Comfortable spacious studio unit. Not luxurious but comfortable. Friendly check in and check out. Surrounded by wildlife. Nature walk to Lake Rotoiti easily accessed rather than walking on the road. Dined at the Alpine Lodge for two nights, with a lunch at Clinkers Cafe.

"Contemporary studios seemed most spacious and nicest to me; backed onto bush and trees."
"Not sure, but suggest to just stay one night at this place"
