  • We had a peaceful stay and the bedrooms were done out nicely. The driveway was awful and one does have to have a 4x4 to reach the top where the house is. The dishwasher and dvd player need fixing. The kitchen needs a good clean. We were very disappointed and never like to complain but we would not be back. The caretakers were very friendly! thank you. 1

  • Good afternoon Michelle, Thank you for your feedback - We are some what perplexed. We are on call 24 hours and did not receive a call re dishwasher & DVD - they were both working when checked after your departure. Yes the driveway is reasonably steep - however hundreds of guests with small cars have no problem. A 4 wheel drive vehicle is not required. Many thanks The Hilltop crew

  • We loved the cottage, well appointed, cosy and so peaceful. Great stress reliever, although the first view does not do it justice. Great value for money and lovely people to welcome you . 5

  • We loved staying at the lodge. Very inviting, spotlessly clean, comfortable beds and beautiful bed linen. Lovely quiet and peaceful location and handy to all amenities and activities. The caretakers were wonderful. Highly recommended. We will be back during winter. 5

  • Nice place to stay and excellent value for money. Don't expect 5 star accommodation - it is homely and comfortable. We were is the cottage and not the larger lodge. Missed a couple of things - an oven (i know sounds weird but i had brought meals that needed to be finished in an oven and assumed there would be one.) and veggie peeler! surrounds are peaceful and the location is very central to other activities like bush walks, jet boating etc. . 5

  • Wonderfully lovely mornings, nice and quiet, surrounded by nothing but nature. The cottage itself was quite homey with all the furnishings of home. Deck outside could use a little cleaning and drive up the hill was not the best. . 5

Hilltop Ruapehu
  • We had a peaceful relaxing memorable stay. Les and jenny were very friendly and made us feel welcome. The drive to the cottage needs attention to make car friendly. Initial disappointment at the outside appearance and the need of some tlc ( unit not as clean as we would have appreciated it to be. Outside veranda full of dust and cobwebs - also some on ceiling of the inside of the cottage - edge of carpeting in the bedroom very dusty). However the views, tranquility and peacefulness more than made up for whatever , in our opinion, we thought needed attention. 5
