  • Well located for activities at Mt Ruapehu and or Chateau Tongariro

    Well located for activities at Mt Ruapehu and or Chateau Tongariro. Local bar/restaurant and 4 Square shop were first class. House is well set up with everything that a group would need, but could benefit greatly by removing a couple of the queen/king beds and replacing them with twin singles. We also consider that provision of bed linen and towels should be part of the significant price that we were charged. There is also no WiFi available, it is an expected option in today's world.

    Owner/manager responds:

    Thank you for the feedback. We're glad you found the house set up with all the facilities your group needed. The bedding option work well for the majority of guests who are families sharing the house, so require double beds and bunk beds. One of the ways to keep costs down for guest is to offer the option for them to provide their own linen. For a group as in this case the price per person was far less than at a fully serviced hotel or motel with linen & amenities such as wifi.
