We had the pleasure of staying at Thornton Lodge for approximately 3 months, From the ential first phone call to the very last day hospitality was out standing. Berneice and Selwyn couldnt do enough to make our stay as comfortable as possible nothing was a problem. The rooms were very clean and tidy and catered for our needs. The fact that we could also eat in Town and there was know problem with charging it back to our rooms. We will not hesitate to stay there again and highly recommened for others stay at the Thornton Lodge if you are staying in Waipukuarau or nearby.
