This is a very dull space with limited food options. To find it from within the Chateau involves a convoluted journey into the bowels of the building. We were looking for lunch after a morning of walking in the rain. The bowl of soup was...More

We popped in here for lunch and found it was a small "café" space with mostly prepared foods that you picked from a counter. Not exactly what we were expecting but the sandwiches were good and we were hungry. It was a quick walk from...More

Only 1 thing on the breakfast menu which was unappealing. So had to choose from a sparse cabinet. Chose the chicken Brie panini which was cold so asked to be toasted. Was only slightly toasted so still cold. Coffee was average. Certainly not a place...More

Small cafe catering to the holiday park and people coming through. Good selection for breakfast and there are also supplies if you are going walking in the area. No WiFi available.

Nothing posh for solid fodder -quick and filling for a decent price. If you want gourmet then you're in the wrong place. Great for a quick filling breakfast before hitting the slopes or trails.

Fergussons is an affordable alternative to dining at the Chateau Tongariro but it's best to realize that it's more of a pub than a sit-down restaurant. It's up to the diner to place their drinks/food order at the counter (it will be delivered by wait...More

We were staying nearby at the Chateau Tongariro and thought we would have a change of scene for breakfast. Not a place I would recommend.

We were greeted by the smell of curry when we arrived down from the mountain and into Fergussons cafe! Coffee not bad nor the paninis we had. But the curry turned me off. Place full of dirty takeaway plates on tables. Mind you the staff...More
