Last night we checked in late and looked bedraggled after a long day climb/hike at Tongariro Crossing. The lady at the reception were quite welcoming and went an extra mile of bringing us yummy food to our hotel room which we devoured in no time as if we haven't eaten for days. Just minor teeny weeny issues I would like to say if I may is the mattress was quite hard and uncomfortable. The rest of the facilities were fine. The lockwood room was excellent very cosy and well heated with a view to die for.
Wish to share some memories of our recent visit despite not being able to go up in the sky waka due to crappy weather, it was a lovely time after all. (26th- 29th September
Hi, made a booking for Easter but obviously due to travel restrictions, I can't get there. Rang you guys and you told me I need to cancel with Trip.com, went to trip.com and they said only the hotel can cancel my booking. Can you confirm this?
Hutana was asking where is the NZ and Maori Flags mum???
Delicious kai, huge kiwi portions, compliments to the chef👍👍👍awesome staff

You don’t like flies, right?
Neither do we….however….
The Hoverflies are out at the moment. They are both fascinating and adorable.
Each one studiously guards a wee patch of sky, around our waist height. I figure they guard about 3m x 3m. Furiously defending from all (other hoverflies)
As we go about our tasks they tolerate us, never bother us, and they fly silently.
Who’d have thought you’d adore a fly?!
I’d love to know more about them.
Any experts out there?

The perfect Summer or Winter Destination

http://www.skotel.co.nz/

Imagine yourself breathing in the fresh mountain air and enjoying the clear waters of the Tongariro National Park from your base at the Skotel Alpine Resort, the highest hotel in New Zealand.

Indulge yourself at a true alpine retreat nestled in the tussock on the edge of the Whakapapa Village in the heart of the Tongariro National Park. Skotel's wood décor will allow you to appreciate the natural wonder of the Tongariro National Park. After an exciting day skiing, tramping, mountain biking or exploring, come back to the Skotel and relax in the sauna and spa pool, unwind at the Terrace Bar by the fire, or enjoy dinner at the Terrace Restaurant.

At the Skotel we give you the opportunity to design your own adventure from accommodation to activities with all the information available and friendly staff to assist in organizing it for you.
