Amazing accommodations! Private hot tub was a great place to relax after the Tangariro crossing. Kitchen had a lot of supplies to make your meals as well as plenty of space to sit down and eat. Clean rooms and bathrooms. Highly recommend.

Wouldn't stay here again. Rooms were to small, had to pay for own wifi, staff miss informed us about the Tongariro Crossing. I would not stay here again. The place was OK at most and there were fly's everywhere! I should have stayed at the YHA.

Good Lodge for ppl doing the alpine crossing. Main complaint is how the mattresses extremely saggy in the middle, very unsupportive! Hard to get a goodnights sleep. Plus hard to climb into/out of as they didn't have proper ladders or railings.

Pros: Friendly staff, cozy common room, everything very clean. Cons: Rooms with two bunk beds are a bit cramped, it costs $5 for 24 hours of wifi (but maybe this is standard in the area's budget accommodation?), and the kitchen is weirdly lacking enough forks. Make sure you specifically ask about and sign up for the Tongariro shuttle the night before you want to go, because this info is not provided unless you ask. BYO cooking oil, because leftovers are promptly cleared out of the kitchen.

If you just need a good place to rest at night, stay here. If you're looking for any sort of hospitality, do not. The owners here run a business, and that is it for them. They seemed bothered any time I approached them with questions about laundry facilities, etc., and everything was about making a profit for them. I get it -- it is a business. But it was quite a dreadful place to spend the Christmas holiday, and I regret doing so.

Staff was very friendly and provided assistance whenever needed. Atmosphere was clean and the rooms had good views of the mountains. Excellent value for money.
