Loved everything about this hotel, felt like I was back in the alps in Europe. The hot pop was a stand out so much better than I imagined and the bar service made it epic. Lovely rooms and the noise didn’t bother us

We managed to snag the last room for the night. It is a great little hotel and one of the closest to mount Ruhapehu. Rooms were large and spacious. The hot pool was amazing (recommend getting there after 8pm as it is packed before that)....More
