What do guests have to say about staying with us? Here are some reviews from previous guests:
With antique furnishings and new beds, this lodge offers a great and different feel to your lodgings. We also used the kitchen and bbq which all worked well. This may also be the cleanest hotel I have ever been in!

Would highly recommend staying here especially if you are going to walk the Crossing.
Our hosts were exceptional in all ways: great information given and personal attention to any needs whether it was arranging transportation for the Tongariro Crossing or for food, which, by the way, was very well prepared and nutritious. We had both breakfasts and packed lunches. Having the use of laundry facilities free of charge was also an exceptional service provided by no one else on our three week adventure in both the North and South Island so very much appreciated.

Wish we could have spent longer there
This place was nothing short of amazing. From the start when we received such a warm welcome from the hosts, until we left, we felt like we were living in a home away from home. The breakfast we had was like nothing you'd receive in a big hotel, which included home baked bread. Our hosts also provided great tips on where to eat and where to take our kids (2 great Park suggestions). Our kids commented that they'd wished we stayed longer. Out the back was a fantastic grassed area where we could throw balls and pay a horse that was spending some time away from its usual paddock. Really wished we could have stayed longer.

I have been fortunate to travel a bit in my life and stayed in various places, but the customer service and care we have received in this place was second to none. Highly recommend.

It's great to find such attentive hosts that can give you all the info you need to make the trip filled with fun and still give you all the space you need to enjoy your hard earned free time - just the right balance. Great accommodation too with comfy beds, nice clean rooms and a little charm. Great breako and even made us a pack up lunch for the Tongariro walk. Sweet as.
