It was very clean and the room was huge! Good location right by the thermal springs and only a two minute walk to the village. Free coffee, tea and towels.

... inn. It wasn't anything special, but it had an open fire. It was relatively clean and it wasn't lake tekapo. Nor was it Sails at Nelson. (It was definitely closer to tekapo than Nelson.)

We gave our surplus foods and drinks to our inn keepers. Watched a movie and went to ...
