We had one night stay here with a family of 5. The apartments is very comfortable, clean and spacious. The location is great, very close to supermarkets, and has great view of Mount Ruapehu. very near to big carrot landmark too. Overall, we are happy with this place and recommend to visitors especially those with family! The bonus point was,... 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

My wife and I stayed here at their B&B. Lynn was a gracious and wonderful host. Comfortable beds, and amazing breakfast. Get the French toast and bacon! Great common areas including a big screen, pool table, and ping pong table. Good location in between the mountain and center of town.

There are different types of accomodation offered at Snowhaven. We stayed in the Superior Family Apartment 8. It was an open plan room with a queen bed, single bed & a pull out sofa (which we didn't use) So, no separate bedroom but it worked well for us as we were one family on a budget. We had a lovely...
