We are the perfect place for Tongariro Northern Circuit and over night tramps. Our shuttle service frequently offers multiple departure times to the Tongariro National Park.

Lovely to hear. We have worked hard to have the rooms set to suit the layout. We have new carpet, fresh new linen and furniture in all our Lodge rooms. Thank you for choosing to stay with us.
