10/10 Exceptional

Teresa the host went out of her way to be helpful, even driving to find us when we couldn't fine the lovely apartment. I would give 11 out of 10 as a review. Definitely go there. The Powder Keg restaurant and pub is easily walkable! Thanks Mark and Joanna

Clean & comfortable hostel, walk to train station
My summer stay at Station Lodge was a treat! The grounds and common area rooms (kitchen & lounge) were clean & comfortable, and had everything I needed. Beautiful location with view of ski mountain. They had a few bikes that guests could use - which was a treat! The staff set up my transportation to/from Tongariro Alpine Crossing which was awesome! I was over the top surprised at how much I enjoyed Station Lodge. Thanks!!

10/10 Exceptional

Just the perfect spot we needed!
We only went for a weekend, and we loved it! Jane and family are super friendly and helpful. The chatel we stayed in was super clean, has everything you need (and more) and I bet it is perfect to go during winter for the ski season with a couple of friends or with the whole family. The hot pool was amazing as well! We definitely recommend it!
