Iv stayed at the white island twice so far..comfortable, clean and spacious rooms..very well presented...lovely staff..eager to help in any way possible... There was only one issue i felt let the hotel down..at the end of both my stays they couldnt identify that i had paid my room in full..which meant i had to produce receipts..maybe having the one person...

Super helpful friendly staff with great knowledge of the tourist attractions available. Very spacious, very clean, very quiet, close to all the things to do, Excellent value for money. Close to the city centre for dining etc but also away from the noise. Staff organise White Island Trips directly which is so helpful. The rooms are very spacious and comfortable.

Stayed in one of the brand new Eco cabins. It was absolutely gorgeous. I wish I'd taken a picture to show you! The decor was modern and clean with a HUGE bed - extremely comfortable. The bathroom was amazing with a great shower. You could park directly outside your cabin which was very convenient. There was sky TV and free...

We stayed here the night before touring the volcano and it was well worth it. The room we stayed in was a studio style and it was really nice. The bed was comfortable, the bathroom was larger than originally thought and the service was really nice. Highly recommended.

My wife and I spent two nights here to tie in with our booking for the White Island tour. Our studio apartment was clean, spacious and well equipped, including flat screen TV with many stations. It was serviced daily and included free wifi for numerous devices.

Best night's sleep ever in the super king-size bed in the commodious front bedroom in the back bungalow. With three windows open I could hear a morepok call from the nearby bluff. Loved the up-to-date but old kitchen with its meat safe and bins for flour and sugar. Delightful.
