“Not what we were expecting”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 9 November 2007

We stayed in the Studio Suite which is OK but not great (only water for example in bathroom vs kitchenette), no kitchen sink. Because its upstairs when someone is downstairs in the self contained apartment you can hear the TV, feel/hear them going up and down the stairs, hear talking, etc. That really lets the place down.
The hosts who are based at Punga Lodge which they also own are very helpful and staying at Punga Lodge will see you receive first rate hospitality. Unfortunately, the studio suite didn't meet our expectations on our stay and won't be returning to Tawa Lodge.

  • Liked — The view and the hospitality of the owners
  • Disliked — The noise
  • Stayed October 2007, travelled as a couple
