Toilets and showers were clean and never a wait for them, and most of the time the water was hot, once the water was cold but that was fixed quickly. As the park is out of town we experienced a couple of water outages, I believe the park relies on a tank, that issue was rectified quickly too. The washing machines were good, and there was a dryer and a clothes line. There was a piano and pool room, and kids can use an adventure playground which has swings, and a trampoline. The gardens are well kept, but walk around in shoes or thongs because there are many acorns on the ground. The oak trees are tall and magnificent. The staff are friendly and always willing to help. There are a number of long term campers who were also more than willing to offer assistance if needed. We did not try the hot pools unfortunately, but we did go to a hot pool at Tokaanu which is a bit more than a two hour drive south of Te Aroha. In the township of Te Aroha there is a hot pool facility also. There is a Countdown supermarket in town. We also did a walk to Wairere Falls which looks like a forest something out of Lord of the Rings, and driving past Paeroa towards the beach there is an amazing drive through a gorge. Waihi Beach is well worth a look at and less than a one hour drive from the park.
