Excellent stay
All were good, from communications before our visit, condition of the beautiful chalet built of pinewood to guest service. Close to Taupo for supplies, and to the Tongariro National Park among other attractions. Would absolutely recommend to anyone looking for a leisurely retreat in that area of the North Island.

Lovely Winter Escape
I had never been to the Lodge until very recently - and so pleased we did choose the Lodge for an overnight stay. We also dined in the restaurant and we were both very impressed with the food, service, wines - plus it was great dining and relaxing in front of the open fires - so worth the visit.

It would have helped if the outside light could have been on ( unit 5) as it was raining and dark and hard to see were to park etc as I had not been there before. Comfortable clean warm chalet. Good food.
