We (2 couples) stayed there for 2 nights in a one bedroom suite (room number 5, ground floor) and I found it quite comfortable and cozy. As a Motel, it has a free parking so you can park your car right behind the room which is making it easy to get to the car specially in winter and cold weather.... More

Our family of 4 recently stayed in a 1 bedroom unit upstairs for a ski weekend. We always look for places that are self contained to allow us to have breakfast in, but did not expect to be picnicking on the floor as there was no table and washing dishes in the bathroom basin as there was no kitchen sink....

Stayed in a 5 bed unit and every problem we had the staff dealt with in a very unconcerned, blase manner. Absolutely hopeless. One of the beds electric blankets did not work and no extra blankets were provided which made for a very chilly night. Heater, hot water jug (anything electrical) were on the same wall as TV and could... More

Room was ok but basic. No breakfasts offered but there are cafes within walking distance. Very laid back motel offering nothing extra. Reception could do with more training but guess they only bother when its busy season. Be a good place to stay when going skiing but other than that wouldn't stay again for the price.

We were here for three nights in late March, out of the ski season. We stayed in a studio unit which was clean and comfortable but minimally furnished. For example, there were no shelves in the bathroom for toilet bags and no heater either - it must be chilly in winter. There was no hot water one night because the... More

Booked 2 nights - first night was like orientation week downstairs with other guests partying. No intervention by management. No reasonable offer to address the issue by the owner for the second night so moved to another motel.

Ruapehu Views is very clean and comfortable. It's 2 bedroom set-up has a double bed and bunks in a separate room. The lounge has a large settee and TV. The kitchen is small, but large enough to cook breakfasts - make lunches etc... but probably not well-equipped enough for a large evening meal. We stayed here as a base for... More

We stayed in a 2 bedroom family room, the unit was nice and clean but VERY basic. Being out of season there were only us in the motel, no staff were on site only a phone call away and very helpful (if you have a mobile)
