      Great stay in National Park”

      Pipers Lodge was a perfect place to stay while doing the Tongariro Crossing. The staff was very helpful and arranged the 40 NZD per person shuttle to/from the crossing start and end points. The facilities included common bathrooms, a very functional kitchen/dining area, a restaurant, and hot tubs. Everything was great! I would stay here again. 10/10

      Friendly, well-equipped, and SO helpful”

      I was a solo traveler with plans for the Tongariro Alpine Crossing the next day. The reception staff was so friendly and helpful, booking my shuttle for the trip to the start of the Crossing, arranging for breakfast, and getting me oriented to the facility. My room was very clean and a great value for the money. There are great facilities for skiers, but of course I was there during the spring season and didn’t have use for them, but I would definitely recommend them for a stay in the area.

      Great Lodge in Tongariro”

      Had a fantastic stay here recently. The owners, Bruce and Dianne, are great host and very accommodating. There is also a snooker and table tennis table (and other games) - and also spa! It is well located and only about 10 mins to Whakapapa. Great place for group of hikers as the common area is really big.(with comfortable couches), warm and inviting with complimentary coffee. A central kitchen is available for those wanting to prepare their own meals. Good place to converge for groups. Dinner is also reasonable priced in their restaurant.
