Top notch experience for our family of 3 including a toddler.

Service by the lodge staff was top notch. They looked after us extremely well and helped us out with their local knowledge and connections.

Great location - in between National Park and Whakapapa Village - only minutes from either key locations.
Room is not modern but very clean and tidy and well stocked.

Overall, the great care by the staff, the great location, the clean warm room, made our stay very pleasant. Definitely one of our best experiences in New Zealand or anywhere for that matter.

Stayed for a couple of nights this week in a Chalet. Miki greeted me and was so welcoming and friendly. She was full of information and went through the weather conditions for the next day and organised a shuttle time for me in the morning. Nice and early. The chalet i was in was just beautiful. Lovely and modern and clean. So comfortable and I felt spoilt. Views across the way of the mountains. In an awesome setting. Callum drove me to the start of the Tongariro crossing. He is super knowledgeable and my safety was his priority...
