Thanks for the great review. Staff certainly appreciate the special mention and we're pleased you enjoyed our food. We do acknowledge that at really busy times some rooms can be noisy when there are less than considerate neighbors. We installed an additional sound proofing wall...More

Rooms are clean and modern yet feels like a traditional ski lodge. In the winter it’s very cosy but feels more like a youth hostel than a hotel. Nevertheless the staff were friendly and helpful and all in all great value for money. They even...More

Many thanks for that great review - the lamb shanks are always a great dish. We pleased you enjoyed your stay and look forward to hosting you next weekend!

While the staff were helpful, attentive and accommodating the room was less so. We stayed for 3 nights in a mezzanine room. The upstairs bed was so awful, it bent in the middle and you had to sleep like a banana. Only one person could...More

About
Description
Your place to stay and gateway to all Tongariro National Park adventures and the outstanding Whakapapa, Happy Valley and Turoa snow resorts. The hotel enjoys stunning views of Mounts Ruapehu, ...More Tongariro and Ngauruhoe — perhaps better known as Mt Doom in The Lord of the Rings. We are the only genuine 3 star hotel in the region and our restaurant has the most extensive menu. We offer a quality mix of Queen, Twin and Family Mezzanine rooms for your comfort. We provide a friendly, relaxed environment for you to stay after your day’s activities. Whether you’ve walked the Tongariro Crossing, skied, snowboarded or ventured onto a mountain bike trail — our outdoor hot tubs are waiting to soothe you on your return. Then treat yourself to a drink or two in front of our inviting log fire before dinner at The Spiral, our cosy Aspen lodge style restaurant. Conference & meeting faculties, team building, and special interest groups catered to at our Tongariro National Park hotel. Less
