Two friends and I stayed one night here while we were cycling the Hauraki Rail Trail. We arrived late in the afternoon and after a shower it was great to relax in their pool. They provided separate pool towels. The complex is well set up for family groups and has plenty of room at the back for kids to play.
The rooms were comfortable and the owner very helpful with advice and offered to run us into town or pick us up after a meal etc but we were happy to walk as it only took about 15 minutes.
They are well used to cyclists and had room in their garage to lock up our bikes. I thought it was a great place to stay. I saw it was for sale and hope any new owners also have good people skills.
