“We spent 5 days at The Fishing Lodge with some friends. A great place for a reunion with world class fishing at the end of the garden and hot pools/skiing/tramping within easy driving distance. The Lodge itself is superb; well appointed and spacious with warm spaces and excellent facilities. We loved the open fireplace and the lounge is perfect for wet or rainy days with a great selection of books and games etc. Honor and Richard were great hosts and easy to contact; Richard even helped smoke a fish for us at short notice. We look forward to visiting again.”– Jon, June 2020, 5 stars

“Honor’s home is well appointed and very cozy with luxury touches throughout. It is nice enough to feel pampered but not stuffy. The location is perfect if you’re an angler, especially if you enjoy fly fishing. There is a path behind the house which guides you to some of the best spots on the Tongariro River. The house is near the super market and river but also feels very private and secluded. We loved visiting and plan to come back again and again. Honor is so kind and accommodating. She’s the type of host you can chat a bit to if need be and is very knowledgeable about the fishing the river. There is a cafe/fly shop only a few houses down which you can walk to to grab a coffee, some delicious food and some gear, if need be. If you are hesitating to book, don’t!! Honors place is very much worth it!” – Brooke, June 2020, 5 stars
