Over Bayview Chateau Tongariro
Tongariro is het oudste nationale park van het land. Hier kunt u fantastisch wandelen, hetgeen vanuit dit hotel ook uitstekend mogelijk is. In ieder jaargetijde is de omgeving van het hotel dan ook schitterend; u vindt er kratermeren, sprankelende rivieren, adembenemende landschappen en tropisch regenwoud. En in de wintermaanden is het Tongariro National Park 'The place to be'! Het Whakapapa Ski Field is het grootste skigebied van Nieuw-Zeeland met meer dan dertig pistes! In de achtertuin van het hotel start ook de 'Finest one day walk in New Zealand', een van de mooiste wandeltochten over een afstand van 17 kilometer door een spectaculair vulkanisch landschap van gestolde lava, stenen en beekjes en door afwisselende vegetatie. Na al deze activiteiten in de buitenlucht is het heerlijk toeven bij Bayview Chateau Tongariro. De restaurants in het hotel hebben een uitstekende keuken en u kunt heerlijk ontspannen in de sauna of natuurlijk op uw kamer. Wij weten het zeker: een verblijf in het Tongariro National Park, zal beslist een plekje in uw hart veroveren!

"Old world charm in fantastic setting"
The hotel is historic in a fantastic setting with great views of the mountains and volcano. It offers old world charm and a full-on service to its guests. Sure, the hotel is a little dated now and certainly could do with updating/modernising bathrooms etc but as well as the expense it would need to be careful how it did this and maintain the 1920s charm of the place. Particularly enjoyable was the large lounge, the piano playing in the evening and the treat of the restaurant - though it is expensive! Beware that it is the destination of many a coach party - both for afternoon tea and overnight stays but it really is worth the stay for the location which is truly wonderful.
Luxury stays, like The Chateau, really need to tick all the boxes to justify their up-market claims and price tag. That was not the case during our stay. On arrival there was no staff to help with getting luggage from the car to the reception area. We had to get our bags inside where they were then collected and put in the luggage room. Several things were simply not working. The bedside lamp in our room had a blown lamp; the pool was closed for maintenance, as was the sauna. We had a power outage (confirmed by reception) on one night which lasted for two hours and impacted on our TV and wifi. As other reviewers have noted there is no air conditioning which results in some of the front facing rooms, such as ours, becoming quite warm. On our floor dishes from what we assume was room service was left for long periods in the corridors and around the lift area. Used plates were also left in the restaurant for long periods after diners had left - not a pleasant sight. Staff generally seem hard pressed to complete their tasks: it was after three pm when our room was serviced, priority being given to rooms with departing guests. Cleaners actually have an extra hour to do this as check-in is 3pm and check-out 10am. Normally a late check-in is compensated for with a late departure. Not here. High Tea was anything but. It took ages for our tea order to be taken despite only three people having High Tea. There is only one standard black tea, all the other options are fruit or spice infused which is not to everyone's taste. When we asked our server whether standard teas like Orange Pekoe was available she asked whether this was a fruit juice. There is no concierge type desk to handle routine enquiries about tours and hotel facilities, as a result guests gravitate to the front desk and face an inevitable queue. Our room keys ceased working and we had to get them re-keyed. There was only one person working at reception and we had to wait while another guest had arrangements for their entire holiday be organised while we waited for our keys to be redone. We ate in the hotel restaurant twice and enjoyed our meals. Staff were attentive but inexperienced. The staff we chatted to, in several areas of the hotel, seem to have limited experience in the hospitality industry and do the best they can with limited knowledge and training. The area is magnificent and the Chateau was a grand hotel, however, it is now dated. Paint is peeling off in several areas including the restaurant. The in-room compendium is very basic and we had to put in follow-up requests to reception for more information. The menu provided for High Tea is similarly tired and ours had food/beverage stains. Many of the issues raised in this review are long standing and raised by others. The response to these reviews that "We have shared your valuable feedback with our executive management who will deal with it accordingly" seems somewhat empty given the issues identified remain.
"Grand hotel that needs renovation "
While the location is spectacular and convenient for hikes in the park, the hotel is in serious need of renovation. The bathrooms look like they were last updated in the mid-20th century. Be aware that the parking lot can fill up, but parking on the road is permitted. Breakfast involves a rather steep surcharge. The rooms are not air-conditioned, though the nights are generally cool even in the summer.
"A grand old lady"
Hubby and I stayed one night at The Chateau. While it is definitely looking a little tired it is still a grand old lady. A few renovations here and there would make her look regal as she once was. Nonetheless we thoroughly enjoyed our Celebration Package, room, bubbles & chocolate, 3 course meal for 2 and breakfast for 2. The food was wonderful, the service fantastic and overall a great experience. Our room was gorgeous and was what we expected. One thing though, the shower was over the bath which might be difficult for some. Go in expecting to see a beautiful hotel that just needs a little TLC.
An excellent stay. Went with friends and all agreed that it would be one to repeat. Stay in Chateau was fantastic. Booked only one night. Wish it was more. Had a set meal as part of the deal. Pleased to say that it was right up there with any meal we have had before. If planning a special stay anywhere then this would be a great place to consider. Just a point for the management though, there is some areas that do need attention. The ensuite could do with a refurbish. As to could the ceiling in the lobby. And while on a walk comment was made that the 'staff accomodation' really let the place down. A coat of paint would make all the difference.
