My first stay at Out in the Styx was very memorable. Winter evening drinks around the fire, a beautiful home cooked meal, topped off with a spa listening to the sounds of kiwi and more pork at the neighbouring Maungatautari Sanctuary.
Owner Lance is a very passionate supporter of the Sanctuary and provided us with alot of information.
Rooms very adequate with a shared lounge room available to relax. Rural outlook toward mountain.
Will definitely return and recommend to friends.
- Official Description (provided by the hotel):
- Our family have been living here and operating as a restaurant and guesthouse for over 20 years. We don't have a menu but our guests are always satisfied with the delicious meals we prepare and the gorgeous setting. We are very fortunate to look directly up at the the forested mountains within the Maungatautari Ecological Island, a 3500 hectare pest free scenic reserve. We operate a drop-off service for hikers walking the traverse and our van can take up to 8 cycles for drop off and pickups on the Waikato River Trail. We are between Rotorua and Waitomo and our rates include a four course dinner and a two course breakfast. ... more less
