We froze as there were no extra blankets and all the bed had on it was a sheet and a skinny little synthetic cover on it.It was winter when we stayed. Smoke alarms were open with no batteries. The bathroom is just a hallway off the bedroom, so you are stuck in the bedroom if someone is in the shower.... More

This was my second visit. The first visit we were thoughtfully put in a back unit so the trucks leaving early in the morning wouldn't (and didn't) disturb us. Appreciated the thoughtfulness. On the second visit we were on the ground floor. We heard every footstep and conversation above us. Not particularly restful. The room wasn't very clean and the... More

This is a real truckers stop. Was perfect for us, we were there with one of our racing teams so there was plenty of room for the buses & trailers. The rooms are in need of a little bit of decorating but for the $$ it wasn't really needed for us. It is in the middle of nowhere but that... More

We stayed at The Country Inn at Ramarama for our last two nights in New Zealand. The room was the most expensive we had stayed in throughout our NZ visit, and was listed as a 'premium' room, so I was anticipating comfortable stay. This is the first tripadvisor review I have written which reports a disappointing stay. On our arrival... More

Whilst in Drury we drove to Ramarama to the Country Inn for an evening meal. They seemed bemused to have English people there and were very friendly. Although we had not booked and they had a pre-Christmas party taking place, they found us a quiet area to sit and we had an enjoyable meal which was reasonably priced.

A true gem of a restaurant. Having a amazing dining experience is not always about going to one of NZs top restaurants. A truckie friend was staying here so we decided to meet up for dinner. YUMMY!!!! Service was friendly and fun. Food was beautiful (try the steak). Finishing with the sticky date pudding that made you go Ahhhhh. Well... More

We have just returned back home from the Ramarama Country Inn Restaurant. We decided to try it out tonight as we are locals and saw a decent write up on our local paper. Food and service were faultless, excellent food, excellent quality and great presentation. We will return son with family and friends. Keep it up guys. Barry
