Have stayed here twice in the last 4months. Great grab one deals, ensuite rooms, no complaints about beds, rooms, hosts. Everything of a real good standard, especially for what we paid for our deals. Will be back again.

We arrived a little after 8 pm and the reception office was already closed, but we were able to talk with someone in charge through the intercom who explained where to find the key and the room. It turned out that our room was in the "backpackers" wing, meaning we had a small room for ourselves and shared common bathroom/toilet... More

Flash packers is the way to go. Grab One you are on to a winner here with these accommodation providers. Speed up and streamline the check in accuracy and clean up the recommended places to stay on Ohakune. Friendly, knowledgeable, helpful and travelled ownership. Value for money, beds perhaps a tad too hard for after Tongariro bones. Modern, clean, tidy... More

Just returned from a two night break to walk the Tongariro crossing and stayed at LKNZ lodge. We were lucky enough to pick up a grab one voucher and I have to say it was excellent value for money. Clean, modern, comfortable and relaxed, and a well earned opportunity to relax our aching bones in the hot tub after our... More

Our last trip to LKNZ at the turn of new year 2015 was a successful and economical as usual. During the stay I accidentally threw away some parts of my son's expensive Go-pro camera which were sitting in a bowl of rice after it got a soaking. We realised I had done this after we left and volunteered to come... More

We stayed here for one night in December. The staff was most welcoming and offered us great tips on hiking and local activities. The room with ensuite was a bit small, but enough for 4. The Mountain View from our balcony was stunning. The communal kitchen was good, with a large fridge and all the tools you need to make... More

Great overnight transit stop on way home from summer break. Friendly staff and guests. Would be a perfect weekend lodging for winter skiing break as central heating and double glazing look like you will be warm and dry at end of each day.

Modern property, tons of space, clean, nice and central, warm, and the staff were very helpful. Plenty of outdoor activities right on your doorstep e.g. Mountain biking, tongariro crossing and ski/snowboarding. Only negative would be the pillows were really hard.. possibly replace with softer ones..Highly recommend staying at LKNZ if you are planning a trip to Ohakune.
