We called into the i-site twice during our 5-day stay in Te Aroha and found the i-site gave us exactly the information we needed.

For example, we arrived by bus on a Monday afternoon and had been expecting takeaways would be all we'd manage for dinner that night. Visiting the i-site for information about walks and things to do, the very helpful staff member let slip that Villa Nine's manager had just decided to open for dinners on Mondays and Tuesdays. Beautiful food (in fact, between Ironique, Taj Indian Restaurant, Villa Nine and Saz Kebab, the quality of the food was outstanding in Te Aroha.)

Also, we'd done our best using google to find a taxi or shuttle to Paeroa, to no avail, but we learnt about two other providers whom we hadn't found, so that was well worth going to ask.

The I-site was full of information about the local sculpture, architecture, baths, walks and geography. Te Aroha was pretty impressive altogether. We'll definitely go back.

I've answered the specific questions below with not sure because I'm writing about the I-site itself. I would have said Yes if I was writing about Te Aroha, or even about the lovely Domain next door.

We stayed at Te Aroha motel next door so great location of visitor center. Extensive range of brochures on accommodation and areas to visit in Te aroha and in New Zealand. Friendly staff willing to assist. We tied up staff member trying to source accommodation options for us in Wellington . We wanted to be conveniently located to catch interislander ferry. Was getting embarrassed at amount of time we occupied of sole staff member trying to source opur accommodation. She didnt give up and finally we located a vacancy in a inner city hotel. Our highest recommendation for staff working at this centre. Do visit .You wont be dissapointed

What a fantastic gem we have. Michelle and her team are so good and I do love going in there. The prices are not expensive and a good selection. In fact Christmas is coming up.....I was just a bit disappointed that one of the kid shirts didn't come in an adult size. 1 Kiwi, 2 kiwi, red kiwi, blue kiwi...get adult sizes and I'm in.

Stopped in this visitors center and was greeted with a friendly smile and welcome. The lady was very helpful with pointing me to the pamphlets that told me about the town and surrounding area. Loved her enthusiasm.
