          The amenities were great, especially considering the price. The lounge room was spacious and the kitchen was very well-equipped. The room was warm enough, too, even in the cold, wind and rain. The guy at the front desk was friendly, too.

          The guy on the phone was very rude and impatient when I called up earlier to enquire the pick up times at the lodge and the ending point of the Tongariro Crossing, although the lady at the counter was very helpful when we checked in.
