Had a wonderful stay, the hosts were very accommodating, was a last minute decision to do the crossing because of the perfect weather and got the package deal which made our trip so easy, just need to turn up. We totally recommend and would do it again in a heartbeat

Our family of three, 2 adults and a 17 yr old stayed here for two nights in the end of March 2022. The host was very helpful with everything we needed, moved us into an excellent family room with plenty of space and helped us organise transport to do the tongariro crossing, unfortunately the wind came up too much so we will have to complete another day... we will be back. Thanks for your great hospitality!

Great location, lovely people and clean spacious rooms. We arrived after check in time but still were greeted and assisted with our check in. We had a room away from our friends rooms but the lodge staff were great in re-arranging our room so we could be next-door. Wonderful service and if you're doing the crossing you get collected from the door the next morning. Highly recommend this place

Super clean and cute little house, walking distance from the pub. Awesome location, amazing communication from the host and even the chance to book the spa after our Tongariro Crossing walk. We even booked our shuttle pick up and drop-off through the host, which made the experience super easy. We would definitely recommend this stay for your family trip away!

Accommodation was clean, well appointed and well maintained - spa was lovely! Shuttle arrangements to Tongariro Crossing were well organised and efficient. John & Gillian were fantastic hosts and when we had a bit of trouble with the TV, couldn’t have been more helpful. Fully recommend this spot no matter your reason for being in the National Park, great accommodation, lovely hosts.

Great location for Tongariro Crossing, or heading to Whakapapa Village. We were upgraded to a great family suite. We really enjoyed the spa and having breakfast delivered to our room was the icing on the cake! Fantastic.

The owner John was a great chap, very easy to deal with. (Especially re Covid and our need to change dates). Good knowledge of area, and great safety instructions. Flexible pick-up time despite our slow decent from the mountain. Great location, with an excellent pub for meals etc within easy walking distance. Even laid on the most perfect weather for our crossing.
