    Comfortable rooms; clean and functional bathroom; well-equipped and clean kitchen.

  • Older travelers
    8.2

    Staff at front desk, very kind and helpful. The beds in our room were so soft and comfortable. Room was simple, budget, but had what we needed. Thanks

    Would have liked to see a less expensive menu for dinner and breakfast. More variety.

  • Older travelers

    The location

    The bed! Roll-together, titled downwards at the head end and the mattress springs were coming thru. Not a good night's sleep. But the worst part was that when I commented on the bed at check-out time, the staff did not really want to know. I was given a feedback form which I filled out but there was no empathy, no nothing.

  • Single
    8.2

    This a great location for anyone who wants a comfortable base in Whakapapa Village, which makes you as close as possible to the ski field. The food and wine in the restaurant was good, and I had a great massage (highly recommended after a day in the snow!).

    The spa was broken and looked like it hadn't been used in ages.

  • Older travelers
    7.0

    The view, ambiance and friendly staff. Rooms were warm albeit very small.

    The rooms were comfortable but tired - cleanliness was not perfect. The bed creaked when you moved. No utensils for preparing the basic meals e.g, breakfast cereals

  • Couple
    7.4

    Friendly, cheerful staff. Good value for money.

    Some aspects looking tired... Ripped pool table cloth and broken video recorder in communal lounge room didn't create a good 1st impression...

  • Group of friends
    7.4

    The restaurant was surprisingly good, I had a great caesar salad and my friend had the venison sausages. Breakfasts also good, although the buffet selection was pretty standard and average. Rooms had nice views and the location is very convenient, minutes from the ski fields. Staff very friendly.

    The shuttle services provided by Skotel was $20 each way per person - very steep. We had a car so we didn't use this service. Rooms weren't spotless, also walls were quite thin, decor very dated but still functional. Spa pool was revolting - dirty floors, awful paint job/lighting, no extractor fan so it just fogged up...

  • Single

    A really great place to stay if you are having a ski trip, Has everything you need to go and have fun on the mountaian. I had never skied before and they really looked after me here, the room was fantastic and the staff were all very welcoming and friendly. One of the best places i have stayed. Good location for exploring the rest of the area too.

    I really can't find any faults with this place.

  • Family with children
    6.6

    Staff very friendly and accomodating and knowledgable, satisfied with dinner meal served, rooms clean and tidy although dated, we had family room 2 x adults anf 4 x children under 11 years, perfect for large familly room would sleep 2 more comfortably, very close to snow

    Mattreses and bed pillows very cheap and nasty, sleeplessnight and very sore back in morning, both my wife and I breakfast poached eggs might has well been hard boiled, for very few people(not busy) very dissapointed with breakfast, would hate to see it when very busy, food cold over cooked and poached eggs like rubber, would accept if cheap but $12 to $15 each for breakfast you should expect better
