Beautiful scenery,right on the waters edge. Great for those keen trout fishermen. Close to mountains, skiing, mountain treks, bush walks, water rafting and many other outdoor activities. Lodge facilities very clean, tidy, modern decor and well equipped. Large grounds well kept. Staff courteous and assist with all enquiries. The meals are delicious. Excellent venue for our conference. We thoroughly enjoyed... More

We highly recommend Tongariro lodge. We had a lovely stay and found the lodge very professionally run. We couldn't have been more happy with the large spacious room and fantastic food. A talented chef. Thanks so much to and the awesome team!

We had a weekend stay at Tongariro Lodge over the school holidays, with three adults and two boys (11) and (8). The weather was dreadful but we had a terrific couple of days nonetheless. We stayed in three bedroom villa 19. It was spacious, clean and warm. Super lounge area with comfortable seating, log burner and large TV, leading to... More

We stayed two nights in the Tongariro Lodge as we were planning to do the 20km Tongario crossing. The lodge set up our transport to and from which worked very efficiently (thanks Brandon) and the hike was very beautiful. The accommodations are small clean villas close to the water. I would really recommend this place if you are keen on... More

We checked into the Tongariro Lodge and were please with our room. After a long journey we were too tired to look for a nearby restaurant so we decided to eat at the lodge. To our surprise it was one of the best meals we had in New Zealand...an award winner with both food and service. Too bad we are... More

We stayed in a 2 bed villa for 4 nights during our travels in New Zealand on varying budgets - this was our high end of the budget treat at the end of our trip and we enjoyed every minute of our stay. We were very pleased with the look and feel of the lodge overall, and our villa (no... More

Agree with other comments re tv, rooms etc. The world chalet is used very loosely but they have good views. Not being there for fishing did not see establishment in it's true form. However friendly staff and wonderful food.

Had heard a lot about the lodge, lovely spot and if you are into fishing the perfect place. It is a bit far out if you are planning on touristy stuff at Taupo. For the price the cabin we stayed in was disappointing, very surprised that there was no fridge and room and bathroom needed a serious update and make... More

We wanted a quite 'seek away' before Christmas and we certainly found exactly what we were looking for. Great fishing right on hand, fabulous bush walks, a lovely lunch at a winery literally up the road and stunning weather. The staff were so friendly and helpful. Nothing was too much trouble. Other guests were from overseas and interested in the... More
