Situated on the main road a few kilometres from the pick up point for the Tongariro alpine crossing this site should be ideal. Alas we arrived yesterday at 7.50pm, sunny evening plenty of activity and space on the site and were refused entry as gates close at 7.30pm. I apologised for not making their time and explained I did not... More

Been to this place in December 2015 and i was very disappointed in what I got for what I paid. They had a very small kitchen with nothing more then stoves and fridge. No proper pan, Cutler's etc. They had only 2 stove tops with 4 burners out of which few where not working and there were so many people... More

Great place to stay when doing the Tongariro Alpine Crossing. About 20 mins from town to get your supplies you need. Keep in mind it's a busy holiday park so it's a busy kitchen at dinner and breakfast times. The owners are great and they have friendly pets.

Lovely campground with good facilities - take insect repellant! We had terrible reception service though, massive confusion over our booking and she couldn't give us information about the Tongariro Crossing as she had never done it (basically there is no other reason to go to this place). We had issues with our shuttle being in limbo but we couldn't pay... More

The accommodation here is really basic. You have to bring your own sleeping gear, which they tell you about but it's kind of surprise because we paid more here at this place than others that gave us a lot more for our buck including sleeping stuff. The room wasn't very clean, the bathrooms were closed from 10-1, which is kind... More

We arrived on spec at about 18.50 to find the office apparently closed. In fact, on knocking, it turned out a helpful lady was still there and able to book us in for 2 nights and sort us out for the shuttlebuses for the Tongariro Crossing the next day. (The man we met the next day was much more morose.)... More

We came concerned about the negative reviews, but this was the only option for what we wanted to do the Alpine Crossing. We received a warm and friendly welcome, loved the facilities and the location, and had a great time. Yes, rooms are a bit tired, but did the perfect job for us to do the tongariro and enjoy a...

Cancelled our stay before arrival!! Booking.com app information did not state that linen was not provided. It was not until I had the confirmation email that I noticed I would be charged to use linen (ridiculous demand when providing accommodation). Called up to get some more clarity and received nothing but aggressiveness and rudeness from both the male and female... More

I recently stayed at THP with my three friends to do the Tongariro crossing. All of us are wholesale travel consultants for a major travel agency with over 100 stores in New Zealand and NONE of us will ever book our clients into THP after our experience there. Accommodation is basic- you must bring your own sheets, blankets, plates, bowls,... More
