We arrived during torrential rain on the west coast, having driven from Wanaka. The waterfalls increased hour by hour until they were pouring onto the road itself. We were not allowed to walk near the glacier in the rain as it was so heavy and the river in danger of flooding. So, soaking wet and rather cold we arrived at Punga Grove to find it well equipped for every weather condition. A gas fire in the room was available even in summer, so that we could dry our clothes. A comfy seating area, big bathroom and best of all a really comfortable bed. Pity we couldn’t use the covered verandah with its own tree fern outside! It was only a very short walk to find dinner in town. Altogether a very memorable evening, admittedly because of the adverse weather.

Stayed 2 nights within a week. One in a motel room and the other in suite. Both very clean. The suite was amazingly quiet. Both rooms had beauitful bush outlooks. We had a gas log fire but unfortuntely we didn't need it.....need to come back in the winter.

Booked direct before we arrived and can't fault the place. Arrived early and meet by a very helpful staff member whom advised room wasn't ready but could park the car outside the room. We stayed in a one bedroomed apartment wonderful size with good tv package which was used due to heavy rain. Place was quite at might and a short walk to town. Would happily return.

The couple who run this are so friendly and helpful. Our room was very spacious with great amenities including gas log fire and outdoor area looking out onto the rainforest. The room was very clean with extra towels, cushions, blankets etc. Shower had great pressure and bathroom in general was very spacious. Very good location walking distance to all cafes, bars, restaurants etc. The Glacier Shuttle collected us directly from the hotel and returned us there also. Big bed and very comfy. Will definitely stay again!
