Stratford Mountain House | Taranaki Mountain Hotel Accommodation



Naumai Haere Mai

Welcome to the Ngati Ruanui Mountain House situated on Maunga Taranaki (Mount Taranaki) which represents the most sacred of ancestors to Ngati Ruanui.

Owning the Mountain House allows us to extend to all visitors our manaakitanga (hospitality) and provide a unique experience.

As well as the Mountain Café, Award Winning Licensed Mountain Restaurant and Mountain Bar we offer luxurious and elegant alpine accommodation. The Mountain House is a great place for an intimate wedding, conferences or functions. Within walking distance you will find easy grade walking tracks where you will experience alpine flora and birdlife.

Ngati Ruanui, along with managers Rod and Lynne Pulford, assure you of a warm welcome and look forward to your visit.

Our restaurant and bar are open Wednesday to Sunday from 9am.



Rod, Lynne and the team, we would just like to say a very big thanks for the amazing venue and wonderful service you provided for our wedding. We were extremely happy with our day and thank you for making it more special for us.

From Angus and Amanda.

To Lynne and Rod, just a little note to say thank you for your wonderful hospitality and for making our wedding day just perfect.

Love from Craig and Zana Treanor


The Mountain House has eight double rooms, a twin room and a family room (sleeps 4). All rooms have en-suites with spa bath, television, tea making facilities, own access and parking, and are handy to the café and restaurant. $155 – $195 per room.


Enjoy great coffee and light meals, either in the main café area, or on warm days sit outside and soak up nature. The licensed restaurant overlooks floodlit bush and provides diners with a wide selection of cuisine options all cooked to a high standard by top chefs.


If you are planning a private function, such as a family get-together or business meeting, contact the Mountain House staff to discuss. Our team has the experience to help you plan your function, and on the day, look after you and your guests.
