Thanks Lynne. Your hospitality was second to none. And the pancakes for breakfast were awesome. We certainly came at a quiet time of the year and were very gratefully for the fantastic room. Loved that the fire was going on a cool evening.

We visited with our 18, & 20 year old boys, who were not too impressed with the small little town we'd stumbled upon. But after a few hours they quite liked the quietness after the bustle of Taupo. The rooms at Snowhaven are clean and tidy nothing flashy but did have cooking facilities although a little cramped but enough to...

A great place to stay. Nothing was too difficult and the lady there was fantastic. The room was very tidy and clean, i would highly recommend this as a destination if you are in the area. Great place in a quaint town.

Stayed here for 2 nights with my family. Rooms are clean, nothing flashy. Easy walk to just about everything in town. 45 minutes or so from Turanga for rafting and about 1.5hours from Lake Taupo. Front desk help was pleasant enough. Would stay here again

I stayed at the B&B accommodation with my Fiancé after paddling the Whanganui River. We received a very friendly greeting and we're picked up with our bags and driven to the front door by the owner. The accommodation was beautiful and very spacious communal areas. We were made to feel very much at home. The communal areas are very large...

Snowhaven is a management company for several properties and apparently doesn't own the units, so they are a bit different depending on what you rent. Our 3 bed/2 bath town home was conveniently located a 20 minute drive from Turoa Skifield and 45 minute drive from Whakapapa Skifield, a 10 minute walk from a restaurant and snow shop, and a...

This is a very basic accommodation, probably fine for a single young 20-something on a ski holiday - but really Spartan for a family room! I kept wondering what I was missing, considering the other glowing reviews for this place ... I really don't get them. The room (we were in room 6) is really small, and the furniture really...

Lynne is a fantastic host and makes the best breakfasts - her French toast with bacon, bananas & maple syrup is amazing. After a day on the ski field it was brilliant to come home to a toasty warm house and great company. Thoroughly recommend this B & B
