Hilltop Ruapehu
  • Really enjoyed our weekend stay at this little piece of paradise. Close enough to town to be within walking distance yet far enough away to be so peaceful and quiet. I had the best 2 nights sleep i have had in a long time at the lodge. Really enjoyed the space and relaxation. Plenty of room for the kids (although we didn't bring them this time but will next time). As previously mentioned, it is a little deceiving from the outside but once inside, it feels like a home away from home. Thanks jen and les, we will be back. 5

  • We enjoyed our 3 night stay in the lodge - were to have stayed in the cottage, but as the lodge was empty we were upgraded so had plenty of room. Very well equipped - better than a motel - and lots of extras. Rather crowded furniture wise and the mats on the carpets could be a trap for the unwary. All very clean inside but exterior a bit rough and looked drab on a cloudy day. The drive up to the lodge difficult to negotiate. Very welcoming, friendly and helpful caretakers. 5

  • After a very stressful few months, andy & myself, bev, were more than ready for a wee get away. Wow wow wow what a wonderful place to stay. We met les at his house & he gave us the key to a little slice of heaven. We stayed at the cottage. From the outside, i must say, i was thinking "what have i picked here?" however, looks are so very very deceiving. Never more so than on this occasion. We opened the door & stepped into an adult "narnia". Loved it. So relaxing, peaceful & yet not far away was all you needed in the way of shops etc. We did some exploring, our favourite being the lavender garden, the pub along the old highway & the views along our adventures. The best thing was no hustle, bustle, ,time keeping, ,what to wear concern's in fact the first day we just chilled & didn't even get dressed. My mobile was quiet.....quite honestly, we don't want to share this treasure but it's too special not to share with other like minded people. Chill, feet up, gently unwind. Glorious xx. 5

  • Stayed for two nights in the cottage which had a relaxed feel and we settled in comfortably. Pleasant environment with peaceful rural surrounds facilities and amenities great bbq, beers and bush great combo. Only one initial gripe, did have to do a bit of tidying up on arrival and possibly left it in a better way when we left despite this enjoyed our stay and would return. Thanks for the enjoyable stay guys. 5

  • Les and jen very helpful and friendly. Enjoyed our stay and will return. Note that bbq needs replacement and that none of the advertised "preserves" were provided. Did appreciate the washing machine, dryer and dishwasher with provided soap. 5
