    The guy on the phone was very rude and impatient when I called up earlier to enquire the pick up times at the lodge and the ending point of the Tongariro Crossing, although the lady at the counter was very helpful when we checked in.

    The owners were very helpful and super friendly. The location, shuttle service and packed lunches for the hike were all great! The breakfast was simple, definitely nothing fancy. The wifi all over New Zealand leaves a lot to be desired, this hotel included. You get...More

    Stayed at Howard's Lodge to walk the Tongariro Crossing. Shuttle was organised efficiently. Our room was great, clean and comfortable. The communal kitchen was spotless and well equipped. Grant was extremely helpful with information and assistance with bookings for our ongoing travels.
