Tongariro Crossing Lodge
Reviewed 9 January 2017

I stayed here just recently on December 29. Nicely decorated room and a very quiet and peaceful night of rest. I was interested in the Tongariro National Park and Louis was helpful in providing options on things I could do at the Park. Had a nice breakfast the following morning at the Lodge including ham and eggs which are not usually included but they were kind enough to provide since I requested. There is also a restaurant just around the corner called the Train Station. Highly recommended. Make sure to make reservations. It was probably the best meal I had during my 10-day trip. If you are looking for a nice, quite & clean place to rest with friendly owners, look no further.

Room Tip: Talk to Marina & Louis about your requirements. They will find a room that best suits your needs...

Hi Sergio,
Thank you very much for the kind review.
I had a great time talking with you and hope all is going well with the project.
And thanks also for the feedback on the Station Cafe - it's helped us recommend it to many more guests, who have all also really liked it.
Best wishes,

We loved staying at Tongariro Crossing Lodge. Our unit was clean, comfortable and well equipped. The owners were friendly and helpful. They made our stay very enjoyable and were a great example of genuine Kiwi hospitality! We would definitely reccomend TCL to other travellers.

Nice place to stay and enjoy trips in the national park ( Tongariro, Ruapehu...). Quiet, nice views, confortable... The charming owner could do many things for you and is very useful as advisor ( transports...) Just ask him.
Wifi sometimes not available in bedrooms ( depends on the place of the bedrooms) but there's a nice garden where you can surf easily.
Could be a good bargain for couples or families if you stay somme days (ask for prices). Don't fear the old style looking as first impression, we could have stay a month in such a place. Feel at home thanks for the owner. Don't miss him

We stayed here after hiking all day in Tongariro National Park. The suites are very spacious, the bedrooms are large and the kitchen is an added plus. The beds were very comfortable.
We stayed in a room with a shower that was life-changing! It had multiple pulsating jets and a radio. I think we took 3 showers/day each.
Colin was so helpful to us and helped my nephews map out a running track every morning, as well as helping us with recommendations for hiking and climbing and area restaurants.
We can't wait to go back.

Room Tip: Ask for the room with the fantastic shower

Friends of ours had booked this lodge via an European agent. We booked and joined them.
The room was large, comfortable and very clean.
Will stay there again and recommend the lodge to friends. If we go again and to the Crossing will definitely stay there. Owner has lots of knowledge as well

Spent 3 nights in this period lodge. The rooms were spacious and had the essentials for a comfortable stay anywhere - a good bed and powerful shower. The breakfasts were healthy, tasty and catered for gluten free easily. Our kind and helpful hosts collected us from the station and offered good advice on nearby walks and the history of the area. We loved our time there

Very big room, clean, kitchen right alongside (wich also save the odour you might make by cooking), very nice environment. No trafic noise. Wi-fi is a bit low, but landowner is very thoughtful and arrange anything.
The big plus is having a break, or your meals, in the sunshine on the terrace, with beautiful flowers around, in a quiet environment.
The minus is that it's getting old, and the wi-fi doesn't work everywhere.
