The hotel is dated but clean. No frills as others have stated. But the grounds and the view of the crater all night and morning are exceptional. That is what you are paying for. The walls are VERY thin. The staff was excellent. The breakfast was very very good - unexpected surprise. It was also wonderful to be able to... More

Average food, ok for lunch. Fish and chips were better than the pizza. Lot of French fries to show value??!!! Service was spotty and slow for a not so crowded hour. The views were phenomenal from a window table over looking the crater.

This hotel has a great location inside the park, very close to the park entrance and visitors centre. The view from the hotel is stunning, overlooking the active volcano. A short drive away, and accessible all night, is the museum where you get an even better view of the lava. The hotel itself is nice. The rooms are very spacious,... More

We were on the island for 2 weeks and decided to stay at Volcano House overnight. We did the 8 mile walk to see lava going into the ocean. The walk was grueling and we looked forward to a hot shower after the hike. Hotel had no hot water. No mugs in the room for morning coffee. We were too... More

Since my hubby is a geologist, there was no question we had to stay at Volcano House during our trip to the park. Once the sun went down, we were mesmerized by the view of the volcano glow from the patio of the hotel. The location made it very easy for a late night trip to Jagger for another view.... More

This is so amazing...it's a great place if you are coming to the volcano. We were greeted with mimosas and our room opened up with a patio with the best view ever. Amazing! It was definietly cool there (we stayed Sept. 4-6). Dinner was good but the menu was the same in both the bar and restaurant and had a... More

Most expensive cheap room. The rating would be a 2 for the room. the walls and floors are paper thin. You can hear people talk like they were in your room. The view of crater is spectacular. Room 34 there is a tree right in the middle of the plume. Just say you are there for the view. Must go... More

We are used to staying at 4-5 star hotels and we were aware that this hotel wasn't that. The hotel was quaint, no elevator and had some beautiful views. I would say the rooms were about a 3 star, however the location is what you pay for. The restaurant had some decent food and it was really nice to relax... More

The highlight of the room was being able to see the glow of the lava from our room at night. The room itself was beautiful with a walk-in closet which had a room safe large enough for a laptop and tablets. Bed was comfortable. We had the breakfast buffet each morning which was an excellent value for $15 each. Definitely... More
