This lodge is located on Mount Taranaki. About a 10 minute drive from Stratford, it is surrounded by native bush. The room was really warm and clean, and the bathroom was well fitted. The resturant had a delicious menu but we only ate breakfast - dinners being about $40 for a main per person. However breakfast was delicious so I'm... More

This was a pleasant surprise for our family. The staff were so friendly and efficient the moment we arrived. We stayed in the two far cabins in August and we were nice and warm. The beds were large and very comfortable and the spa bath was a nice luxury. The cabins are not large but they are cosy and modern... More

As everyone has commented, a great postion on the slopes with easy access to bush walks (and we found good information in our room on these). We were given one of the two very back rooms away from the main complex so great for privacy but not so good when it came to going for dinner in the pitch black... More

We spent our last night in New Zealand here and regret not staying longer. The location is just superb with the lush bush surrounding you and majestic Mount Taranaki towering above. There are a number of bush walks that take you into another world. Our room was very warm and inviting and the spa bath just what we needed after... More

The accomodation is very nice, have stayed just the one night. Surrounded by bush & birds, very peaceful. Would definately recommend this place & we... More

Fabulous location and the room we had was sheer luxury -5star fittings and finish in large bedroom and bathroom. Three of us shared and there was plenty of room. Dinner was very good. Definitely worth the detour to get close to the mountain.

Thank you so much to make this so special and wonderful. Our family really enjoyed the moment we stepped in. It was the first time for our son and his beautiful fiance at the Mountain house. There is no better location for a very special moment like that. After a fabulous meal and so well looked after us, a special... More

Found this place totally by accident on the way up to the Taranaki Volcano, initially didn't realise how close I was to the base of the mountain due to low cloud. I was allocated a room in the annex about a hundred metres from the main hotel block, so nice and quite, with (when the cloud lifted) wonderful views of... More
