We had the pleasure of staying as a family at the Chateau Tongariro Hotel, the location is simply stunning. Breathtaking views and Mt Ruapheu is there to be enjoyed. We stayed there during the last school holidays so the hotel was at full capacity. The dining options were great as they put on a buffet each night which was well priced and offered delicious food that both adults and kids enjoyed.
The hotel is a grand old dame, the reception area and lounge complete with painist was fabulous. The kids enjoyed the movies although scheduled movie times do seem to be a little lapse and on several occasions the projectionist needed to be found!
As for the rooms, the decor is somewhat dated but the beds are comfortable, there is the unique sound of the floor boards creaking above you but in such a grand old hotel one would expect that.
Breaksfast time was a little chaotic and perhaps required better management flow of people. Overall a great stay......
