Our Christmas work party. What a night to remember 18 of is all dressed up, looking just the part. Loved having a gun plastered to my hip, what an experience. A wonderful night full of fun and laughter and team building. This place is so special and so beautifully done, thank you to staff for there friendliness and wonderful smiles. Best work party ever
We have just experienced a most memorable time in our lives. This beautifully authentic Old Western Town is further enhanced by the “characters” that run it! Every attention to detail has been taken using quality materials – to be treasured for ever. A “living museum.” Loved the atmosphere, the friendly staff, singing by the campfire – harmonising – lovely! We will definitely “spread the word” about this fabulous place. Thank you so much!
A perfect wedding venue for our cowgirl bride arriving on her white horse “Starlight” and leaving with her groom on “Black.” Where else but this charming “Wild West” town could this be done! A wonderful setting for a perfect romantic, dreamlike wedding. Thank you
Thanks to Rosita, Pancho and the team for their hospitality, service and commitment to our team and activities. It was a fantastic experience and they enjoyed it immensely. The meals were great, and you can’t really appreciate it all until “you see it in the flesh”. I must say it is an honor to be able to experience the ranch and that it is not kept for a select few, it’s a special treat to be allowed access and to appreciate the work, detail and passion that has gone into creating it .. so thank you for sharing .
Wow! What an amazing place. We came here on Mystery Weekend with 2 other couples, and had just an awesome time! This place is just beautiful, the attention to detail amazing. Lots of fun and laughter. Food was wonderful, lots of memories have been had. Thanks once again
This was truly my best experience in many a year. I could not find any fault at all. The food was excellent, the staff were very polite and helpful. I would rate this Hotel 10 our of 10 and I will return to this unique place in the near future. Many thanks!
This is a hidden gem of NZ. We have experienced an absolutely awesome weekend. The facility is a credit to the inspiration and vision to the founders. The staff, activities and food were just great. Thank you so much.
What amazing vision to build and reinvent the Wild West which has been done in great detail and obviously with great passion. Our hosts looked after us so well with great humour at all times. Lovely accommodation, especially the bed, very luxurious. We wish you all the best for the Wild West future. We will certainly spread the word. Our group of 8 had a ball! Thank you!
What a fantastic place. Great set up, delicious food and what a great couple, Rosita & Pancho, just amazing. Thanks Rosita and Pancho, Dusty, Ruby and everyone else for looking after all 18 of us. What an experience! We enjoyed ourselves. Thank you for doing everything you possibly could and beyond to give us the best Wild West experience. It was good to spend time with you as well. Thanks Maureen for all the help you gave me in organising this. I love my room and had lots of fun. You are truly wonderful.
