Centrally located in the lower North island, this means Wellington city is never far away approximately 40 minutes by car or train, the airport is close at hand and should you wish collection/drop off this can be pre-booked.

The fabulous Kapiti coast is within easy driving distance and the Wairarpa wineries are a hop across the hills and you are right in the heart of some of the most famous vineyard's in the New World.

Thing to see and do:


I stayed at Arorangi Country B & B overnight when I was doing a 3 day Rimutaka trail cycling trip organised through Dave from 'Everyone's Adventures'. It was beautiful accommodation in a picturesque setting with a wonderful attentive host, Ann, and lovely home made food. I was fortunate to be able to use the movie room and relaxed after the bike ride by watching one of the Lord of the Rings movies. My bed was super comfy and the self contained room had everything I needed.

As I was travelling on my own, it was great to have support and interest from Ann, particularly as I was a bit unwell during the evening and overnight.

If you are looking for somewhere in the area to stay, book this property! I would definitely stay again if back in NZ. Highly recommend.


Ann was the most amazing host, making my family feel very special, attending to their every need, in her beautiful, well appointed accommodation. We all want to return again!! So we highly recommend Arorangi Country Homestay if you want a fabulous stay in Upper Hutt. Thanks Ann :-)


Lovely property, very quiet, easy to get into Wellington by train from Upper Hutt just a short drive away.


Awesome location, great room and check out the full in house cinema! Unreal!


Excellent hosts and excellent accommodation. Really enjoyed our stay. Highly recommend.
