Located in National Park, 10 miles from Mount Ruapehu, Holiday Chalet provides accommodations with a garden, free Wifi, a shared kitchen, and luggage storage space.
Place is comfortable, warm and cozy, even for a family of six people, 5 adults and one large teenager staying in it Excellent heat pump in the living room that maintain the whole place warm, but the bedrooms still have oil heaters for extra comfort. Kitchen and laundry fully equipped with appliances. Living room with set of sofas and big TV with Freeview. Good mattresses. Amicable landlord that helped with invaluable tips regarding mount Ruapehu visit. He also offered the space with table tennis and pool table in the next door available to us but we didn’t have time to use it.
The isite leaves a lot to be desired. It could easily go from barely adequate to basic competence by putting boards outside stating the office is closed. As walkers are supposed to register their walks on the mountain you wonder how accurate their information is when the office is closed and there isn’t even a notice board outside for walkers to use to show they’ve left or returned. The village in summer, now the Chateau is closed, has very little available accommodation. There is a shop for basics and Skotel runs a great restaurant and bar.
Absolutely recommend the 2 hour walk to Taranaki Falls. You can do it in sneakers, some parts are lovely bush right alongside the river. The landscape keeps changing. Its beautiful and the air is so fresh. There's a table at the falls so take your picnic and stop for a while. Get your caffeine fix from TNT Pataka Food Truck at Whakapapa Holiday Park, they make a decent coffee and the food looked good too. Unfortunately some places in the area closed due to staff shortages, so it might pay to check for what is open when you visit.
Hi, It is better to plan your trip for at least two days. You can enrol your kids to ski school at the nearby school for a longer duration trip so that they learn the art of skiing. Bringing chains with the car will help you to revisit the Whakapapa skiing location often and reduce the commute cost. All in all, it was good to see snow all around especially if you are coming from the northern part of NZ.
Meant to say in my review last night that we had a lovely waitress for dinner, young girl,Lisa? And the main reason we didn't pay for the dinner was because it came 10past10pm, besides one was not eatable.
The staff and food were excellent but the Hotel was understaffed because of "Grab 1" patrons filling the Hotel. The Management should not have allowed the "Grab 1 " to sell more places than the number of staff they had could provide the correct service.
visitor centre so welcoming and helpful about weather forecast, sorting out car permits for leaving our vehicles for 4 days while we do the tongariro northern circuit. beautiful and tidy village, everything was so clean and well sign posted. cafe in the chateau, beautiful food, welcoming, and kept clean with clear rules for COVID. skotel motel was just perfect for our group of 12 trampers doing Tongariro northern circuit was just amazing with perfect weather and all DOC huts were welcoming, comfortable and the views of nature, volcanic landscape, mountains, bushes, scrubs, flowers, rivers, streams, waterfalls, springs, sun, moon, stars in the sky were awe inspiring, precious and irreplaceable. it was so wonderful to only see few people around - huge difference from 2 years ago where it was absolutely packed on the Tongaririo crossing - 4, 000 people on the trail
Great location to enjoy National park. Great food.
