Would highly recommend Novotel. I stayed there for 3 weeks a few years back and their room is very nice and right by the lake side (within walking distance to town center)

I have stayed at Millbrook Resort and Nugget Point Hotel, both very nice and just outside Queenstown, but I have a rental car. In Queenstown, I stayed at Rydges.

I just booked Distinction Queenstown Nugget Point and starting to get a bit nervous about it. How long does it take to drive to the Coronet Peak, the Remarkables and Queenstown?
It seems rather isolated and I'm slightly worry about we'll be getting cabin fever spending way too much time together.

I have a River View Suite overlooking the Shotover River valley (http://www.nuggetpoint.co.nz/). The hotel is just outside Queenstown, away from the shops and tourists.

Thanks. I guess that's very nice then.
Not very sure how excited I should get about the upcoming trip for I'm worried about getting disappointed. In my memory: Queenstown was absolutely stunning, the Remarkables was really exciting (my first time seeing snow), people were friendly, roads were wide and in easy driving condition... Kind of worry that my expectation will get too high.

Hello all,

Any top tips for a trip to the north island hills? Will be driving down from auckland and stay for 4 days.

Heard nz ski access roads are not the greatest. Can anyone comment on the situation on these hills?

Strong northenly winds are forecast later in the week, am i correct that turoa would be a better choice on those days because it is on the south side?

Is Tukino worth a visit?

Recommendations on accomodations? For whakapapa, is it worth to pay double to stay at the village vs off the hill at nat park or turangi?

Thanks for your help

I have been to Ruapehu for skiing twice before (to NZ 6 times in 8 years). Driving from Auckland is simple, roads are as good as anywhere in any developed countries. You will probably need chains to go up the mountain unless you have 4WD (there will be check point up there to enforce the chains requirement when the requirement is in force).

Weather can change quickly, so is the wind direction. Whakapapa and Ohakune is about 20 minutes drive distance away, so it doesn't matter much where you want to be based.

Grand Chateau in Whakapapa is the place to stay, I stayed there twice, great place to stay. My friends stayed at Skotel, the hotel nearby, which is slightly cheaper and more casual. If you opt to stay at Ohakune, Powderhound Chateau is probably the best there (I have also stayed there before).

The Grand Chateau and Powderhound Chateau's room rate is about the same. But I found the rooms at the Grand Chateau better and more spacious. If you have one of the rooms in the main building facing the front, the view is magnificent. Having said that the restaurant in the Grand Chateau is definitely the most pricey in the area.

Skotel, which is round the corner from Grand Chateau is cheaper, the rooms are smaller and more basic, but they are fine. Food in the restaurant is good and reasonably priced. Very friendly.

I guess the hotels at National Park are cheaper.

Be prepared for the adverse weather, if the lifts are closed due to the weather, you can always go hiking. There are many trails, very scenic. I only managed to ski for couple of days in a week both times I went skiing in Ruapehu. As I said - the walks are nice.

Drive to Whakapapa/ruapehu is really easy. just follow state highway 1 to taupo and turn right after Turangi you will get to whakapapa. But beware of icy road in early morning. I had a crash just off Turangi due to black ice

Access road for whakapapa and turoa is actually very nice. What people say about the not so great access road to resort are down in south island. if you dont want to drive up there are shuttle avaliable in Whakapapa (no chain hire there) and Turoa has chain hire at the bottom of access road if the snow report indicate you need one.

Turoa is end to stay firm for loner because its facing south. Whakapapa is also good, less people and less wind effected.

Tukino is a small club field located on the east side of the mountain. It is very troublesome to get to and the access road is 4wd only.

Probably worth looking at accmondation @ national Park, Turangi is very far (40 min drive to whakapapa, add another 35 min to Turoa) and Chateau is one of the most expensive place to stay in the area. if you want to stay in Ohakune Powderhorn Chateau is very nice and @ the bottom of Turoa access road http://www.powderhorn.co.nz

Hope it helps.

sorry typo lol

Turoa tend to stay a little firmer in the morning because of the geographical localion facing south.

Ski in/out is not common in New Zealand. Generally everyone stay at the bottom of the hill and drive up. in Powderhorn chateau's case its a 15 min drive up turoa (Located at the bottom of access road)

I believe Cardrona is the only resort in NZ that offers ski-in ski-out accommodation.

Hello again everyone,

Now planning a trip to the Mt Hutt/Craigieburn region for August. Any suggestions for accommodation or just in general? Tentative plan is to do Mt.Hutt for 1-2 days (based Methven?), then head off to some of the club fields in the region (looking to sample a few hills - so might base off mountain - Flock Hill Lodge? or Springfield? Any other suggestions?)

Looking forward to being humbled by the nutcrackers!
