As I said, it's just a warm place to rest during the Tongariro Alpine Crossing. The hotel overall is very nice, all made in wood, but the rooms are a bit small. There is the possibility to cook your own food in a common kitchen, and I liked this because it makes you save some money. There is a free open-air spa, so I suggest you to bring a swimsuit. The catering service is very good, but expensive. The best thing about the hotel is the offer of bus trips to the start of the crossing.
