A huge thank you to Heather and Peter for a most enjoyable stay. The lodge is situated in beautiful grounds only a short drive from Ohakune. Our room was very comfortable with everything we needed. We also had a terrace with a sun lounger and chairs. Peter dropped us into town for dinner and then picked us up later for a small charge and Heather did some laundry for us. We thoroughly enjoyed the superb breakfast sharing the large table with the other guests. Heather and Peter were very helpful with their advice on the various sights and walks in the area. We would highly recommend the lodge.

It was our first visit to Ohakune and what a fantastic welcome we received from our hosts, Heather and Pete ! ( and adorable Ricky Martin too !) Ruapehu Country Lodge is beautiful, a real home from home, with lovely grounds backing onto a golf course. All the rooms are very comfortable and beautifully decorated. We stayed for 3 nights over the christmas holidays. Heather and pete looked after us perfectly, with superb breakfasts each morning, cooking us the best christmas dinner and being such incredible hosts !! Heather also arranged a pick up so we could get to walk the Tongariro Crossing. Pete made sure that the hot tub was kept warm so we could have a welcome dip with a cold beer !! It will definitely be a christmas none of us will forget !! Thanks once again Heather and Pete for a wonderful stay !!

Heather and Peter are great hosts, very helpful in every respect! They gave us a warm welcome and prepared a very early and a very good breakfast for our Tongariro Crossing tour. The special offer was their hot tub after the tour to relax :-) They recommended us a few restaurants in town as well as some suggestions what to do and where to eat for our further trip. In the evenings Peter dropped into the guest lounge and we had some evry interesting conversations with him and the other guests. The room was very comfortable, the B&B is situated in a quiet rural surrounding, with many animals around, a nice garden, only a few minutes into town. Thank you for this wonderful stay in your charming B&B!

Heather and Peter are great hosts. They made us a very early breakfast at 6.45 in order for us to be on time for the Tongariro alpine crossing. That evening they served a very good bbq, so that we could stay at their place after hiking the 19,5 km.
