We stayed here for two nights in April 2008 while doing the Tongariro Crossing Hike and skydiving. The owner was very helpful and booked us on a bus that went to the crossing trail head in the morning. The view of the lake from the balcony is OK, but the property is not actually on the lake front. The room was pleasant enough, spacious and well equipped. There is a large bath tub that we did not use because we spent some time in the outside thermally heated pool which was very relaxing after a hard days hike!
