The best views of the mountains you can have with a glass of wine in hand. Relax and enjoy a night or two in the Chateau

Nice place to chill before and after dinner in the adjoining Ruapehu room. Has a bar and the waiter remembered me from the previous night so knew what I wanted. The guy playing the piano added to the atmosphere. Lovely spot. Wouldn’t rate the bar food menu though. I had the pate which consisted of 2 small pieces of toast with 2 big lumps of pate on top... and some lettuce... give that a miss

We stayed one night at the hotel - and have happy memories of sitting in deep comfy chairs with high backs, beautiful views, drinking good wine and then opting to have a snack instead of an evening meal. Finished with an hours read of our kindles. My lasting memory is of the chairs and the delightful staff. All doing their overseas travel - and just delightful.

My husband and I had drinks here before dinner at the Ruapehu Room. They were delicious, but very expensive. The atmosphere and ambiance were great with a piano player and the views can't be beat.
