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!

"Spend the money!"
This is best hotel if you are doing the Alpine Crossing (or spending any time in the Tongariro National Park). It's a vintage property, but the rooms are completely up-to-date and the views are wonderful. Originally I was going to give this hotel 4 stars instead of 5 because while the room and desk service was great, the restaurant service our first night was awful! I had to hunt down a server 3 times to get me some water. Even worse, my husband ordered a glass of wine for his entree which didn't show up until desert. Totally unacceptable. This was our 10 year anniversary and the first of 2 nights so we were very discouraged. However, the next night, the experience was completely different. The restaurant manager acknowledged the previous night's problems, left a carafe of water for me (which was topped off every 10 minutes) and made sure my husband's wines came on time. I have been in customer service for many years and I know how hard it is to insure a high level of customer service every day, 24-7. The real 'acid test' of any operation is how they take care of the inevitable lapses in service. The Chateau Tongariro passes with flying colors!
"Hotel ok, restaurant not so much"
Hotel was built in 1920's and has that charm. Rooms have been upgraded but beds are like hammocks. Also bathroom shades need to be cleaned. Also the room numbering was a bit strange. We were in 705 but on the 3rd floor. Ultimately a minor issue but still confusing. Dinner in the dining room was not good. Mushroom soup seemed like it was made from a 50 year old mix that had become stale and tasteless. No mushrooms evident. Lamb description was confusing since the main ingredient was sweetbreads which turned out to be tasteless fried coins of some meat substance. Waiter was pleasant although equally perplexed by menu. Unfortunately there is nothing else nearby. Not a good evening.
"Go for the location"
A character hotel set on the edge of the Tongariro National Park and 6km from the Whakapapa ski area where we enjoyed the lifts to view from 2020m. Hotel was not capable of delivering any rooms before its 3pm arrivals policy but once we got our room it was a lovely 2nd floor corner in the heritage part with views of one of the volcanoes. The room had been redecorated though the bathroom was dated but functional. The lift in this area is also being replaced. We stayed two nights and very much enjoyed a nouveau cuisine dinner in The Ruapehu Room the first night - pricing and service was reasonable for the quality. A splendid room but devoid of pictures and that brings one to a point - this is a 1929 built hotel and not a converted grand European house, possible the cause of some disappointments we read elsewhere. Second night we ate at the Tussocks bar over the road and enjoyed that too. We also enjoyed the chateau cinema and found the laundry facilities excellent. Would have given it 5 out of 5 if it was not for the bathroom and the need to chase housekeeping at 3pm to get our room serviced after night one (which confirmed our thoughts from arrival that alls not quite right in that department).
We had high tea at the hotel on a glorious sunny day We booked ahead and the hotel placed our table in front of the big windows facing Mt Ngauruhoe The view is divine We were a family group and the food and service was excellent We will definitely do this again
"An old school hotel in a stunning location"
We had wanted to stay here since we arrived in New Zealand. We'd booked on a whim and drove up to the Chateu in heavy fog so no views, after a drive across the Forgotten Highway (a must see). It loomed out of the the fog like the hotel in The Shining. Great welcome, comfortable clean room with updated bathroom, but as with other guests a bit noisy as we were beside the stairwell. We had pre-dinner drinks, with my dry martinis being perfect. The restaurant was expensive but the food was some of the best we have had for a long time. Perfectly cooked beef medallion and vegetables and great service, with really friendly staff. Desert was fabulous. We had breakfast which was buffet and lashing of bacon, sausages and coffee. The coffee was very average-they need a real barista. Overall a great experience apart from the piano player in the lounge who should lose the backing track and just play some old style piano, not necessarily hits of the seventies. It is time some of the decor was updated, but that may be part of the charm.
