Stayed for opening weekend of ski season 2018. Location had great access for the Whakapapa ski field. The staff were friendly and the rooms were warm. Great value for money. Enjoyed the breakfast buffet as well. Would stay again and have recommended to others.

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!
