  • Despite a late check-in with no one at the reception when I came in, arrangements were made to leave the keys at the reception and that made it real easy. I took the dormitory room and facilities were good. 5

  • We had a great time. I had my brother and sister over from Oz and they thought it was great! I can't believe we could even play paintball on the property and the flying fox was awesome! Thanks for a great weekend! 5

  • Lovely receptionist/front of house. The unit was lovely, quite modern and well looked after, always nice and warm, especially appreciated this during the cold nights as it meant we slept well. Drive to Whakapapa was quick with incredibly beautiful scenery. Wish we had time (and more to the point) enough people to do the paint ball that was available on site (min of 6 people required). 5

  • Very nice and clean accommodation. We were surprised that the rooms were so warm with just a very tiny heater, when the outside temperature was -2 degrees. Facilities are great and rooms well appointed. Highly recommended. 5

  • Comfortable, warm, affordable accommodation for a family of 5. Everything there that one needs to cook up a good meal. Clean and tidy will recommend to others. Thanks for the great stay! 5

  • We had a great time here. The unit was warm. The owners were friendly. The kids had a blast especially when they discovered the movie room and fed the goat out the window of our unit. I recommend you take some DVDs with you to watch. We will be going again. 5
