Stayed for two nights when we did the Tongariro Crossing. Really liked the price of the package we booked, which included two breakfasts, a packed lunch for the hike, and transport to and from the mountain. Excellent service from friendly staff made us feel very welcome (that is when booking, in the pub and restaurant, at the front desk, and... More

We stayed at the Park Hotel for one night in June. We were upgraded from a Standard room to a Deluxe. The presentation of the room was beautiful and our first impression was very good! However, it didn't quite live up to those expectations. The bed and pillows were quite uncomfortable, you can barely hear the television and the bathroom,... More

Thank you very much for taking the time to review your stay. We appreciate your comments regarding your room upgrade- the difference between the standard and premium rooms is the size of the ensuite (the premium rooms has a larger one). Regardless of this, we are glad that you enjoyed your stay overall and found our staff friendly. Thanks again:) More

Stayed for 1 night in a dorm room and found it to be good value. The room itself was comfortable and spotlessly clean. The hot tubs were a welcome addition after being out walking for the day. Food in the restaurant was tasty, and service was friendly.

We stayed here for a weekend ski trip and would definitely recommend this hotel. Our room was small but comfortable, clean and upon arrival we found that our heater had already been turned on so our room was nice and warm. My only complaint would be that service the next morning at breakfast was not that great. They had a... More

We stayed for two nights during an unseasonably cold and wet November. Although it was dreary outside, the staff made our stay as enjoyable as possible. We learned about rugby from Sami the bartender while watching the Kiwis beat the Kangaroos and got timely drop offs and pickups for hikes between rain showers. The rooms are small and the lofts...

Stayed in a six bed dorm for three nights. Luckily there were only four of us in there as there was not much space for all our stuff. The room had an ensuite which was very cramped but useful to have. We got a deal of three nights for the price of two making it the best value room I've... More

Though the decor is a little battered and jaded our room was clean & functional & it was a great touch that the radiator was already on & the room warm on arrival. The food was basic but well done with good portion sizes & enough choices for a short stay. What really impressed me though was the staff. Everyone... More

Stayed here for three nights for a wedding--which took place at the Lodge. The first two nights we stayed with other guests. The rooms were okay--we got a discount for staying three nights and as part of the wedding party, but I thought the value wasn't super great. Rooms could use an upgrade. The location comes into play here, since... More

Location to Whakapapa perfect and family loft room made trip more affordable as self catering. Cafe food (had one evening)not as good this trip as previous year but service very friendly. Competitive rates and value for money - would stay again.
