    It's not the ritz but it's convenient, tidy and has all the basics you would need. Very short drive to shops and outdoor activities. Good pressure shower and heat pump are heaven after a long day on Mt Ruapehu.

  • The place is lean and tidy and perfectly good for the price

    The place is lean and tidy and perfectly good for the price. It does not have much personality - feels like no personal touches. But we have no complaints except the bed is pretty uncomfortable

    Good value and great location; as close to Turoa as you can get and just across the tracks from Powderhorn. Not pristine but was homely and great value for a 5 bed place. Would definitely book again for future ski weekends
