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 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!

Well, this Hotel, located at the bottom of Mount Taranaki and within the Egmont National Park is something special. You get quietness, loneliness of some kind and the possibility to really come to a rest. Waking up seeing the Mountain in the sunlight is a view to remember. Don't forget to have dinner at the hotel restaurant. You won't regret it. Highly recommended

We travelled as 2 couples taking advantage of the Mountain House special offer of 2 course dinner, accommodation and breakfast the following morning for $325 per couple. The unit we stayed in was immaculately presented, and even at the end of winter, was warm and inviting....exactly like the welcome we were given when we checked in. The meals are large and of a very high standard, so I would recommend sharing a starter and likewise a dessert as coupled with a main course this was more than sufficient. They have a decent wine/beverage selection in their lounge/bar/restaurant which has a delightful ambience with a big open fire. While Manager/operator Rod and his wife were away this particular weekend, it was fantastic to see how well the lodge operated in their absence. 10 out of 10 team!!
