We stayed here before & after our Forgotten World trip in golf carts on the rail and found it charming. It was a nunnery and has been converted to accomodation. The chapel has been turned into the lounge which doubles as a place to have our delightful continental breakfast. As we had taken over all the available rooms there was... More

Stayed 1 night and room was comfortable. Sink in room and small TV screen to catch up on news. Only a few clients so no waiting for share facilities of 1 toilet,1 shower and 1 bathroom which had toilet, bath and a shower. Would be cold showering in winter there. Kitchen is very small if you are cooking. Combined lounge/... More

Thanks for your feedback, it does sound like you prefer motel type accommodation so maybe shared lodges are something you need to avoid, naturally you will pay accordingly but that is OK everyone is different. More

I loved this place, the hosts are friendly and nothing is too much trouble for them. All rooms are clean with quality furniture i.e. this is the bedrooms, kitchen, lounge and bathrooms.

We have stayed here three times now, and will again. The owners make you very welcome, the rooms are very clean and tidy, and its very central to all of Taranaki. The public rooms are warm and cosy, and the owners are very knowledgable about the history of the lodge and the surrounding areas. Well worth a visit.

My husband and I recently stayed in the cottage owned by the same couple who run the lodge. It was beautiful and well equipped. The Digbys are super people and run a lovely establishment. They also have a fast wi-fi connection for free. They provide a great value and the location is perfect, close to parks and downtown. Don't miss... More

Owned by a lovely couple with a genuine passion for the great outdoors. Super rooms, really clean and lots of public space in lounge/dinning area. Awesome views from bedrooms, if Mt Taranaki appears from the clouds!!!
