Comments from past groups -

"​I would like to thank you personally for your hospitality, you went out of your way to accommodate our large group, which we greatly appreciated. I would like to thank you for the communication and information we received from you and your staff."
Sharon Roodbeen - Taranaki Country Basketball

"A huge thank you, we had such a good time at PCL. I was talking to some of the parent’s last week and they were saying that because we had such a good time at PCL it really set the mood for the rest of the trip. We enjoyed the hospitality, very clean rooms, willingness to help us with restaurants, activities, bookings, etc, nothing was a problem and there was always someone there to help us. Staying at PCL was a fantastic experience and a great introduction to the world of backpacking for the tour team.
Improvements – I can’t think of anything and not one of the 32 people on the tour had any complaints or bad comments, you and your team are doing a brilliant job"

Greg Berry, Sports Co-ordinator - Fully Booked Hostel - Auckland Normal Intermediate School – AIMS - Stays very year!

"Thank you so much for your lovely comments about our boys. We really enjoyed the stay and there is nothing I can think of that would need to be changed. In-fact your place has been the most helpful and organised of all the places I have stayed with a sports team. (I have been taking teams away every year since 2000!). The boys really enjoyed the environment and made a few new friends. I will recommend the lodge to any coaches I know taking teams to the Mount"
Rob Warner - Rotorua Boys High School - Tournament Week

"Over-all we had a fantastic week, such a great lodge, and staff are very helpful. Facilities were great, excellent kitchen well equipped for teams staying there. Rooms had good beds and linen. There was a real passion about the place and some of our boys are staying there for the new year so they really enjoyed it. All in all would be hard pressed to find a better backpackers for a team environment."
