We really enjoyed staying at this three star hotel. It was clean it was in a fantastic location for accessing the volcanoes and the walks in the region. If you didn't have a car buses pick up and drop off at all of the local starting points. The service was helpful and professional it is not luxury but very comfortable....

Bit rough but if you are staying there and are more focused on the hiking/ climbing/skiing opportunities and just need to put your head down at night then this place is ok. However discerning (4 star and up travelers might want to stay somewhere else.

We spent three nights at The Park and took advantage of its two-night summer deal (breakfast, packed lunch, tickets to the Tongariro Crossing). The accommodation was clean and comfy. The staff friendly and helpful. The restaurant was excellent also - we appreciated the happy hour, the sizeable portions and great tasting dishes after a long hike! When we walked to...

The rooms at The Park Hotel are a little dated but ours was comfortable and included a kettle, coffee etc, a fridge and a television, sound insulation is not fantastic though. The communal kitchen was excellent with a good seating area both inside and out and a comfortable lounge. We found all the staff to be particularly friendly and helpful...

Dated, old and shabby. Uncomfortable beds, we had a loft room for a family of four adults but we could not even sit around the table, only two chairs as there was not enough room for any more. Very very small and very basic. The TV was above one bed so only one person could watch it! Thank goodness none...

Probably fine for a budget holiday, but we found the room to be dull, (need the lights on at all times, - even at mid day), very basic and with very minimal facilities. Poor choice and overpriced breakfast, although the restaurant served a reasonable event dinner menu.

The rooms were rustic ski hotel, which is fine except when you are paying too much. Restaurant was very good. Hot tubs HOT and clean. Communal kitchen nice if you like to make your own breakfast as we do. Staff friendly and helpful

Enjoyed my stay at this cute little hotel. Friendly service, great food, clean basic room, awesome relaxing hot tub perfect for after finishing the Tongariro Crossing. Oh and the packed lunch was nice too. Sadly the visibility up in the mountains wasn't great so didn't see much. Read some bad reviews about this place and I really don't understand why!

A much better solution is to stay in Taupo and get a bus in from there. The Park Hotel was really basic, paper thin walls, poor quality food, poor wifi, and not particularly cheap. Just what you don't need before an eight hour walk the next day! I don't like giving poor reviews but really can't recommend this so called...

Hello, We are sorry to hear that you did not enjoy your stay while completing the Tongaririo Crossing. We will address you concerns, thank you for bringing these issues to our attention.
