Nice, clean, modern spacious rooms. Nice tidy complex with tasteful buildings and grounds. Very helpful and friendly managers who went out of their way to look after our group including offering a free shuttle service to take us to a local restaurant. Everything you need for an easy stay over in Ohakune.

Good reception. Everything we needed. Very comfortable beds. Well equipped kitchen. Everything to hand for a very comfortable stay. Including electric blankets if it should turn chilly. Exceptionally clean inside and out.

I liked most of it, except the sofa that can change into a bed. I found that a bit uncomfortable as a sofa. I found the unit, adequate for our needs. Liked the spa bath but unfortunately the spa pool was not operational. Nice location and friendly proprietors. Would stay again.

Property managers are very friendly and accomodating. Great sized room, very clean and comfortable, had everything we needed. It is the little things that make you feel welcome and for us it was having the generous bottle of milk for a tasty coffee in the morning when we woke up. Many thanks to the wonderful owners who made us feel...

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...

Thanks very much for your review, yes we are lucky to be so close to the Tongariro National Park, off the main road so it's nice and quiet, yet only 1 km to the village with all its cafes, supermarket,banks and other facilities. Perfect!
