We are a family of 5 with 3 children under 13. Stayed here for two nights in August, while on a Ski holiday. The property is conveniently located, a short walk from several restaurants, bars and the supermarket. The room was spotless and reasonably well equipped for the price. Since we had the family apartment, which is round the back,... More

Two groups of us stayed here in August. The apartment was spotless and most importantly very warm. We had everything we needed and the drying room was great too. The manager was very helpful and we have booked again to stay in a few weeks. We booked well in advance and it was very reasonable. The bus picked us up... More

Our unit was smallish, partly as there was an extra single bed in the room. Bathroom was well designed and up to date. Wifi coupons worked well, although I needed a second one for our overnight stay. I think they are 100mb each, but they are complimentary. TV channels seemed limited. A pleasant no hassle stay, but not luxurious. I... More

Stayed here with my wife and daughter in January. The room was very basic and extremely hot even though the weather outside was only mild. Whilst advertised as being able to accommodate five adults, our room could barely fit two adults and a child. Not sure where the extra people would stay. Probably adequate for 20-somethings going skiing, but not... More

The best about this place was the host Lynn. She picked me up at the bus stop and took me to the railway station (which is quite far) at the end of my stay. Originally I wanted to do the Tongariro Alpine Crossing, but due to some very bad weather I had to give up this idea. Lynn then suggested... More

My partner and I arrived into a wet and windy Ohakune at 9pm after driving from Wellington- our host Lynn was absolutely a gem and was so helpful. When checking in, she discovered a free room so upgraded us to the next room :) We stayed at the back of the motel and had a great night's sleep- electric blanket,... More

We were very happy with the quality of our room and the house, and the host Lynn was very friendly and helpful. We had a queen sized bed in our room that was very comfortable, and the ensuite was new and had a great shower. The two fireplaces in the house gave it a nice cosy atmosphere, and all the... More
