What Our Guests Say

2-bedroom apartment was an apartment indeed. Great staff!

We stayed overnight before going to Tongariro Alpine Crossing and were very impressed with the 2-bedroom apartment we booked. It was quite spacious with a well equipped kitchen and together with the coach in the living room it can sleep 7 people! Great staff!

Wonderful Accommodation!

We stayed 5 nights to go skiing and snowboarding and we enjoyed a great stay! The hosts are very friendly, helpful and accommodating. We loved there is a spa pool and we booked a motel/mezzanine unit but were still welcome to use the lodge facilities. We also loved that it was easy walking distance to cafes, museum, walking trails etc. We will be back again to stay next year for more time on the snow! Thanks staff for a wonderful stay!

Definitely Staying Again

Stayed here over the weekend, we had an economy room – 2 singles and a double and it had a TV! We were able to arrange for a late arrival with no problems. The location is great, walking distance to get to OCR and the Junction. The staff were really friendly and if anything was needed they were never far away. The kitchen was clean and the lodge lounge room was great – they even have a pool table.

Spotlessly clean, friendly, helpful staff!

This was exactly what we were looking for a couple of nights stay while skiing Turoa. Friendly staff, clean and well maintained with up to date fittings. Basic, comfortable, clean, warm. Great drying rooms, and a well-equipped communal kitchen. Will definitely stay here again.
