The Difference
is in the Details...

Is there better?

Promoted as the best small hotel in NZ made me ponder “how would I know if this is true”. Well, I don’t because I haven’t stayed at many small hotels in Aoteroa. But what I can say is that if there is a better small hotel it must be pretty special, because ATL ticks all the boxes. Firstly, hosts Jocelyn and Scott are happy, friendly, welcoming, well organized and make sure nothing is a problem. Scott also makes fabulous fresh rolls if you are walking the track. The chalets are spacious, well furnished and with a nice outlook on the surrounding countryside. Breakfast delivered to your door is 5 star with high quality ingredients presented well

… The hotel was of the highest standard I have experienced - and I got to travel quite a bit. Totally raised the bar for any hotel I stay at in the future. Everything is just perfect - beyond the location and the view which is wow, everything in the hotel is sweet and tidy so you won't miss anything. The room has everything you need (a fully equipped kitchen, a great shower with everything), and besides there is also a shared kitchen that is even more equipped, with barbecues outside, where you can prepare meals for kings. There is filtered drinking water at all times in the shared kitchen. ….
Really 10/10, and that's only because you can't give 100/10. We booked the accommodation last minute and boy - we were lucky there was just a last minute cancellation!...
The staff was super friendly, helped us get settled and even planned the ride to our next destination, which is beyond what we would expect. Thank you for a stay that was beyond 10/10!!

Heaven on Earth

I'm in lack of words. The owners having thought about every little detail made our stay here (three nights) one of the absolute highlights in our 5 weeks holiday in NZ. The cabin was tastefully decorated, facilities were great and the surroundings perfect - I loved the horses and the colourful birds in our "back yard". The owners were kind and helpful in every way

Businesses of any size can have a positive influence on the climate.

We may be small, but becoming a climate positive business is a powerful step.
