We spend 3 nights at the adventure lodge in Tongariro in the National Park Village. We are a couple with a 10 years old daughter. We had a very pleasurable experience staying at this lodge. The booking process was a bit complicated as the Web site was hacked and we could not receive the information and communication via email. Since... More

This was our second stay. The first for the Tongariro Crossing and this time for the T42. Lorraine and Ron offer a great place to base yourself for all Central Pateau activities and the spa is an added bonus after a long out. Their home cooked breakfast is a nice start to the day, and it was nice to come... More

It was excellent value with the cooked breakfast on the morning of our walk, packed lunch and a great dinner to top off the day. Ron and Lorraine were great hosts who looked after all of our needs. We would stay there again if travelling near... More

The Freedom Package with Ron and Lorraine at Adventure Lodge and Motel is absolutely perfect for walking the Tongariro Crossing. Everything is taken care of. No food to organise, a packed lunch provided, transport to and from the track and great meals back at the Lodge ( 2 breakfasts and 1 dinner included) Add white water kayaking next day with... More

As we sat in the SPA after tackling the Tongariro Alpin Crossing, my husband said, "We made the right choice staying here." You know I loved hearing that, since the choice had been mine. We got the package that included 2 nights, 2 breakfast, packed lunch, transportation to the trail head and the post hike dinner. All the food was... More

Our group of 3 had a great stay here. We were down to do the Tongariro crossing, Ron whipped up a great breakfast on the day we did the trip, they also provided us with a packed lunch and transport to and from the track. A top notch steak for dinner finished the day off nicely. Both Ron and Lorraine... More

Lorraine and Ron were wonderful. We signed up for a package which included 2 nights lodging, transport to the Alpine Crossing and a river rafting trip. Upon arrival, Lorraine said she wanted to wait until later in the evening (after she heard the weather report) to let us know if we should do the Crossing the following day or wait... More

My wife and I stayed with Ron and Lorraine the night before and the night after we hiked the Tongariro Crossing. You have the option to buy a crossing package that will include transportation, breakfast, lunch and a fantastic steak dinner. They even reserved a 1/2 hour for us in the hot tub to soak our weary bodies!! Ron and... More
