We loved our stay at Plateau Lodge. The bathrooms were modern & kept clean, only negative comment would be it would have been nice to have some soap to wash your hands with. The kitchen was clean & very well equipped. We would love to stay here again.

Really nice lodge, clean tidy, Rooms are spacious, very comfortable beds made up with clean linen. Would be good to have toilets separate from the showers, as they were in the same cubicle as the shower.

Really helpful hosts at the lodge. They always try to be available, and go out of their way to give helpful advice. Were really flexible with us when our flight cancellation put us behind by a day. Would definitely recommend for families looking for a good place to base for skiing Mt Ruapehu and have a place to cook and...

Lovely, Im glad we could be of help. We are nice and close to the ski fields which makes it memorial trip with children as you do not have to drive far to experience the magic of snow. Enjoy the rest of New Zealand.

Travelling across NZ via campervan, we came across this gem of a spot. Nice hot showers, large kitchen facilities and a wood fire. Amazing. You could even get some time in a hot spa for a couple of dollars.

Yahoo, Im glad you loved our place. Our backyard - Tongariro National Park is very unique with active volcanoes, ancient lava flows that you can walk over. WOW. I hope the rest of New Zealand treats you well.
