Reviewed 13 March 2009

Truly wonderful accommodation situated at the top of the canyon with stunning views of the Rangitikei River. Steve and Trudi are truly wonderful hosts. Recommend the full day rafting and wilderness fishing down 14km of pristine clear flowing river. Superb sight fishing with the dry fly, Steve works hard to give you the best chance of catching a hard fighting rainbow and has plenty of dry humour to make the day entertaining. Great for the non fisher too with the spectacular ' Lord of the Rings' scenery and fun rafting.
Top a perfect day with a glass of wine in the spa with a view followed by Trudi's home cooking and what surely must be the best stay in New Zealand.
