We stayed in Ohakune for a couple of days in December. December is likely the quiet time for this part of the country which sees a lot more action in the ski season. So the town was a bit quiet and lonely. However that meant we didn't have to wait anywhere for service :) The folks at Peaks Motor Inn...

This motel is set up to provide accommodation to the skiing community. As motels go, this pretty much does what it says on the tin. It's a basic and no-frills motel - they still provide sachets of shampoo and the tea and coffee is cheap rubbish that I wouldn't give to my worst enemy! The last time I saw shampoo...

Hi Thanks for your review. We are in the throes of selling/packing up, as well as managing the summer avalanche of bookings at the moment, so we are currently a bit stretched, sorry. The new owners will take over in late January and I'm sure the incoming gentleman will have a very good customer service skill set. However I take...

Located very close to the restaurant area, very spacious room and very clean. Service was very friendly and did very good recommendations for restaurants. It is a very small town but very nice for an intermediate stop. They also have sky system therefore a lot of sports programs and movies were available.

My Husband was running in the annual mountain Goat race so this hotel was very conveniently located for us and at a reasonable rate. On arrival in reception we were quickly checked in and offered lots of wonderful information to help with our stay. We had a one bedroom unit for 2 nights @ NZ$145 per night. There was ample...

Thanks for this very thorough review and we hope to see you again. Actually we opened the spa pool early that day (12pm) especially for the Goats. The laundry was probably opened about the same time, a bit late sorry, but people were definitely washing in there in the afternoon. Of course you can always ask us to open it....

We came to Okahune for the Tongariro crossing. After a strenuous research, I chose this place due to highly positive ratings and fair price. The place gives a real feeling of a family-run business with a quiet and cosy atmosphere. The family room we have was clean and good for the price. The shower is hot and strong. It also...

Thanks for your comments, we really enjoyed meeting you all in spite of the circumstances and were pleased that you resolved the problem so quickly - in spite of the rental car company.

Stayed here with a bunch of friends and I was really impressed with the place and would want to stay for a few more nights. The beds are cozy, the small kitchen in our room got everything you'll need and more. We didn't get to try the spa pool but maybe next time. This motor inn is also very close...

The owners are lovely people, friendly and obliging. The rooms are a good size, clean and the beds are so comfortable. The motel is handy to town only a 15 minute walk, great distance to walk after a fab dinner in town. Lots of parking and it is quiet. Continental breakfast available. Would definitely stay again.
