Had a great stay at Discovery Lodge Tongariro. We had planned to stay for 2 nights and do the crossing (with shuttle) in the middle. Unfortunately, the weather forecast upon our arrival was quite poor and they were forced to cancel the crossing shuttle for the upcoming morning. They were very nice, understanding of our situation, and forthright in their advice on what to do instead. They allowed us to cancel our 2nd night free of charge enabling us to get back to Auckland faster for our flight to Queenstown (they also offered a free room upgrade if we chose to stay).
Our room was super clean and beds super comfy. It was a great place to stay (I'd say best in the area) and if we return to the area we will be sure to stay here.
