A great place to stay if you are considering doing the Tongariro Alpine Crossing. The staff was very friendly and helpful. We booked the two day package that included the transfer to the trail and a packed lunch. They even called over to the rental place for us to make sure they stayed open long enough for us to rent...

We booked 2 nights for the skiing weekend. The place is very clean and the furniture is new. The kitchen is well equipped. The food in the restaurant is also very tasty, we dined there twice. The service is also very good. After we arrived, the window in the bathroom was not closing properly and the lady from the reception...

We stayed here a few years ago and thoroughly enjoyed our stay here. I made a mistake in booking this time around and we ended up at a different place! But we just had to come back to the restaurant as the first time we ate here left such an impression on my mind. We were not disappointed. The service...

This was my second visit to National Park Village. The Park Hotel was a no brainer - value for money; the staff were welcoming and ready to help with any requests. My room was clean and a very comfortable bed...just the thing after doing The Crossing.

When the Park first opened it settled itself as an upmarket backpackers but has since moved further upmarket. It offers nice rooms, a nice bar, decent food at a good price point. The location is also perfect for a range of outdoor activities. Staff are super friendly. The TV in the room didn't have sky TV so I couldn't watch...

Park Hotel was friendly and welcoming and recently renovated. The staff were very friendly and professional and check-in was easy. The busy restaurant served reasonably nice food and there was a big fireplace, a view of the mountains, and a family atmosphere. It was nice and quiet overnight, and the bed was very comfortable and firm. There was a hairdryer...
