About Ruapehu Room
The Ruapehu Room is the Chateau Tongariro Hotel's signature restaurant and is located off the opulent Chateau Tongariro main lounge. The Ruapehu Room delivers the finest ambience and all the sophistication expected of the Chateau’s elegant traditions.
The glow of chandeliers, the clink of wine glasses, service that is second-to-none and superb Pacific-Rim dining await you.
Afternoon Tea is available every day between 11am and 5pm.
Delicious hearty food with a great 'formal dining' atmosphere. The wait staff were extremely courteous, quick service, and very pleasant live music. Highly recommend!
We had a thoroughly enjoyable stay. Thank you for acknowledging my wife's birthday. We would love to come and stay again soon/
I know this will sound terribly pretentious and nit-picky, but: The teaspoons with which one eats some of the items of the high tea (e.g. the cheese-cake and creme brulee), and boiled eggs at breakfast are really thin and and unpleasant to use. The handles tend to dig into the hands, especially when exerting a little pressure, e.g. breaking the crust on the cheese-cake, and the thin edge of the spoon is unpleasant on the lips. Obviously this is a very small thing, but when such attention to detail has gone into most aspects, it seems a shame that this thing, which could be easily changed, has been overlooked. On the positive side, if that's my only complaint, it must be pretty good!
lovely staff - so welcoming and helpful. beautiful, historic hotel - feels like we are in Canada.
Service below that of previous two nights probably due to bedding in new personnel but the more important criteria of food presentation and quality still 5 star.
Signature beef dish could not be faulted.
Duck was superb
The service could not be faulted and it was made more enjoyable by the diverse nationalities of the wait staff.
It was an excellent meal served very well.
The off season special is what got us along, we had not planned to have a holiday at this time. We will be back.
Great package for $399.00. We had a wonderful meal with superb service. Accommodation was also excellent.
Took twenty minutes for a spiced tomato juice to arrive - had to remind the waitress.
an enjoyable night. staff,food and ambiance all added to our anniversary celebration.thank you
Excellent food, fantastic friendly and helpful staff, a beautiful memory. Thank you all.
We thoroughly enjoyed our dining experience, would love to have seen a cheese cake or creme brule' on the dessert menu though. I agree with the statement of 'service second-to-none' including the following day in the Cafe and Bar where nothing was too much trouble - yummy scones with jam and cream :)
