Mid-Winter Xmas Dinner Run
Once again we are returning to stay at Chateau Tongariro and have obtained another attractive deal this year.
The details are:
Although we don’t have the good services of Les & Chris Newman we still will do an interesting drive which will take in the West side of the Lower North Island before arriving at the Chateau Tongariro where our accommodation will be for the night.
The deal at the Chateau Tongariro includes a special Dinner with all the Christmas cheer one would expect in the Chateau’s elegant dining room, double/twin room accommodation and a cooked buffett breakfast all for the price of $182.00 per person shared double room.
So booked with Michael & Elaine Anderson (before the 6th June 2018) to experience a little of the Downton Abbey lifestyle without the worry of managing all those servants.
Ladies remember to bring your posh frocks and bling and gentleman a jacket (tie optional)
NB. Drinks are your cost.
The hotel does have a plunge pool sauna for those who need water solace!!!
This deal is valid only to the 6th June (hence the reason for the early advice) for the stay on the night of the 28th June. If you wish to extend your stay please advise Michael Anderson and he will see what can be achieved. This may be an opportunity to do some of the walks in the National Park or a little sightseeing!!!!
Alternatively you are encouraged to join the group attending the Mid-Winter Back Country Adventure Tour starting on Friday 29th June to Sunday 1st July 2018. See separate email dated the 21st May from Paul Walbran.
