What a beautiful experience. Bernie and Marie are lovely hosts, extremely obliging. The rooms and beds are very comfortable, lots of hot water and fabulous shower pressure. Bernie cooks a wonder breakfast and if you don't feel like a hearty breakfast plenty of cereals to choose from.
My friend and I stayed here as we were cycling the Old Coach Road. On booking the Lodge, Marie and Bernie were super helpful and booked our electric bikes on our behalf and offered to take us to the start of the track at no additional cost. The lodge itself is so beautiful and the grounds and rooms are immaculate and modern. Breakfast was included in the package and was also amazing. Marie and Bernie were so lovely and helpful and made our stay extra special!! We will definitely return here and I can wholeheartedly recommend the Ruapehu Country Lodge. It is also just a very short drive into the town where there are some lovely restaurants and cafes.
Fantastic place to stay, the perfect location to enjoy all the great activities that this area has to offer. Hosts Bernie & Marie are keen skiers, hikers, & bike enthusiasts, so they’re the ideal hosts for this area. A beautiful & immaculate property set in stunning grounds, lovely spacious private rooms with garden views, large guests lounge, hot tub, & spa pool. Enjoy the homemade cookies, & the farmstyle breakfast. Super convenient to great restaurants in Ohakune, & a beautiful property set in the quiet countryside to relax. Definitely stay for a few nights, this a magical spot.
Just wow! What a beautiful place to spend some time away, I wish we could have stayed longer! Bernie an Marie were so welcoming which made the stay even more wonderful. Clean, modern and comfy rooms with everything you could possibly need with a touch of country charm. Definitely recommend to anyone an everyone I know, will be back for sure!
Our recent stay was amazing. Bernie and Marie made us feel really welcome right from the time we arrived to when we left. It was a weekend away for my wifes birthday and prior to arrival Bernie organised dinner at a local Italian restaurant and also a special birthday cake. Cant recommend highly enough. Safe secure parking also.
