After reading various reviews on Trip Advisor, I decided to book at Tongariro Crossing Lodge. I am very glad that I did as Colin was friendly and went the extra mile to make our stay lovely. I don't often write reviews but would love to send more people his way.

We stayed in the Whakapapa Room which was pleasantly decorated with a Victorian theme (and a brilliant mohair blanket). The heaters meant that we were able to keep the bedroom + sitting room toasty despite the Antarctic front moving up. Colin had already turned the heaters on to pre-warm it for us. He also opened up the adjoining unit so that we could use the kitchen (as there was noone staying there).

We had a really lovely stay and would definitely go back.

Colin and Jimmy (father and son) own and run this lodge and are wonderful hosts. The atmosphere is very casual, family-like, and the proprietors are just great. Jimmy did all sorts of research for us and presented us detailed maps and hand written suggestions for things to do based upon our timing and desires. He did this without us asking! They gave us free access to their computer for us to use the internet, and the breakfast was delicious. The room was comfortable, roomy, very nice. In summary, the stay was comfortable, warm, clean, casual, and well worth the price.

we stayed for 3 nights in the jeruselum room, which had a small shared kitchenette area with one other room. Comfortable stay and would recommend it to others.

We found this place by accident, just driving around the Tongariro National Park Village. It had "curb appeal" and this was borne out by the inside of the individual lodges. They were furnished to a high standard, very comfortable and cozy. We introduced ourselves to Captain the cat and got the seal of approval. It was very handy for the 5am start the next morning for the Tongariro crossing. We loved it.
