We have a TV lounge for guests with a book exchange and videos available. WIFI, computers and a payphone are located within the reception and communal areas. Our shop sells basic grocery items including phone cards, icecreams, sunblock and drinks. Gear hireage (crampons/axes, boots, jackets etc), back country hut passes and intercity coach tickets are all available.
The guest laundry is open in the afternoon hours as well as a drying room for your wet ski and hiking gear.
If adventure is your style, our knowledgeable, friendly front office staff can help you book transport. Our buses leave daily (weather permitting) for the Tongariro Alpine Crossing, Northern Circuit, Whakapapa ski fields, Ruapehu Crater Climb, 42 Traverse and Fishers Track. For water lovers, how about a jetboat ride? Or a canoe trip down the Whanganui River? We can arrange pickup and dropoff from our front door.
And, if you still have energy, why not try our 8m high Indoor Climbing Wall? 55 top climbs graded 10-26 (beginners to advanced). Open daily, either bring your own gear or hire ours. As a guest you receive a discounted rate and if you haven't climbed before, let our staff know and they can 'show you the ropes!'
