Close to main road so traffic can be an issue even at night with logging and freight trucks - use the earplugs. Parking is marginal especially when full capacity a space is a premium

Pros: Clean bed
Cons: Layout
Location: The Karangahake gorge is beautiful.
It was a clean and comfortable bed and the over all cleanliness was satisfactory but the layout was hopeless and provided no comfort except in bed.
