Escape the busy world…

Need a night away?  Romantic weekend?

A wedding anniversary or birthday idea?

Or just a chill out spot away from the busy world?

Retreat to the Taupiri Ranges and stay in four star comfort with stunning views over the Waikato and beyond.

Hillside Hotel offers a tranquil escape, fresh air and great food.

Original art work by Meryl Graham throughout the resort.

Strong Art & Crafts influence on the décor are a real feature of Hillside.

Meryl has drawn inspiration from traditional celtic themes, images from the Hillside landscape and the work of Charles Rennie Mackintosh and Margaret MacDonald.

Relax and enjoy eyefuls of iconic New Zealand landscape scenery.Rosemary walking the rangi track

Bush walk – or just admire from your room.

The hotel is situated in a 300 acre private conservation reserve within the 2300 acre Hillside Station.

Options for all levels of interest/fitness/available time. Reception has copies of Guidebooks on native flora and fauna to enhance your walk.

Take a stroll around the grounds using the paths at the end of each deck. Paths are edged by native bush and, with luck, you may also see Tui and other native birds during the day or Moreporks (the native owl) at night. Keep an eye out for the large, lime-green Puriri Moth in season – unique to New Zealand. Enjoy the atmosphere in the “Wedding Dell” off Level Four.

Occasional Artist-in-Residence Weekends. Watch this space for dates for our planned “Occasionals” – weekend residencies by established and up-and-coming artists from a variety of fields. (If you met our inaugural Artist-in-Residence during a previous stay, or you would like to check out her work, please visit Gold Moon’s home page.)
