Fodor's Review

High on Mt. Taranaki, this hotel and restaurant has a long-standing reputation for its dramatic setting and good food. In 2010 it was reincarnated after being purchased by the local Māori people, Ngati Ruanui, keen to provide jobs for their people through tourism. All 10 rooms (eight doubles, a twin, and a family unit that sleeps four) have en suites with spa baths and delightful views of the national park forest. A café serves breakfast until early afternoon along with

lunch and snacks, while the fine dining restaurant serves dinner centering on contemporary and classic cuisine made with local produce. Trails from the lodge traverse the lower reaches of the mountain through a mix of subalpine shrublands and dense forest, and the small ski club is a 10-minute drive and 20-minute walk away.
