We stayed in chalet 5 which is separate from the main building. The view was fantastic, the location is awesome but the place is showing its age. Mold is visible in the bathroom, the mattress was well past its best before date, you could feel...More

We spent 2 nights here as a family (2 adults and 2 kids) in one of the cabins. Exactly as expected for a rustic little cabin in a national park with character and little quirks which added to the experience. The views were phenomenal and...More

The location has hiking tracks nearby and offers a good view to the vulcans. The rooms are worn but generally ok. It was a bit noisy due to an older laundry automat. The free WiFi option 100MB for 30min for only one device per room...More

You can take the train from downtown Auckland and not have to worry about driving. The hotel will arrange a shuttle from the train station. Enjoy!
