As I said, it's just a warm place to rest during the Tongariro Alpine Crossing. The hotel overall is very nice, all made in wood, but the rooms are a bit small. There is the possibility to cook your own food in a common kitchen, and I liked this because it makes you save some money. There is a free open-air spa, so I suggest you to bring a swimsuit. The catering service is very good, but expensive. The best thing about the hotel is the offer of bus trips to the start of the crossing.

Small but clean rooms handy to the Tongariro Crossing walk, hotel has a shuttle and will provide a packed lunch if your doing the crossing. Nice warm spa pools for after a days walk. Staff are friendly helpful. Bar and restaurant are OK

This is a good price/quality hotel. The bed is good and the room is clean.
The bathroom is quite small but ok. If you get cold you have an electric heater you can use.
It is a bit noisy between the rooms and from outside but manageable.
We had breakfast included, but it is basic (milk, tea, gem, butter, honey, cereals, cheese, ham, toast).

Good to have a communal kitchen where you can prepare food as well as laundry. It has also a nice lounge and outdoor hot pools but didn't see anyone using them; perhaps too cold.
You can eat at the restaurant there as not many options around.

Stayed in a loft room this time with the 4 of us,facilities were fine but bathroom/toilet are very cramped,(could not open the shower door with the main door closed and filling hot water jug was difficult as the sink is very small),had a meal at the restaurant witch was a bit disappointing,breakfast the next day was very good,the staff are very friendly and helpful,spa pool was again great after doing the crossing,shuttle to the Tongariro crossing was on time. not impressed with the 2%credit card surcharge after they ask for credit card details while booking online.

Got accommodation package from Grabone.
Staff: Efficient and nice. The one at the reception is good but needs better bedside manner. Don't get me wrong, she was not rude but needs improvement with her customer service skills. Other staff members that I met were really nice- all smiles - except her.
Room: Adequate, a bit small for my liking. Good for 2 people. Comfortable bed and pillows. We were given a room close to the main door. Not a good place as noisy from people coming in and out. Door slamming frequently was not nice either.
Bathroom/Toilet: Again, small but adequate. But hard getting water for the kettle. The sink was really small to even fit the kettle.
Hot pools: A big plus!!! loved it! Soothed my very tired muscles!!!
Food: Continental breakfast was just adequate. I dint expect anything fancy so I was generally happy.
Parking: Big parking space but too many holes!!! When we got there it was raining. I didn't see the big hole and my car protested after a big thump! Be careful.
WIFI: Free! Another big plus! =)

Room Tip: Away from the main door. Noisy!
