Introduction

Found in 22 acres of expansive grounds on the banks of the legendary Tongariro River, this 48-room lodge is the highest hotel in the country and a true alpine retreat.

The wood decor allows guests to appreciate the natural wonder of the Tongariro National Park and, after exploring the area on skis, by foot or on a mountain bike, the hotel welcomes guests back to relax in the sauna or unwind by the fire.

The Terrace Restaurant is renowned for the chef's creative use of national produce in a range of old favourites. Saturdays see an Asian buffet and Sundays a carvery buffet in addition to the usual a la carte menu. The friendly Terrace Bar offers a wide range of New Zealand beers and wine and is open in the evenings until late.

The hotel also offers a Games Room on the lower ground floor, where table tennis and other all-weather activities can be enjoyed.

All rooms have tea/coffee making facilities, TV, refrigerator, en suite bathroom, hairdryer, iron and in-room safe. Many also have their own balconies overlooking the distant ranges which include Mt Ruapehu and Mt Ngauruhoe. All accommodation includes access to the shared kitchen and lounge area.
