    The property suited the needs of our group extremely well. It was a quiet, relaxing and lovely environment to be in. The house was extremely well set up for cooking, sleeping and entertainment. All the information needed to find out more about the area was available and we made short forays into the local area for exhibitions, shops, cafes and meeting the locals. The garden is lovely and the building has been renovated giving it a fresh feel. But we loved it before as well! Can recommend highly.

    The post office is absolutely gourgeous. The atmosphere in the house is so friendly, it´s so well kept and lovely decorated and on top of that there is a thermal pool in the garden. Absolutely magic, we have recommended it to everybody we know.

    Warm and comfortable. Interesting historically. Full of character and personal touches. Enjoyed the challenge of getting the mineral pool working. Stacks to do in the area. Highly recommended.

    Great location, 1/2 an hour to Whakapapa, and hot pools across the road. Historical, slightly quirky feel to the place, but comfortable and clean. Radiators were great, nice and warm.. We had a good stay. Thanks very much.
