We stayed two nights early May for an event. Our unit was quiet and spacious, the heater was excellent and we really appreciated the breakfast delivered on the first morning. Late check-in process was seamless. We've previously stayed at a large nearby hotel and prefer the Adventure Lodge.

A wonderful stay for the big event. Friendly, helpful smiling service with a clean warm room to relax in. Our second stay and we would stay at Adventure Lodge again (in fact we're planning that already).

Excellent clean facilities and communal space which enable two families to stay together on our recent trip to National Park. The use of the kitchen which had everything you needed for cooking ie utensils, pots and pans. Bedding was of good clean standard too. The breakfast egg & bacon muffins were good even though one of our members of our group was a vegetarian which meant an extra one for someone.

We booked a cheeky two night stay at short notice and it was a dream. Even before our arrival our room had the heater and lights on, making it cosy and welcoming. We got an upgrade which only added to the warm welcome we received. Our hosts Gill and John are extremely friendly, knowledgable, informative and charismatic. All our questions were answered and the Tongariro Alpine Crossing preparation set. We had a personal shuttle service both at the start and the end of the Crossing with the added bonus of a much needed energy boosting free breakfast to take with us. John's pre hike education and local history is very informative. The Adventure Lodge is the perfect place as a base for the local activities with plenty of choice for local eating establishments, including self catering facilities within the Lodge itself. The icing on the cake for us was the limb soothing and body ache busting hot pool spa after the crossing. We can't recommend enough the warm and quintessential kiwi hospitality of both Gill, John and the staff. Cheers, Tim, Louise and James

I stayed here with my son before and after walking the Tongariro Northern Circuit. Everyone was incredibly friendly and helpful, and we had a great breakfast to start the day! The lodge rooms clean and tidy with plenty of room, and the kitchen had everything we needed.
