Very friendly staff and great hotel. Nice modern room and bathroom. I wish there was bathtub but it seams it's very New Zealand thing not to have one as I havnt had in any hotel I've stayed so far. Great packages for the Tongariro Crossing hike - hotel organise drop off and pick up and also pack very nice lunch!...

The location of the place is good for doing all the hikes in the area. From the outside the hotel looks like an old barn, the rooms are standard with a tiny toilet/shower. They have a common area with kitchen and TV. On a good note, the staff is very friendly and helpful. It is an OK hotel, so don't...

It's ok, no problems at all. Rooms maybe a bit small. Second day we was a bit unlucky, had a family with kids over us. They was jumping around,....after 2 hours it's getting annoying. Don't know why they put family's on the second floor, makes no sense at all, as you can hear everything, also you're neighbours. A lot of...

I sent an email to book two nights in a standard double room because I had a grabone voucher. I mentioned it was my birthday and that I wanted a nice view. The answer was that I had to upgrade because the type of room included with the deal was not available, but when I check other websites it said...

We had a dinner in the restaurant at 8.00pm and from 9.30pm the bar was closed. But we are in the restaurant still eating with some more customers, more tables and no more possibility to have a drink. I found that not professional at all!! Specially in the busy period!

We spent a weekend here as part of the Tongariro Crossing experience. The accomodations are simple and clean sufficiently fitted out. There's an onsite restaurant and bar and great service and food. We will come back again.

Stayed 2 nights at this hotel to do The Tongariro Crossing. Great warm rooms but the best was the staff. Excellent to have friendly Kiwi staff - from Tony the bus driver to Lene the receptionist and Sami the barman. Very helpful and knowledgeable about the area.

We stayed two nights while visiting the area to walk the Tongariro Alpine Crossing. Nice and comfortable without being anything special. You can book a return shuttle from the hotel to the Crossing which is handy. We got a GrabOne deal online, which was $269 for two people for two nights accommodation, two continental breakfasts, shuttle to the Crossing and...

This hotel is brilliant if you are planning on doing the Tongariro Crossing. It is close to the Crossing and provides a minibus service at a cost of $35 which is reasonable considering the service they provide in dropping you off and picking you up and the driver provides a really good insight into what to expect prior to everyone...
