After reading various reviews on Trip Advisor, I decided to book at Tongariro Crossing Lodge. I am very glad that I did as Colin was friendly and went the extra mile to make our stay lovely. I don't often write reviews but would love to send more people his way.
We stayed in the Whakapapa Room which was pleasantly decorated with a Victorian theme (and a brilliant mohair blanket). The heaters meant that we were able to keep the bedroom + sitting room toasty despite the Antarctic front moving up. Colin had already turned the heaters on to pre-warm it for us. He also opened up the adjoining unit so that we could use the kitchen (as there was noone staying there).
We had a really lovely stay and would definitely go back.
