We stayed one night before doing the glow worm caves. It happened to be a Monday which ment not much was open in the little town but a 25 min drive to Te Awamutu gave us more options for dinner. The room was clean and comfortable and breakfast was brilliant, just what we needed before heading off to the caves.... More

Mr runs this place while his wife heads out to the office. And he does a fantastic job, the rooms are clean and well appointed, breakfast was substantial and well done. The price was exceptional, although be prepared with cash on hand. The grounds are stunning, a great many private seating areas, a pool and walking distance to downtown Pirongia

In response, there are 4 double power points in this room so plenty to choose from to boil a kettle and two of these double power points are beside a table.
