Home away from home”

We really enjoyed our stay. The apartment was clean and tidy and there was a lot of room to relax. There were plenty of towels, the heating was more than adequate and we could not fault anything. It was so close to the shuttle to get to Tongariro, the location was perfect for us. The packed lunch was great and it was convenient. The breakfast was all you could want to start the day. The staff were friendly and helpful. We had the best sleep because it was so quiet. We had an excellent stay and we would come back again.

Clean rooms. Close to town, plenty of parking spaces, but the noise outside the rooms can be heard quite clearly and loudly when u are in the room due to the thin walls and i think theres no door closer attached to the doors of bathrooms and through common area, thats why it is always shut so loudly.
