Highly recommend staying here - cheap and basic accomodation, great and warm atmosphere, friendly and helpful owners! Clean and tidy, common room with a bar and comfy lounges. Games room with pool table, table tennis etc etc. Can hire ski gear etc from here also which is great! Cant fault anything!

If you need an inexpensive place to stay in the Tongariro/Lake Taupo area, Pipers is it. We needed inexpensive sleeping space for three adults and found it here. The lodge is a trifle dated, but comfy and warm surrounded by spectacular scenery. The employees are friendly and helpful. The large common areas are great for informal gatherings.

We loved our stay here! Dianne is such a wonderful host, and we would have stayed longer if it we didn't have to go back to work. The room and bathrooms are clean and the staff is very friendly. We stayed for two nights and got with the package which includes breakfast, packed lunch for the crossing, and return transportation to the crossing. The package is worth it, I highly recommend it! Dianne even gave us complimentary access to wifi, on top of the free 400mb. We will definitely return!

This is the 2nd time we have stayed here and just as great as last time. Warm comfortable rooms, great communal kitchen, but best if all, great hosts. If you are going to walk Tongariro or ski Mt Ruapehu, stay here!

Myself and my fiancée stayed here for a night after completing the crossing. We decided this last minute and found this little gem by accident. It's not a glamorous establishment but it's got everything for 2weary travellers. Rooms were basic but large comfortable beds with extra duvets. Free use of hot tubs until 10pm. Free tea, coffee and hot chocolate in large communal area with big couches and extended gaming area. Owners very friendly. Didn't see any advertisements or signs for this place around National Park and there really should be as it could be missed, which would be a shame.
