We stayed here for 2 nights. Unfortunately it rained almost the whole time we were there so we couldn't take advantage of our lovely mini-rain forest patio which you can see in some pics. Birds were regular visitors tho. We had a room with bedroom upstairs on mezzanine so there was plenty of space. Nice bathroom and shower. Tumble drier for your wet clothes!! Kitchen perfectly adequate for simple meals. Walking distance to town and Hot Pools (recommended!) Reception staff were helpful and informative

Excellent option for a good price. Simple and clean. The owners are very nice. The shower is wonderful and the room is warm and cozy. I recommend it very much. It doesn’t offer breakfast, but there are lots of places to eat near by. You can do almost everything with no car. All the places are near by the hotel.

Really comfortable. Punga Grove does exactly what it says on the tin. It's basic but spacious, easy and straightforward and the bed was uber comfortable. A no nonsense type of stay. The only negative is that the bedroom is upstairs so going to the loo in the middle of the night means a walk downstairs. That can be a little tricky in the dark!

Lovely cheerful welcoming staff set the tone for a very pleasant stop over in this great motel centrally located with a dramatic backdrop of mountains. Our room, Tui, was spacious and comfortable and had a back veranda opening into a private rainforest style garden, peaceful and serene. The king bed was very comfortable, there was a gas fireplace, a kitchenette and a big bathroom featuring a giant heated mirror that doesn’t mist up. Only a few steps to cafes restaurants and other attractions.
