We had three nights with Tony when doing the Alpine crossing and some white water rafting in the Tongariro River. We traveled with two daughters 9 and 12 years old. Tony is very nice and helpful and his daughters were eager to play with my own kids. Breakfast was good and there was plenty of it. Rooms are a bit...

We didn't have high expectations of this lodge but what a surprise!. The rooms were clean and comfortable, breakfast was good and we lucked into a reasonable dinner. But the surprise was our host. He was friendly helpful and we spent a good evening chatting to Tony and his other guests - much more fun than staying at a motel...

Tony and Tania are great hosts. We arrived on Christmas Day and he welcomed us with open arms to have dessert with his family! From the awesome breakfast, to booking the shuttle for the alpine crossing, everything was well arranged for. We did not have to worry about a single thing. Thank you for your great hospitality and making us...

Thank you Tony and Tania for making us feel so welcome and ensuring we had the most amazing stay. Felt so at home and didn't want to leave. The Lodge is homely, comfortable and we could not have asked for anything better. Such incredible value as well. The warmth of you both emanated throughout the Lodge. You make the best...

Tony is a warm and genuine man and we totally enjoyed our stay with him and his family. Our queen bed room was very comfortable and warm, love those electric blankets, with a basin and water for our ablutions. The showers were hot and lots of water pressure, after a long days tramping, very appreciated. Because we were the only...

Tony welcomed us with open arms even after we arrived late after 9pm! He is a wonderful host - friendly and accommodating, provided us a better room with no extra cost and offered snacks when we arrived. He took time out of his evening to take us on a scenic walk to the beach and explained the AMAZING night sky...

We absolutely loved our stay here at Tony's. The only complaint we had is that we couldn't have stayed longer. Tony is such a gracious host who definitely treated us as family. Felt at home the entire time. HIGHLY recommend staying here. Short walk to some stunning lake views.

Tony has been a wonderful host during our stay! Very warm and welcoming, and up for a chat if you have anything you want to talk about. The place is very clean and cosy, and decorated with lots of stuff that will give you a few giggles. You are able to walk to the shore of lake Taupo within minutes,...

My partner and I came to Tony after an exhausting hike and we were warmly welcomed. Tony showed us around and offered us to have dinner with him. His wife and he were quite sociable so we kept talking for a while. In the morning, they prepared an awesome breakfast for us! Tony is a great host and I can...
