10 person trip to do the Tongariro crossing.The team at the Chalet and cafe turned what was a budget trip into a memorable experience. The rooms were comfortable and warm. The food at the cafe was excellent and the shuttle to and from the mountain was reliable and friendly. How they combined the three together turned a good trip into...

We got a full refund as the chalet loft room did not meet our expectation, many thanks. The motels are unmanned, rather tired, well located on the main road handy to restaurants, however the spas appear disused so don't expect to be able to have a long soak after a long day on the crossing.

We found this place to be comfortable and handy for the ski field, the place is a bit dated and found a couple of electrical items not working and as the office is unmanned letting someone know was difficult, the place had all appliances to be able to cook meals, great views of mountain on a clear day.Would stay there...

Stayed here for the weekend that we did the Tongariro Crossing. Staff were great and really helpful. Found the room and bathroom facilities to be nice and clean/well looked after. Walls are pretty thin in the lodge so it can be noisy but good basic and cheap accom for a short stay!

We stayed here before doing the Tongariro Crossing. There's an excellent spa and barbecue area, we had a lot of fun. It's probably aimed more at small families than groups of 20-somethings but really there's something for everyone here. The location is great for the crossing. And the views are gorgeous.

Worthwhile staying if only for the breath taking view of the mountains. Travelled to NZ recently with our teenage boys. This was our first snow experience and while the snow and snowfalls did not disappoint neither did Alpine Chalets. Unit was clean and tidy, plenty of fresh towels with adequate cooking facilities and TV’s looked like they had been recently...

Stayed in the alpine chalets for around a month. No complaints. Everything you need, nothing you don't. The view to the mountain is spectacular and unbeatable! I got a really good deal on this 'long term lease'. Plenty of clean towels, soap etc. A dehumidifier in the room. Sure the curtains could do with a wash but all in all...

We booked this accommodation for 3 nights over the school holidays. The unit had been recently updated, with new TV and double glazing. The room was quiet, comfortable and very warm. We travelled to National Park by train from Auckland, and Alpine Chalets is a short walk from the station. Local transport up the mountain was easily arranged. We had...

Stayed twice this season because of the awesome location. The view of the mountain from your bed is fantastic. Just across the road for a meal and mulled wine too. The spa was clean and the Manager very helpful with the local advice for the many cool things to do. Good to see the new flat screen TVs going in...
