Great staff and accommodation! It is a nice place to stay at and close to mt ruapehu. There are beautiful bike tours to do around ohakune (you can hire bikes in-house). Also the tongariro crossing is close and the shuttle pics you up in front of the lodge. Would definitely recommend it!

Beautiful location, right at the foot of Mt Ruapehu. The staff are really friendly and great to help you organise any trips you want to do. Like advising the best day weather wise, to do the tongariro crossing was a big help for me! Beds and comfy and everywheres very clean :) Dont forget to see The Carrot!! Thanks Martin... More

Amanda and Fat Martin have created a fantastic atmosphere here at LKNZ. There's rooms for all budget types and you can meet all sorts of people. The staff make sure you know all the best parts and get the best deals around Ohakune. The rooms are clean and the social areas are great for meeting people if you're travelling alone.... More

My girl friend and I had come down from Auckland to have an enjoyable weekend. 1st night after skiing we were very excited to use the hot tubs, Upon arrival we were told that the hot tubs were an extra cost of $5 p/person. We had spent already $230 for two night to stay at this place and thought it... More

We are sorry you didn’t fully enjoy your stay and the weather didn’t allow you ski both days. When you came down at 6.30pm the staff member working at the time was starting to close up, however he did reopen the hot tubs just for you and you decided not to use them. The manager you rang at 6.45pm also... More

We stopped here on route from Taupo to Wellington. We had just completed the tongariro crossing. Staff were nice. We checked in and used the hot tubs straight away and relaxed with a beer. Nice accommodation in nice village.

This hotel/backpackers is great value for money. We stayed in one of the rooms above the reception. Very clean and comfortable. We were not there for the snow but had a wonderful time in Ohakune. Would recommend to anyone on a budget.

After some deliberation I settled on LKNZ. This was a great choice. The room was clean and well stocked. It was conveniently located to the mountain and in easy walking distance to town (and great pizza at Mizzoni Woodfired Pizza!) I'd stay again in a heartbeat.
