I stayed for four nights after finishing the Heaphy Track in November 2011. Betty and Dave Watson are the new managers and very good at what they do. I had a very enjoyable stay with great food, plenty of beer and friendly personal service. A most welcome place to stop and rest my weary bones. I encourage you to disregard any negative comments that others may have left after bad experiences, the new managers will have the place back to it's former glory in no time.... give them a go! I'll be back in a couple of months. Cheers!
