Clean, modern, well maintained facilities. Friendly helpful staff/owners. Great location. Speights bar is a 5 minute walk and a great place for apres ski food and drinks. Would definitely come back if I were to return to Tongariro.

Great news and thank you. We do have a few restaurants & bars all in walking distance from the lodge. Ski rentals are just across the road and small supermarket is located in the same area.

Great to hear your stay was what you expected. Our village is small 4 x 4 street with a small four square/supermarket. There is large supermarkets in either direction which are a 25 minute drive.
