Very cosy lodge with extremely comfortable beds. Breakfast was good value and tasty. Great value packages offered if walking the Tongariro Alpine Crossing. Gillian and John (owners) are both really friendly, welcoming and helpful. Highly recommend.

Couldn’t fault this choice. Food for breakfast, very large packed lunch plus water, dinner was great. Nice room. Shuttle to start/finish of walk. Ideal location. Would highly recommend this as a place to stay.

Ecellent facilities and very friendly staff. Room was spacious and comfortable with everything I needed. Additional kitchen facilities are available, if required. The spa pool was a welcome treat, after a long day on the feet.
