We had planned to stay for three nights but the snow conditions weren't suitable, so decided to bring forward our two days at Tauringa and return later. Lorraine was very helpful and fortunately able to accommodate the change. Lorraine really is very friendly, knowledgeable and happy to have a chat.

Happily the conditions for skiing were much better on our return!

We were staying in a self-service room and it did have everything that we needed. The room was lovely and warm. The bed was very comfortable with good quality sheets and the towels were big and fluffy (& the heated towel rail was nice too). Lorraine had actually given us the disabled room because it had more room.

I did spend some time over in the lodge and the rooms look very good and the common areas very accommodating.

I wouldn't hesitate to stay here again.

Another accomodation place had let us down, and Lorraine took us in and even gave us a friendly price. We stayed in a studio unit which was all she had left. As studio units go this was fine, it was clean and warm, and just across the courtyard from the communal kitchen. But Lorraine and Ron's Kiwi hospitality really shines when it comes to supporting guests doing the Tongariro Alpine crossing (walkway). We had to turn back due to unexpected adverse weather at high altitude and without complaint or extra charge they came and collected us, and even rescued another lost soul who was not their guest, and delivered her to the base camp near Ketetahi. They were wonderful.

We stayed 3 nights and had a great time. We were able to do our own basic meals in the self contained 2 bedroom unit. The beds were very comfortable and warm and the friendly owners are always ready to help and share their local knowledge of the weather, ski fields and things to see and do. Our AFL team was in the grand final the weekend we stayed, and Lorraine went out of her way to find us a tv with the right station to watch it on! The spa is perfect for the end of a cold day in the snow. National Park is a very small, but cute town and a great base for activities around Ruapehu and Tongariro national park and I would definitely recommend Adventure Lodge & Motel.

Extremely friendly and helpful owners. They provided a great breakfast on both morning that we were staying. The shared kitchen facilities were great for those that like to cook their own dinners. It's a good location for access to the mountains. It is also and great little village.

A little expensive, but it is somewhat remote.

Only compliant would be that the walls were quite thin. I had to ask the person next door to turn his TV down. It was late and he had fallen asleep with the TV blaring. :)

I would definitely recommend this place and would happily go back.

Thank you David for taking the time to review Adventure Lodge, it was such a wonderful day you had to do the winter guided Tongariro Alpine Crossing and I am sure you will remember your adventure in the Tongariro National Park for the rest of your life.

Maybe you will come back and do this in summer - we would love to welcome you back - it is not too far, over the Tasman Sea.

Stayed here two nights and loved it. The owners run the place and it has much more of a personal feel than some larger places.

The bed and sheets were very nice and I had a great sleep. I had a studio unit and it's quite large. Nice to have central heating and TV in the room is a bonus for when you're too tired after a days climbing to go out.

Breakfast was quite good.

Will definitely stay again.

Room Tip: The room with disabled access (the ramp) has no other rooms directly beside it, so nice a quite.
