Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

My wife and I were traveling from Auckland to Wellington by car and stayed at the Stratford Mountain House Hotel. By the way, it's not really in Stratford. It's about 15km from Stratford. It's actually in Egmont NP...which is why we wanted to stay there.
Well anyway, our room was very nice. It is fully furnished with a refrigerator, coffee/tea service, glassware, etc. The bathroom is well done and the shower has a hand-held nozzle with plenty of water pressure. The king-sized bed is comfortable. The room is clean, quiet and convenient to everything.
The lobby is nice and comfortable. The staff are extremely helpful and professional.
We would highly recommend the Mountain House for a stay in Egmont.

We stayed for two nights on Labour Day weekend. It is situated on Mount Taranaki. Beautiful and peaceful environment. There are a few walking tracks nearby. Staff were kind and attentive. We stayed in the family room. Nice decor and the room was spacious. A spa bath was in the bathroom, so my little girl enjoyed her bubble bath.
We had dinner and breakfast at the restaurant. Food was very delicious and well presented. We will come back to stay when we visit Taranaki next time.

OMG what an amazing place for my birthday surprise.
So the weather may have been a bit moist, who cares when you have such a beautiful calming place to warm by the fire and have a quiet drink.
Dinner was faultless. Being vegetarian narrowed our options but the Vege Curry was simply sublime.
Desert was a perfect finish to the meal leaving us satisfied and we'll nourished.
We took an overnight stay package which included breakfast which we opted for Eggs Benedict, simple but again perfectly balanced and filling.
Coffee and hot chocolate were made perfectly.
All of the staff interaction was professional but relaxed and courteous.
The room we had was comfortable, warm and the spa bath was a bonus surprise.

Well done Pete an the team. Stratford Mountain House is an all round winner for accomodation and dining.

We were gifted a voucher for a stay at Stratford Mountain House, and what a gift it was. From the moment we arrived until the moment we (sadly) left, we were treated like royalty. Our room was excellent, and the small problem with the toilet cistern was quickly dealt with. Peter, Alie and their staff were efficient, friendly and courteous, without being overbearing.

Dinner was an absolute treat, with both meals cooked to perfection and beautifully presented. Likewise, breakfast this morning was generous, tasty and nourishing, with freshly house-baked bread an added treat.

The weather wasn't great, but we enjoyed just sitting by a fire in the lounge reading and relaxing. We will most definitely return!

We stayed here for 2 nights, in peace and quiet, surrounded by amazing scenery. The rooms are so comfortable, warm and have everything you need. The manager, Peter & Alie are so accommodating, helpful and with great knowledge of the area. Dinners were a highlight, with great choices, great presentation and delicious food. Service was outstanding and we would highly recommend a stay here. Mt Taranaki even put on her best summer performance, so we were truly blessed. Thanks to all.

Stayed here for 4 nights from the 6th to the 10th of January at the beginning of our staycasion in NZ. What a wonderful place to stay, comfortable rooms, amazing hosts Peter & Aile, along with their great team of staff.

The restaurant however is the jewel in the crown. The food is exceptional quality and presented as well as in any top class fine dining establishment. We have been fortunate to have visited some of the finest restaurants around the world and the food and the presentation here is as good as many of them.

It was an awesome experience and we would highly recommend this place as the only place to stay when in the Taranaki area.

We had a 3 night stay, Peter and Ali were the perfect hosts.
Everything from our room, the location, the staff and the food and wine was brilliant. Talking about the food, we sampled a variety of menu choices and all were superb. My own favourite was the World’s best soup - Roasted Vegetable and Lamb which always simply to die for.
We cannot recommend a stay here highly enough!!

Thank you Peter and Ali and all of your staff 😊

We stayed for one night in late October 2021 and what an excellent stay it was and we're looking forward to coming back sometime early next year. We went for the dinner, bed and breakfast package.

Nice room, very friendly and welcoming staff but we have to say that the "highlight" for us was the food - dinner was exceptionally good - good choices; great quality and presentation ("largish" portions) and great value. Breakfast was equally as good.

Keep up the good work!

What a find! Amazing spot in the heart of the National Park. The room was very clean and comfy. The dinner was divine - beautifully cooked food. We both had blue cod and veg which was perfectly cooked. The staff were really friendly and helpful. Great place for lunch too
