We have just spent a lovely weekend at Snowhaven lodge. We were in a studio room which was modern, clean and well equipped. The bed and pillows were really comfy. Yes there is a bit of road noise but not excessive and I always travel with ear plugs anyway. The best bit was the Thai massage... an hour of absolute bliss. Soft music and beautiful smelling oils, so good after our Old Coach Road bike trip. There's a spa too.
Thank you so much to everyone at Snowhaven Lodge, we had a fabulous weekend :)
Very welcoming and relaxed check in, we had no booking just showed up at the door basically. Receptionist lovely to deal with. Room small, had everything we required for one night, comfy bed, heat pump, clean and tidy, tea, coffee etc. metres from the centre of town and free parking/ internet. We had a front room facing street, that's the only problem and niggle, lots of noise from trucks, cars etc. The view of mountain, outstanding. Would stay again but at the back.
Would so recommend staying at the B and B accomodation. On Manuka street, different location to Snowhaven. Very friendly host, comfy bed and nice breakfast. Warm room too. I booked via the snow haven website and got details of address via text.
Beware! This is NOT a B & B in my opinion!
When we booked for breakfast to the room we were
surprised to find that we would have to go 100 meters
up the road to the associated snowman cafe!!
My wife is in her 70s & she was looking forward to breakfast in bed
for her birthday.
NEVER in all our stays have we had to walk down the
street in order to have breakfast!
No mention of this in any of the advertising!
Had we known of this we would not have booked the place.
Secondly...the room was tiny.
No bigger than an average motorhome.
There was a low level of choice & quantity
of tea & coffee.
The staff person did offer a room change to the rear of
the premises where it was quieter.
Accommodation was clean &
the shower was excellent.
We stayed for three nights at the B&B and considered ourselves very lucky! Lynn was the perfect Lady of the house and extended warm welcome and hospitality to us throughout our stay. We felt very much at home away from home (well hers is nicer than ours : ) The house is very beautifully decorated, combining coziness and elegance. We could relax and read in a lovely lounge with big sofas. The ensuite king bedroom was a haven with probably the best bed in our long journey, the bathroom had one of the best showers, and everything was impeccably fresh and plush. There were many unexpected and nice amenities, eg lovely bathrobes. We have traveled extensively in both Old and New World, prefer B&Bs, and found the winner now with Snowhaven and Lynn. Thank you so much for an unforgettable stay!
