What a fabulous lodge in beautiful Turangi, just south of the stunning Lake Taupo. The outlook here is world class with a wonderfully established tree laden property, which we visited in early autumn. Our chalet was in perfect condition, and the bed was huge, comfortable and warm. We had champagne to share but no ice, this was no concern for the friendly bar staff who gave us a champagne bucket with ice and champagne glasses for our room, and refilled with ice on request which was awesome. We booked in to the restaurant for dinner, viewed the wine list and selected a local Champagne just to try something new. As it turned out that was quite a popular bottle and none were available, but the manager offered us the French Blanc de Blanc (at twice the price) for no extra charge which was a wonderful surprise. Our starter was delicious (Salmon), and our mains of Snapper wrapped in Proschetto and Crispy Skin Mount Cook Salmon were superb.
We then struck up a conversation with the Lodge Manager who upon hearing we were staying here for our honeymoon then also provided the both of us complimentary glasses of 25 year old Port to finish our evening.
All in all our stay at the Tongariro Lodge has been outstanding, from the accommodation and the sensational food to the exceptionally friendly service, we couldn't offer a higher recommendation.
