Google Review Haydn Murdoc: Awesome place to stay in Raetihi, especially for a big group like we had (30 people). The rooms were warm, the beds comfy and there were plenty of beds, they even provided individual hot water bottles. The bathrooms were clean and tidy and there was plenty of hot water in the high-pressure showers. They have two outdoor spas, a large bbq area, complete with outdoor fireplace. There are two separate kitchens and dining areas, both with well stocked wood burners in them. The largest dining area had enough space for a dance floor, which we happily utilised. The staff were helpful, but unobtrusive. Very reasonably priced. A great option for accommodation, whether you are just wanting a break away from it all or to use it as a base for access to the ski fields of Mt Ruapehu.
