We stayed there for 1 night only and wished we would have stayed longer. The place is just wonderful. Lovely location, directly at the bottom of the mountain. It's the ideal place to relax and enjoy the surroundings and to have some days of a "slow life" where no work stress can bug you. The rooms are nice and completely... More

We were on the dinner, bed and breakfast deal for $340. While the hotel lacked that certain Mountain House factor, the food was out of this world. You are eating 5 star meals fit for any fine dining establishment. While the surrounding and service are maybe not high end, I actually like it as it is. The service is very... More

Mountain House treated our Future Blacksticks U21 Women to a beautiful meal after our first game of a series of 6 tests against India, in Stratford. The meals were delicious and seamlessly delivered to our table of 25! We were warmed by the wood fire, and enjoyed the views over the native bush, though the sadly mountain was covered in... More

my friend and I came here for lunch on Sunday and it was lovely. The service was excellent and the food was really good and reasonably priced. It was very comfortable and scenic and can't wait to take my friend when he comes from the UK in December!

This business had a change of ownership a year or so ago and is very pleasant with pleasing decor huge fire and a good menu. Such a shame that the building was situated to the road as opposed to looking up at the mountain. It is only a short and easy drive from Stratford and is well worth the diversion... More

On a gorgeous Taranaki day my husband & I took our daughter & grand daughter who were visiting from out of town, up Mt.Egmont/Taranaki. We stopped at The Stratford Mountain House for lunch. The staff were extremely welcoming & friendly and the service was superb. The lunch menu was quite extensive & included a special menu for young children. Our... More

We stayed two nights while exploring the local walks and climbing Mt Taranaki. Excellent accommodation with clean, spacious rooms, very comfy bed and a spa bath which was appreciated after our summit climb! Lovely lounge/bar area, great food and very helpful, friendly staff and owners - we thoroughly enjoyed our stay and highly recommend Stratford Mountain House. Very well-priced too... More
