The owners were lovely people and put my daughter and I into a 2 bedroom unit as they had it spare. Very clean and tidy and comfortable beds. Hot pools are amazing.

Just what we needed

We were looking for somewhere to spend the night to break up our journey up the North Island. This fit the bill. Friendly, responsive staff, the unit was simple and comfortable. Thank you for a very pleasant, stress free family stay.

Overnight to catch the Tongariro Crossing

Absolutely immaculate, clean and warm. Had a great nights sleep. Loved the old world spa and the owners are something else. Just lovely. Loved the whole experience.
