      Nice, big, clean room. Free wifi very useful. Excellent location within a few minutes walk of restaurants and helicopter place.

      We had a beautiful room at the edge of the rain forest, wish we were staying longer. Location great to walk to restaurants etc. and very quick drive to Franz-Josef Glacier. Perfect.

    • Older travelers

      The accommodation was very comfortable.Modern,clean rooms. Lovely log burner in the room making it very warm and cosy.The hosts were friendly and knowledgeable about local activities.

    • Family with children
      8.2

      I thought the room size was excellent and the facilities were good - tv, bedside lights, heaters in rooms, table and chairs, coffee plunger etc. The reception was helpful and friendly. The location is great, opposite the hot pools and away from the main road. Short walking distance to everything. Very quiet.

      I really just want to make a suggestion that you put a vegetable or pasta/rice strainer in kitchen as this is very useful. And the curtains have hems that have come down. Everything else was great.

    • Couple
      7.8

      The room was spacious and the kitchenette was convenient. Also, the location/access was great!

      The tv stand is so low that you can't lie in bed and see the tv program.

      Booked online and expected a basic motel. Instead, found a suite with modern facilities, clean and modern. Far exceeded expectations. Would recommend!

      Great location. Warm unit.

      Not enough lounge chairs in unit for number of guests.

    • Couple
      9.2

      Excellent location to nearby restaurants, easy to find, beautiful rainforest surrounding (view from the room). Clean and modern facilities, especially the kitchen amenities.

    • Group of friends
      9.6

      Big spacious room...modern and clean with full amenities like microwave fridge utensils.Excellant value.

      There were 2 big black flies inside the room which we swatted.I dont know where it came from.

    • Older travelers
      9.6

      The staff was friendly, the grounds gorgeous and the location to local sights perfect. Loved the garden patio area outside the room.

      Would be nice to have the option of a quick inexpensive light self-serve breakfast. Just toast and juice, fruit coffee.

    • Family with children
      10.0

      We stayed in the family unit nearest the road. I was worried it might be noisy but it was fine. It was extremely spacious, even for a family of five - more like a small house than a unit. The decor was nice. We liked the free wifi voucher - one $5 voucher was plenty for our stay. Free use of DVDs and board games was a nice touch. The cost was very reasonable for the standard, compared with other accommodation on our holiday.

      Small thing, but a heated towel rail would be great!

    • Family with children
      10.0

      Proximity to restaurant and hot pools. Modern facilities. Owners were very understanding following our 3 year old having a tummy upset in the night. Were prepared to pay extra towards cleaning expenses. Would definitely recommend Punga Grove to friends visiting the area.
