Thank you so much Lorraine and Jason for your awesome hospitality whilst my brother, son and I stayed with you. It's so nice to have all the mod cons in such an isolated place when enjoying a ski holiday, we'll be back again soon this season and next year!!

We stayed four nights and really enjoyed our time at Adventure Lodge. Jason was welcoming and very willing to help us plan our skiing, hiking and mountain biking. He also cooks a mean steak. The motel units are clean and comfortable and most importantly warm. The cable TV and spa pool were also welcome extras for relaxing after a day...

A very clean and welcoming place to stay. We booked the b&b package and the breakfast was not only massive, but yummy and well thought out. The owner was really nice and took time to explain the area to us and suggest places to see. We were due to trek the crossing on the Saturday but this was postponed to...

When we arrived we were the only ones on site that night and Jason took care of us. He got us set up for where to eat dinner and what we would need for the hike the next morning. He dropped us off and picked us up from our alpine crossing trek. The breakfasts he made were great and filling....

We had originally booked a 2 night Tongariro Crossing package with the Adventure Lodge & Motel. However, when we arrived the crossing was too windy and snowy to hike, so the owner's did not hold us to our package and instead allowed us to opt for a 1 night B&B special. This allowed us to move on to our next...

We went there with a reasonably priced package that included two nights, the drive to the beginning and from the end of the Tongariro Alpine Crossing, a lunch pack and the evening meal on the day of the crossing, & the breakfasts. Everything was smoothly organized, with good explanations and advice from the manager, who is nice (and handed us...

We spent two nights at the Adventure Lodge & Motel and had a good experience overall. The lady at the reception was to the point, but very helpful in confirming our tour with the Adrift Outdoor Guided Adventures company and relaying other information to us. She generously helped us out of a pinch with our laundry and things turned pretty...

We were staying with our son and initially planned to stay and do the whole Freedom package, but the weather was looking doubtful for our planned days, so we decided to take a risk and do it in a day as the weather was looking fantastic the following day (about a 3 hr drive from sons place). Booked our shuttle...

We had a wonderful experience staying at the Adventure Lodge. We did the Tongariro Freedom Package, which is a great deal if you're planning to do the crossing.
