We had a fantastic stay with our family at Arawa Lodge. Cozy, clean and comfortable. Jo made us feel very welcome. Great breakfasts to start the day before heading up the mountain. Hopefully we'll be back in the summer with our mountain bikes!

There are 2 bathrooms each containing a single toilet and shower so for 40 odd people make sure you take a good book and don't get caught short. I had to resort to siting on a chair outside the door so I could get... More

Our favourite place to stay in Ohakune. Jo is so lovely and super accommodating!! Always makes sure you're comfortable and happy, and the lodge is such a great environment to be in! Even better is the amazing breakfast you wake up to in the morning- perfect start to the day before heading up the hill- and makes life easy too!... More
