3 of 5 stars Reviewed yesterday NEW

I stayed 2 nights and was given a great rate by the Manager. The lodge rooms are adequately furnished, perhaps in need of an update in decor but very clean and comfortable. Rooms were abit noisy but maybe that was a good thing as I didn't have an alarm clock and was woken up by other travellers preparing for the... More

We spent two nights here before driving back to Auckland to come home. Ron and Lorraine were perfect hosts and the accommodation was spotless and very comfortable. Lorraine even offered to dispose of our surplus food and cleaning things that we couldn't take back to UK. Made a very memorable end to our holiday.

Well-presented accommodation. Clean, modern, and no-frills for the type of traveler looking for adventure at Tongariro. The room is spacious, with a sink, microwave, and some dishes for self-catering. Beds were good, room was warm. We were going to do the alpine crossing, but had to cancel our booking for transport due to minor health issues. No problem! The fully... More

We booked the Tongariro Freedom Package plus an extra night. Jason checked us in and took great care of us while we were there. The room was clean and comfortable. The food and service were superb. Jason even recommended 3 NZ movies to watch in our room which gave us a better insight to the Maori culture. The day we... More

We stayed here using the Tongariro 2 night inclusive package and it was great. Breakfast was good and filling, a tasty packed lunch and transport to and from the crossing points. Jason and Lorraine are great hosts and made sure that were were properly dressed for what turned out to be a very windy & snowy walk. Jason also made... More

We had a very good 2 night stay here at the motel. The owners were really accommodating and friendly with us when we arrived and throughout our stay. The location is fantastic as we were doing the Tongariro crossing with transport from them... I would definitely recommend this place if you are wanting a place to stay for the crossing!

A good choice to stay in the lodge - the owners were friendly and helpful. Advised us to wait a day for the bad weather to pass and I'm sure glad we did. Would definitely recommend anyone who intends to do the tongariro alpine crossing to stay here. No need to worry about organising your own shuttle as the lodge... More

Our Tongariro visit was a last minute add-on and the staff at Adventure Lodge & Motel were greatly helpful and accommodating. We only had one night to stay on our journey through New Zealand - Lorraine set us up with walks to take our first evening there, as well as facilitating our transport and Tongariro excursion the following day. Lorraine... More

We stayed there for 2 nights and it is a lovely lodge with very friendly staff. We forgot to take our rain jackets and the manager Lorraine very generously lent us a couple of jackets. The food is excellent as well. Overall it was a great experience! I highly recommend this place if you plan to do the Tongariro crossing.

The motel is comfortable and the location is just right. Lorraine was fantastic and was perfectly understading when I checked out early due to bad weather. After comparing it with the places my friends stayed, this was the right choice.
