Comfortable, clean room and exceptional staff.”

We enjoyed our stay here to hike the Tongariro Crossing. The rooms were clean and comfortable. Be mindful of the check-in hours of this location. The spa was not working when we stayed but the laundry was helpful at $4/load. We booked bus service with National Park Shuttles, but ended up taking Adventure Lodge shuttle since they are partners - just FYI. If staying to do the hike, be sure to stay at least two nights.

The Best Place to Stay in the National Park Village!”

If you are looking for an all round accommodation experience, which is very well priced and adds real value, the Adventure Lodge & Motel is the place to be. The staff here go out of their way to ensure all of your needs are met. A very warm and cosy environment with a comfortable bed! I didn't actually go on the Tongariro Crossing, but on my bucket list and of course I'll be staying at the Adventure Lodge & Motel.

Very comfortable”

The lodge is just a short drive to Tongariro crossing trailhead. The hotel offers round trip bus service at a reasonable rate for start and end of crossing. The rooms are basic and a bit dated, but large enough and clean. The walls are thin but it seems the guests are very considerate to their neighbors so we slept fine. Can’t say enough about how helpful the staff is here to ensure you have a pleasant stay.

Enjoyed the stay very much! ”

The pros definitely outweighed the cons. Cleanliness was perfect, and it was an enjoyable stay for pre and post Tongariro Alpine Crossing! The drying room was very helpful in keeping our things dry and clean. We also tried out the private spa room, a good time to relax. The only con would be the shuttle for Tongariro is slightly expensive, hence we chose another vendor's shuttle service.

We stayed for the night before and after our Tongariro Crossing Hike. Our room was clean and very comfortable. They are addressing the unsound proof walls. Well organised drop off and pick up from the crossing hike. The showers were hot and powerful. Well equipped kitchen area if you ant to self cater but also places to eat out locally. Breakfast were yummy! Stars at night were amazing.

Let down”

We booked this motel for the Tongariro crossing. The main reason for choosing it was to be near the walk and because they said you could get breakfast in the morning (important before the all day walk) and a packed lunch for the walk (important on an all day walk). I emailed 4 days ahead of arriving to book the breakfast and packed lunch only to be told they couldn't provide either, due to staff shortages! We were tourists, had a long drive to Tongariro the night before the walk and did not want to keep buy food a day ahead and keep it in a hot car. The transport to the start of the walk was at 7am the next day (booked for us by the owners) so it was going to be very inconvenient/difficult to get food the morning of the walk. Fortunately, the Tongariro Crossing Lodge 2 doors away, stepped in and provided us with a lovely breakfast and packed lunch - on virtually no notice at all. It was also galling to see the Adventure lodge and motel give other people packed lunches on the bus.

Reviewed January 26, 2020

Hi there the lodge that volunteered to do your breakfast is only 4 x rooms and the husband and wife do all the jobs themselves as it is a very small exclusive operation. it was very nice of them. the packed lunches given out on the bus were people that had pre ordered them - and they also got breakfast - we provided nearly 20 that day to people who were organised and let us know - we said no to you because we had already hit our maximum people to do breakfast and cut lunches that day - we had run out of food - things arnt as simple as they seem -you obviously have not run your own business as you would know not to be so judgemental!

A good choice for hikers”

Helpful and dedicated staff.

The best part of staying at the Adventure Lodge is enjoying the service of the helpful and dedicated staff. They change hats several times a day as they move from front desk to kitchen to transport vans. The restaurant hours are limited, so inform them of your order in advance. It's probably your best bet for breakfast, especially if you are heading out onto the trails, but I'd recommend a walk to Schnapps or the Station at dinnertime for variety. The hotel provides trail transport for a fee and complimentary shuttle to/from the rail station. The lodge room is very nice when they get the fireplace going. It's a terrific spot to get to know your fellow hikers. The rooms are modest but comfortable. Some have en-suite facilities while others share large bath/shower rooms.

Best place for the crossing”

It is a really good place if you plan to do the crossing, they provide shuttle from the hotel to starting point and pick you up at the end point back to hotel when you are exhausted (it costs, but everywhere cost the same price). Besides, it provides breakfast which is free and it is a full breakfast! The only downside was a bit noisy in the early morning when everyone got up for the crossing.

Pros: Staff were very friendly/ helpful, lots of facilities to cook with in kitchen, quaint saloon style lodge with character! Free DVDs to hire, charger/ cords to borrow, hot tub available (for booking), transport (at additional cost) with knowledgeable driver re the crossing, close to local shops. Cons: we were on the second level of the lodge and there was no toilet on this level (not good for someone needing toilet frequently), kitchen was too far away from our room (had to walk downstairs and then outside to access kitchen). Kitchen also needed more attention from staff (bin wasn’t emptied in the few days we were there) and fridge needs more regular emptying out as there was still food leftover from previous travellers which had gone off.

hi thanks for your review - as to the location of the guest kitchen - we are one of the few left in the village that has one - how do you know the bin wasnt emptied in days - there are alot of people use it and if we are full to capacity there is always a full bin - our staff do their best to keep up with it but they cannot come back at 9 pm at night at do this after everyone has cooked and left a mess which they usually do - thats why most people have shut down their kitchens in their lodges. we cannot heave out food in the fridge until it does start to go off as someone told us off for throwing out their food and we didnt realise they still wanted to eat it - most people do not mind walking a few steps around the corner to the kitchen as they are all here at this time to walk - if you need to use the toilet frequently be prepared and ask the lodge ahead of time how far are bathrooms to your room - i

We were stoked. the lodge was always warm, staff were very friendly and willing to help. It was crazy cheap value for money. Definitely would stay again, the only issue is the layout if you're staying on the cheap is a bit annoying as you have to go outside to get to the kitchen, but that is a minor inconvenience next to all the service, warmth, and just great atoms you get in return for such a low price.

You cannot get a better welcome than one by Gillian. She is wonderful, direct, and very helpful. What a beautiful soul! As other people pointed out, sound transmission between units is quite noticeable, but a known issue by management. Most people are respectful of that and it’s managed fine.
