We had a very comfortable stay at Station Lodge. Highlights of the experience include: - Plenty of space to chill out - Exceptionally neat facilities - All the tools and resources available for cooking and storing food - Friendly staff that helped organise shuttles - Being able to borrow bikes to go into town

Stayed in the luxury apartments at Station Lodge for 3 nights and was thoroughly impressed. Great service at reception with lots of information regarding the Tongariro crossing and Ruapehu summit. The spa pool was very comforting after long days of hiking. Would definitely recommend.

Friendly, clean, well-serviced, and attentive, hard-working and helpful hosts. Owners Darren and Jane are always approachable, and fonts of knowledge on the area and the many adventures to be had at this time of year. The cherry on top? The mountain-bike station (also run by D and J). A range of top bikes serviced and cleaned daily by a qualified... More

One of the two best backpackers I've stayed at in New Zealand. A relaxing, homely base for walking and mountain biking (with the owners supplying shuttle transport and top quality mountain bikes). Big verandah with Mt Ruapehu view, the pizza oven fired up for guests, cosy lounge and big, clean, well equipped country-style kitchen - also with mountain view. Two... More

We stayed in one of the chalets and loved it. We were two couples from Wgtn and Akld and found both rooms clean and modern. The spa tub in our private courtyard with mountain view was superb. Comfy couches and good kitchen. The railway is opposite, with an quant old style station house, and funnily enough we really enjoyed the... More
