We stayed in the shared accomodation backpackers lodge as a base for going up to the snow. The managers were friendly and easy going. There are plenty of bunk beds and it's very affordable. There's a nice big lounge, dining area and kitchen. I only saw one toilet and one shower but as we were there during the week that...

A very cozy two bedroom apartment. Very comfortable, relaxing, stunning view of mountain. The managers were very accommodating of our wishes and made us feel at home. We decided we were so happy we extended our stay.

This is a review of the cabins at Rimu Park Lodge. The Lodge provides a range of accommodation from dorm beds with shared bathroom/kitchen, to apartments, as well as renovated railway carriages. I can only comment on the cabins. The cabins are not separate freestanding buildings but are adjacent rooms in a row in the same building. This means that...

The place is very comfortable, with a very well equipped kitchen, handicap bathroom, cozy living room, and heaters in the bedrooms. You cannot ask for a better place. Right next to town and with a ski rental place very close by it. Good call if you want to disconnect and enjoy a simple life style with friends, family or by...

We came to Ohakune for a couple days and had an amazing stay at Rimu Park Lodge! It started off with a warm welcome from the staff and continued with a cozy room where we could unwind after a day at the mountain. The location was great offering close access to the mountain and a good range of restaurants. It...

An awesome place run by awesome people- The lodge was tidy, welcoming and great value. It's not far from town and easy to navigate to, plus the kitchen comes with everything you need. Our hosts were accommodating and friendly, you couldn't go wrong there. We were a large group and pleased with the housing situation. Totally worth the stay!

I've stayed here a few times now, each time in the Carriages. Summer was a bit hot, winter was pretty cold.. Funny that .. Easter... The ideal time to visit Ohakune. The weather is great, there are quite a few other families here, but not over crowded like mid ski season. The carriage is a great (and cheap) place to...

We stayed in the 3 bedroom apartment. The rooms were great and beds very comfy. The kitchen had everything we needed. We found the location convenient with a couple of restaurants nearby. The shuttle service to Tongariro was excellent and we really appreciated the friendly service considering our late check in.
