    I am very impressed that there is affordable accommodation actually on the mountain. All the necessary amenities are there including an awesome view. The staff are friendly and helpful and don't seem to treat the backpacker customers any different to the hotel guests.

    You can take the train from downtown Auckland and not have to worry about driving. The hotel will arrange a shuttle from the train station. Enjoy!
