We took our Taranaki staff of 14 people to dinner and it was amazeballs. Absolutely wonderful attentive service and the food was well presented- artistic and yummy. Had an awesome time - beautiful night so we could see the Mountain from our private dining room. Totally recommend.

Delightful historic lodge accommodation, recently refurbished, located in the Taranaki National Park. Only 9 rooms, so book early. Only open Wednesday through Sunday nights. Ideal base for day walks/hikes. Excellent dining: venison a real treat. Best value stay in NZ, and very friendly staff.

This was a return visit (refer also Feb 16 review). Our family enjoyed our previous stay at the Stratford Mountain House so much that we all said we should return. We count ourselves lucky as we had another weekend of blue skies and clear mountain views. I couldn't help myself and decided to hike up to the summit again (via...

Fantastic stay up the mountain, bed was very comfortable and the spa bath was a lovely addition after being out in the cold. Room could do with double glazing to help combat the condensation, but there was a dehumidifier in the room as well as heating. Dinner at the restaurant was fantastic, however it was let down in ambience with...

16 family members went to the Mountain House for my mothers 85th birthday lunch. Some came from Tauranga and were very impressed with not only the fantastic location but the food was excellent and the staff and service were efficient and welcoming. The restaurant was comfortable, lovely and warm on a cold day. Great place, great food, Nice people. Beautiful.

We were here for only 1 night and wished we could have stayed longer. Rod welcomed us warmly after our long drive down from Tongariro. The room has been refurbished and is clean with a warm feel. There are self service laundry facilities. Lunch was lovely, we had a pumpkin soup, fish burger and mussels which were all delicious. Mt...
