We stayed in an apartment with our own living room, bedroom, bathroom and kitchen. Very warm welcome and excellent hospitality from the very knowledgeable host. He helped us finding the best way to spend our day and to walk the Tongariro alpine crossing which is amazing in itself. The lodge is part of a 100-year old building so if you... More

The owners of tongariro crossing lodge are nice and helpful and even gave us the use of another room for us to cook food. The rooms, however, are a bit of a rip off if I'm honest. We paid the equivalent if £80 for an 'executive' suite which, quite frankly, was a joke! It was like something out of the... More

This lodge was not well kept, The owners wife was actually very rude to us, The heater in the room was not working, the room itself was very dusty and dirty... More

I am concerned that you may have posted the review to us when it relates to another lodge/hotel in area. Could you please check to ensure this is correct as this has... More

We stay here when doing business in Taumarunui as the service and value is so much better. Nice suites and very friendly and good service from the owner. Breakfast is very good with a wide range of choices. When I have been in a rush the owner has come out to me when I am in huge car to give... More

What an amazing adventure for both me and the children We set off at 7am and it took us 7 hours. The hike was reasonably challenging for me at my age, but the children had no problems and had lots of fun on the way. Lots of steps up and down, with views that have to be experienced. The photo's... More

I stayed there on my own in January. It is perfectly situated in National Park. Many restaurants around and only a short drive to Tongariro to do the Crossing. I was traveling on my own and I stayed in the "Executive Suite". It was very comfortable and clean. There was a TV in the bedroom as well as one in... More

We stayed here for two nights and loved it. We had a self contained unit that made it easy for the three of us to deal with gear for the Tongariro Crossing one of the days. The garden is beautiful and my nephew really loved the little swing outside the door. The owners could not have been more helpful or... More

We stumbled across this place by accident, we were lucky!! The owner is a great guy, very chatty, and knowledgeable. He had lots of tips about the crossing, and the local area. He also had a great recommendation on a place for dinner & a place for drinks! We would go back with out a shadow of a doubt

Being our first trip to New Zealand (November, 2011), visiting the volcanic plateau was a must. My research (and trip advisor reviews) led to my making reservations at the Tongariro Crossing Lodge. What a perfect decision! Our trip to the plateau from Wellington began with a delightful train ride to National Park. Upon arrival, we were greeted at the station... More
