We had the best time in Manuka Lodge! It is so well appointed and the fire is absolutely ripper! The Spa was impeccable and it is a wonderful place to stay. So close to the ski field yet it doesn't matter if its shut because you still have a wonderful time cosy in the lodge. Many DVDs, games, and CDs too! Thank you so much, we all had an incredible time"

    We had an amazing night staying at the Kowhai Eco Lodge. It was very well equipped, in a tranquil and stunning setting. The woodfired hot tub was a special extra as well. Would highly recommend for an opportunity to stay in a beautiful forest setting.

     The Beeches is a cosy and cute logcabin with everything you need for a weekend away. Fresh snow fell while we were there and we thoroughly enjoyed walking in the surrounding area.
