We chose the TRM because it looked like a good location to base ourselves near the Tongariro National Park. Ross and Pip were great hosts, full of local information, loaned us some nice books on local hikes, and a walking stick! The main focus at TRM is fishing, but they are also quite knowledgeable about hiking in the area. The rooms we had were comfortable, a bit worn, but very clean and serviceable, we felt right at home. TV and wireless worked great, and we had everything we needed for self catering. Hot showers were a big plus after hiking the Tongariro Crossing, and they had a guest laundry. We were very glad to spend 3 nights there! Resident greeters Boof and Pumpkin (the dogs) made us feel like part of the family.
