The sky’s the limit at Chateau Tongariro, and with our fabulous historic setting and an unbeatable natural location, you can dare to dream big.


A romantic wedding at Chateau Tongariro turns your special day into a real-life fairy tale.

To ensure that everything is seamless and stress-free, your dedicated Events Manager will help you through every step of the way. From planning dinner the evening prior, arranging pre-ceremony drinks and canapés, to delivering the ceremony itself and the final reception celebration, everything will be looked after by our incredible team.

There’s room for up to 250 guests in the atmospheric Ruapehu Lounge, 140 in the Tongariro Room, 80 in our airy Atrium, or 20 in the Ngauruhoe Room, while a marquee on our expansive manicured lawns in Tongariro National Park is even an option that will reward you with an unforgettable mountain backdrop.


Choosing the Chateau Tongariro Hotel as the venue for your wedding is easy. Our historic hotel has countless atmospheric indoor and outdoor ceremony spaces, and we’re happy to cater for everything from an intimate gathering of friends in the Ngauruhoe Room, to a medium sized wedding in the Conservatory, or even a full-blown gala for 250 with exclusive use of the stunning Ruapehu Lounge. A marquee in the garden is even an option which makes the most of our exquisite surroundings and guarantees a sensational backdrop to your photos.

Venue hire includes use of indoor and outdoor ceremony spaces and function room, white linen table dressings, tableware and our professional wait staff.


If you can dream it, we can help make it a reality.

Our venue specialists are available to assist with every detail of your wedding planning, and our long and distinguished association with the local community means that we can call on all the very best local and New Zealand based suppliers for flowers, photography, wedding cakes, decorations and so much more.

Every couple wants to look their best so, of course, professional hairdressers and make-up artists can be part of the package too. At the Chateau Tongariro Hotel we understand that the magic lies in those divine little details.
