Pity one of our girls slipped on rocks and broke her wrist (she didn't listen to instruction) on the last day so our last night at Snowy was a tad subdued, as expected, but so clean , warm and oh, such comfortable beds!! We have... More

We had an amazing stay at Snowy Waters!. Great interaction from Sandy, the owner and her wonderful staff. We were well looked after and we felt very welcome and at home! Sandy organised our river tour/bridge to nowhere and transport to and from Ohakune for the evening . Can highly recommend this stay. Will definitely go back there again.

I stayed at Snowy Waters as part of a large group. The lodge is an ex-hospital being converted; and has a nice rural feel to it despite being on the edge of town.

We stayed at Snowy Waters after finding it via Google search & what a find. We arrived late afternoon and was pleasantly surprised when shown to our room. A basic room with a comfortable double bed. The communal kitchen was well equipped with full size fridge, oven and dishwasher. A beautifully comfortable leather lounge suite in the tv room was... More

Snowy Waters Lodge and Sandy were just amazing throughout our entire stay. We came to the lodge as a school group. Right from the beginning, Sandy was very easy to work with, very flexible and understanding of our needs. She accommodated to everything that we needed and sorted out alternative options for us to ensure that we had an easy... More

Snowy Waters is fantastic! The team are amazing. It’s clean, warm and comfortable. It worked really well for our trip. We had a mixture of families and singles and it worked perfectly. Already planning our trip back!
