We were blown away by how warm and comfy we felt here. Service was warm and open. We instantly felt relaxed as we walked into reception. Wood fire in the restaurant and bar made it smell and feel amazing. Beds were comfy and food was very flavourful and balanced. Have to go back to catch a massive trout.

We have our Faculty retreat here every year. That's been the deal for the last 13 years. There is a reason we keep coming back. The rooms are gorgeous and suit our small conference group of around 25-30 people. There is an excellent meeting room with all the resources you might need. the food is delicious. Something about the river...

After a long day of travelling and looking forward to a tranquil resting spot, the 8 of us arrived to a reservation of 5 separate chalets. Our reservation was made through our travel agent who utilized Expedia to book the chalets. We received our confirmation. We arrived at about 5 pm only to find out that there was a problem...

What a lovely place to stay. Beautiful lodge and grounds. Gorgeous walks all around. Jill and Gerry go out of their way to help with any queries. The chef is outstanding and we had the most delicious dinner.

This is a great place to stay if trout fishing. We noramlly stay elsewhere yet Turangi is really lacking on decent accommodation and has no where decent where can eat or drink in the evenings too. We all arrived and were on the river within 30 minutes. Turangi is great place for trout fishing. We spent most of the trip...

We needed a location that was reasonably close (5 hrs) to Auckland. It was easy to find and provides a great restaurant. Rooms were adequate. Close proximity to Tongariro River, hiking trails and Lake Taupo..

Was taken in by the web site, which promised a better dining experience than the one which was actually provided. So poor was the service we left the restaurant 20 minutes after being seated after seeing no one or receiving any service. We dined en suite on some gas station food we had purchased locally earlier in the afternoon. The...

Located in a quiet environment and close to the Tongariro river it is a good place to stay for fishing and also for visiting the Tongariro National Park. It has a restaurant open for dinner and good access to the rooms from the car parking. Room haces small terrace overlooking the garden.

And I almost did. Visiting this place was like a blind-date for me. I’d seen the pictures and it looked great - so far so good. My wife booked it as a treat as I was making her do the Tongariro Crossing. That treat extended to booking to most expensive Villa/house with 4-bedrooms. The place was solid & woody with...

Oh No, we are devastated, we so much would like the opportunity of a 2nd date. There are somethings we don't do on first dates..and unfortunately one of them is room service however in saying that we usually do have a staff member that is willing to run a bottle of wine to the room.

We spent 2 nights in an executive chalet which was perfect for us! The lodge is charming. We had cabin 10 which probably had one of the best views! We found meals to be very expensive especially as no sides came with the meal. There was also not a great selection as they were out of a few items when...
