“Every type of room you can imagine plus good commual areas”
Reviewed March 18, 2008

90 NZ$ for an en suite double room. Good room and good communal facilities - a small spa pool, a large well equipped kitchen.

National Park is a very good location for Tongariro and the Tongariro Crossing is probably the best day walk in the world. It is certainly the best day walk we have ever done.

The Park's restaurant is limited and dull, try the one at the Station which is very good, for lunch, dinner or just a coffee.

We stayed at The Park - Travellers Lodge for two nights in Feb. hoping to complete the Tongariro Crossing but unfortunately the weather was so bad the walk was closed by the DOC. The Park is a great place to stay with very nice communal areas. The food looked good but we didn't sample it as we had booked a small apartment with a kitchenette. Bar area with an open fire was very nice and cosy. Drinks were priced very reasonably but beware the bar closes very early - 21.00 the night we were there ! Our loft apartment wasn't quite as described on the website - ie. only one chair instead of the three promised but otherwise a good standard. The Tongariro Crossing transportation at $30 pp seems very expensive but it is the going rate ! The Park claims to be a hostel with the services of a motel or hotel but I would probably just say that it is a very good hostel.

  • Liked — Friendly staff, Great communal areas and Great location
  • Disliked — Thin walls and bar closed too early !
