a handy little find

4.0 of 5 bubblesReviewed 6 Jan 2018
When we booked this place in December, all we could get was a twin bunk room, so we asked that if they had any cancellations, could we get a double room. By the time we arrived in January that had happened. We had a lovely little room, one of 3, with a little porch for socialising. The bed was comfortable, and the room was spotlessly clean with a cabinet, an easy chair and hooks on the wall for clothes. The only drawback was that the bathroom facilities were in another building - not a biggie. There was a very friendly cat and some delightful cooing pigeons, and the person in charge was welcoming and capable. The Reception sign had been rather overgrown, so we did spend a bit of time telling new people where to find it.

Very friendly staff and a wonderful location that feels tucked away in a corner of the bush even though it's still technically in the city! Shared facilities and the bungalow I stayed in were what you'd expect for the price point - a bit older and maybe a bit musty, but otherwise quaint and comfortable.

The Eco park has an exceptionally friendly manager and offers everything you need. The common room has cosy sofas and is situated right next to the kitchen. A family of (protected) eels live in the creek that runs through the property.

This is an amazing place to stay. We originally had a small room in the main building then the lovey lady that seemed to be running round doing everything realised the kids were noisey so moved us to a bigger lodge. We had a joined room to the boys and the huge open dinning area to ourselves and the occasional guest from other cabins pop in. Excellent service from this underestimated B&B definitely will be coming back.

Very nice experience in a friendly hostel with a great receptionist strongly dedicated to her customers. I recommend this hostel for people who plan to do the Pouakai Crossing or other loops at the Mt Taranaki. It is an opportunity to meat other hikers in great conditions.
