"Great Place for Families. Stayed there with my family. The rooms were clean and great value, A suite for 5 people was only $180. It's a family owned business and the owners were really lovely. Nice view of the geysers which would cost $60 to go see but you can see for free from here." RainCl0ud - Palmerston North (22 Feb 2015)
