"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.

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.
