This was the best place in 3.5 weeks in New Zealand, it just had all we were looking for:
- Very clean rooms, with fresh towels every day
- A well equipped and clean central kitchen with a separate set of crockery and cutlery per room
- A central living room which makes you feel at home directly (including a pool table)
- An owner who maintains the place perfectly and is very kind and helpful
- Free Wi-Fi of proper quality (Skyping with people back home without any problem)
- Great location for doing the Tongariro Crossing (closer then Taupo) + a restaurant across the street that does not look very attracting but serves great food. And there is a track right behind the lodge with a nice walk along the river and up on a little mountain.
- Great value for a very reasonable price
Defenitely go here!
