    My wife and I stayed in a chalet for two nights and had a lovely time. Callum, his wife, and employees are top notch people who made our overall Tongariro Crossing experience very memorable. It was the perfect place to stay.

    Lovely chalet accommodation, wonderful view of the mountain and good shuttle service for the crossing. Really impressed with the meals we had in the restaurant and restaurant staff - friendly and helpful. Great location to check out other things in the area. Would stay again.
