We checked into Distinction hotel. Package deal was $220 for 2 pax inclusive of hotel stay in a standard room plus entrance to Hobitton.
Early next morning, the first stop of the day was Te Puia Geo Thermal & Maori Arts & Cultures Centre. The place to see hot geysers. We could smell sulphur or 'rotten eggs' in the air as we near the place.
