Lovely accomodation with lovely people
My daughter and I stayed in the 2 bedroom suite. The entire stay, complete with hike, bus transfers, breakfast and lunch was all above our expectations. Great value for money at a very nice spot in the world!!

Marina and Louis provided everything needed to make our stay very special and memorable!
No complaints at all - fabulous service, good food, warm and friendly hosts and excellent location for doing the Tongariro Alpine Crossing. We would highly recommend Marina and Louis’ property to anyone looking for a great value in a beautiful area of the North Island!
It was nice to have options for breakfast and the food was great both days. Marina and Louis booked the shuttle for us the day we did the Tongariro Alpine Crossing and gave us great information about what to expect on the hike. They seemed genuinely interested in our travels and shared their experiences as well. They couldn’t have been more hospitable and helpful! The suite had everything we needed including a gorgeous view of the mountains from our back patio.

Welcoming, wonderful and warm! Quaint and charming traditional accommodation in heart of National Park. Toasty warm beds with lovely crisp linen.

The lodge has a great historic feel to it, and the new owners are clearly putting in a lot of effort to get it restored to its former glory. We absolutely loved our stay, and have already booked our next visit. We will be regulars! Highly recommended.

Peaceful & quiet
I stayed here just recently on December 29. Nicely decorated room and a very quiet and peaceful night of rest. I was interested in the Tongariro National Park and Louis was helpful in providing options on things I could do at the Park. Had a nice breakfast the following morning at the Lodge including ham and eggs which are not usually included but they were kind enough to provide since I requested. There is also a restaurant just around the corner called the Train Station. Highly recommended. Make sure to make reservations. It was probably the best meal I had during my 10-day trip. If you are looking for a nice, quite & clean place to rest with friendly owners, look no further.
Talk to Marina & Louis about your requirements. They will find a room that best suits your needs.
