    Enjoyed this property the personal touch of owner of cleaning the ice off the windscreen in the morning. Your own heated pool or use of the larger pool will use again if in Taupo

    Best weekend getaway :) The private thermal hot pool with our suite with a nice garden setting was a great way to unwind. The king size bed was very comfortable

    What a stay... We loved our super comfy beds, we loved the spacious rooms for a family of 5 - great cooking facilities for us too meant that we could make our own breakfast and dinner at home to save some money. We especially loved our thermal spa - with the kids even loving that they can swim in the pool in April still. Staff are also very friendly and welcoming. Wish we stayed a week here...
