Location / Nearby The Old Courthouse B&B
Number of rooms
The Old Courthouse B&B is located in Raetihi just 10 minutes from base of Mt Ruapehu and Turoa Ski field and 30 minutes from National Park. Raetihi is the perfect place for a variety of year round activities including skiing, fishing, hiking, biking, kayaking and golf. The old courthouse has 3 very comfortable rooms and a warm, cosy main lounge which was once the actual courtroom.
Hidden Gem (I know that’s a cliche, but... )
A quiet, peaceful, restored historic building situated among shady trees a couple of minutes out of Raetihi; my daughter and I loved our stay at this warm, welcoming, and spotless B&B. The room rate we paid was amazingly affordable; the combination of a great room and shared bathrooms worked well for us. And not only was the breakfast hearty; the breakfast conversation was really interesting! We had a wonderfully peaceful, comfortable sleep. Free WiFi and on-site parking topped it off. Raetihi is only 10 minutes from Ohakune. I think we’d now always choose to go there. Our host was so welcoming and open; a really special person. Quite apart from the historic courthouse, spending time with our hosts was a big part of what made our stay memorable. If you’re ever tempted to spend a couple of hundred dollars for a room in Ohakune, save your money and come to a better place in Raetihi. …
Best accomodation & hospitality!
Stayed here for a Saturday night in August to ride the next day. We arrived late and they were very accommodating & friendly. House was super cosy, good amenities and the cooked breakfast sunday morning was amazing!! Best thing to prepare you for the day! Will definitely be back!! Highly recommend :)
A pleasure to stay here
Located on the edge of Raetihi village, it's convenient for local walks and only 25 minutes' drive from National Park village and Whakapapa. The building is an old courthouse almost 100 years old, and is atmospheric and well-kept. Same for the room - full of character, with all modern conveniences. The WiFi works well, the bed is comfortable, it's quiet. The lounge is heated in the evening with a wood-burning stove.Your host Mika is superb - attentive, friendly, flexible. A breakfast (either bacon & eggs or a continental) is included and sets you up for the day. One of the nicest places to stay in NZ, highly recommended.
my partner and brother stayed here on june 22nd and were greeted by a lovely lad who offered them a cheaper deal as one of their friends had pulled out of the trip.the price was very good as it was $240 for 3 adults in 2 rooms and the boiz ended up sharing one room at $75each and this was good for the mardi gra w.e where there is no accomadation any near ohajune lol.she then showed them around and they said this place was beautiful and the views were amazing.the room was warm and comfy and the breakfast was just what they needed after a late night out.thank you to the staff here for looking after my partner and my brother i will be booking here again soon????
