Welcome to The Old Courthouse

  • Welcome! A real piece of Kiwiana and a great place to stay.

The Old Courthouse is located in Raetihi Just 10 minutes from base of Mt Ruapehu and the Turoa ski field. The building was previously the local courthouse, and was built after the Great fire of Raetihi in 1918 that destroyed the first courthouse along with the rest of the town.

The Courthouse has since been moved away from the main street onto a quaint hill on the outside of town. The building has had an extra floor built consistent with the character of the original building providing space for three additional guest bedrooms.

The Old Courthouse is a historically rich and welcoming place to stay and is the perfect place to make your base for your next skiing trip or any other adventure in the Ruapehu District.
