We wanted to do the Tongariro Crossing and were tossing between The Park and another provider. The Park's package was cheaper but the other provider had a much earlier shuttle. We emailed The Park re shuttle times and were told that the manager had said they could organise a 6.30am shuttle for us no problems (theirs goes at 7.30am, which...

Like most people we stayed here to access the Tongariro Crossing. We stayed for 4 days to maximise the chance of the weather breaking, which it did; for 1 day. The rooms are small and very basic. My feet hung out of the single bed (I am 6ft tall) and we had to be very tidy to make sure we...

Stayed for one night on 29DEC, 2016 with my family. Room was clean and staff was friendly enough for me. As other rooms got a mini fridge (I could see through windows), I requested for one but they just said don't have one for my room. A bit shame as I remember that I had one when I stayed here...

The location of the place is good for doing all the hikes in the area. From the outside the hotel looks like an old barn, the rooms are standard with a tiny toilet/shower. They have a common area with kitchen and TV. On a good note, the staff is very friendly and helpful. It is an OK hotel, so don't...

It's ok, no problems at all. Rooms maybe a bit small. Second day we was a bit unlucky, had a family with kids over us. They was jumping around,....after 2 hours it's getting annoying. Don't know why they put family's on the second floor, makes no sense at all, as you can hear everything, also you're neighbours. A lot of...

I sent an email to book two nights in a standard double room because I had a grabone voucher. I mentioned it was my birthday and that I wanted a nice view. The answer was that I had to upgrade because the type of room included with the deal was not available, but when I check other websites it said...

We had a dinner in the restaurant at 8.00pm and from 9.30pm the bar was closed. But we are in the restaurant still eating with some more customers, more tables and no more possibility to have a drink. I found that not professional at all!! Specially in the busy period!

We spent a weekend here as part of the Tongariro Crossing experience. The accomodations are simple and clean sufficiently fitted out. There's an onsite restaurant and bar and great service and food. We will come back again.

Stayed 2 nights at this hotel to do The Tongariro Crossing. Great warm rooms but the best was the staff. Excellent to have friendly Kiwi staff - from Tony the bus driver to Lene the receptionist and Sami the barman. Very helpful and knowledgeable about the area.
