Guest reviews for Te Kaha

Stayed June 2021

This place was great, extremely tidy and had everything we needed. Perfect in winter with a cosy fireplace that heats the whole house, also great for kids, bunk beds and a few games for them to play. Location wise was 10 minutes to some hot pools that were reasonably priced and not overly busy - even on a long weekend. We enjoyed the location and our stay.
