We recently spent 2 nights here and had a amazing stay in the Mauna Kea room. It was the furthest away from the reception area and felt the most private.
The reception area was very cosy and full of books and DVDs to use, as well as freshly baked choc chip cookies. The DVD library is a good idea as there is no tv reception out here.
Our room was beautiful and stocked with everything we would need over the next few days. You could tell they'd taken the time to think about their guests needs and include the little things, like binoculars and flashlights for the national park, and an umbrella. The only issue we found was that the wifi did not work in our room (too far away from the router we presume) but it worked fine in the reception area. We were warned of this when checking in, but I would've appreciated a heads up perhaps when booking the room.
The breakfasts were put in the fridge the previous afternoon for you to prepare yourself the next morning, and we found this setup very convenient. There was both a microwave and a toaster oven. The first morning we had a frittata (very yummy) and the second was French toast with Portuguese sausage- this was delicious. Again you could tell they'd taken the time to think about what would work best under these conditions. The other food provided was plentiful and enough for a days worth of eating. There was oatmeal, cereal, a fruit plate, fresh fruit, a muffin, yogurt, granola bars, microwave popcorn, macadamia nuts and a little chocolate- all for two! Then juice, water, tea, coffee, milk and hot cocoa.
We found the bed very comfortable, the shower and water pressure great, and the temperate of the room nice. There was a dehumidifier and gas fire (neither of which needed during our stay), but we enjoyed the fluffy robes and slippers. I wish we'd had time to enjoy the hot tub- if you can spend 3 nights here it's well worth it.
We would definitely stay here again.
