This historic lodge located in the Volcano National Park is amazing! The customer service was phenomenal from reception ( that included complimentary Mimosas ) to housekeepers being friendly and thorough. The room was nostalgic and the beds comfortable. The lodge provides welcoming rooms by a fireplace & another with an overview of the volcano crater. Beautiful views and comfortable chairs - great opportunity to chat with fellow travelers if desired or tuck away for a great book after a day of hiking the National Park. The National Park is a great experience to understand our planet and the forces of nature. Very interesting! The volcano house restaurant is definitely a 5 star experience for dinner and for breakfast. We ate all morning & evening meals there after our first delicious encounter and also were affirmed by asking locals in Hilo about their favorite restaurant. Chef Daniel at morning buffet is the best and very friendly. Jeffery, the barista was a great conversationalist and helpful with nearby attractions. Great customer service all around. Would definitely recommend !
Dinner at Volcano House

Enjoyed a lovely dinner at the Volcano House. Food was excellent and our server Beth was very knowledgeable about the wine list. Recommend reservations as the host acted like it would be a challenge to seat us, even though there were very few diners during the slow month of May.
For lunch only this vist

On previous visits, we've stayed (and loved) Volcano House, but this time we drove up from Kona to have lunch. It's one of the two easily accessible sites to the volcano crater (other access point is the steam vents). After all the activity last year, the volcano is back sound asleep. The meal at Volcano House is always impressive.
Amazing views while having lunch

What a great place to enjoy lunch while overlooking the crater. Absolutely the best place to relax after walking the trails around the crater. The restaurant is located ion the first floor of this older lodge.
Great location and views

Great location - We had an absolutely stunning crater view which was incredible to wake up to. The hotel itself is older and therefore a bit noisy, I would probably choose to only stay one night if we did it again. Restaurants are ok, so much potential! There was some confusion at checkout when the card used for guarantee was charged even though we’d asked for it not to be.
