As a treat for Father's Day, and a break before our son has open heart surgery we headed down to the lodge for a few days with some friends. Unfortunately they had to pull out so we were left enjoying a 3 bedroom lodge with just the four of us (2 adults and two children under 2). The staff were... More

Stayed here for 2 nights as part of hubby's 40th birthday celebration. The lodge had organised all the activities for me and the staff (Talia) went above and beyond making contact with the tour companies etc. The room was comfortable and clean. Wifi included. The food is also worth a mention. The cooked breakfasts were just delicious and the dinner... More

This is a Perfect place to stumble across, mountain closed due to high winds and torrential rain so no snowboarding, so we sat by the fire with a nice bottle of red, great atmosphere would be a great setting for a Stephen King movie. Staff were friendly and accomodating

We really enjoyed our night away at Tongariro Lodge. Lovely surroundings for a crisp walk, a five minute jaunt to some old school hot pools and back at the Lodge for wines and an absolutely wonderful dinner at the restaurant ☺

The chalet was a very basic cabin with thin dividing walls, inadequate heating and NO WIFI. It offered nothing in the way of little luxuries such as bath robes or above basic toiletries. However the cabin was clean and... More
