Always wondered why the Tavern has that name, stopped off there last week and found out! Wonderful place. When I was there it was during a spectacular thunder storm, great to sit in the tub with the cold rain on my shoulders and the lightening flashing in the clouds. If you want clean and man made go to Waikite, if you want naked (optional), natural, basic and free then this is for you. DOC I’m sure you have better things to do, let the locals care for their historic pools for ever!
