Enjoyed every moment of our stay at this lodge! Tracey and husband are very welcoming I would definitely recommend to anyone with a family good value for money too! Kids loved the ping pong table will be back next year definitely.
Lovely, friendly service from Tracey and Thomas. Felt like we'd known them for years! We'd love to stay here again. Would be perfect for a big family gathering. Ideal for skiing and ideal for doing the Tongariro Crossing. Close for going up the Skywaka too.
