Impressed with cleanliness and facilities on arrival. Friendly and helpful staff. We really enjoyed the spa under the stars and comfy beds. Well heated rooms with no noise disturbances when sleeping. We were well rested after our stay. Oven wouldn't work but staff went out of the way to accommodate us and we received compensation in the end.

Have stayed here twice before, loved it the first two times but on our third time coming here we were a little disappointed. Im not sure what there policy is on dishes, but it might pay to check that the people before hand have washed the dishes properly before you let other guests into the room after them. The cutlery...

Hi, Thank you for taking the time to post a review of our property. In response to your comments - we do check all rooms before guests arrive and we can't think how this has happened, as we have high expectations and standards of cleaning and presentation. We would have liked to have had it brought to our attention at... More

Stayed here after checking out trip advisor reviews. Room was certainly clean & tidy on arrival. Shower was great! Heater in the room could not keep up with heating the room so it wasn't really very warm. Be aware the walls are quite thin & you an pretty much hear your neighbours conversation, also you get road noise if you... More

Hi, Hope you find somewhere more suited to your liking on your next visit to Ohakune although most of the others are closer to State Highway 49 than we are. Everywhere, us included, will be quieter (and warmer) when it's not the height of the ski season i.e August/Sept. In response to your points raised, our heaters have 2 settings... More

Had everything we needed including a large spa bath for the aching body after a day on the mountain! A spare bed was provided for my son who joined us during our... More

My twin and I stayed at the Peaks last week and really enjoyed the experience. The owner was really helpful and made our stay. The grounds at the Peaks are beautifully manicured and the accommodation very clean and had everything we could want. My sister's son joined us and the one bedroom was perfect for the three of us.

This apartment had everything, including a Spa Bathtub, but the heating was pathetically inadequate. The apartment was cold when we arrived and never really got up to a normal room temperature. We had to turn the heating off overnight, because it was too noisy to allow sleep. So then in the morning the temp was freezing again -- literally! The... More

Hi, Most of our guests seem perfectly happy with the heaters but who knows? maybe they bring warmer clothing better suited to to this alpine climate. However to address your comments: Yes, this is a remote alpine town which provides challenges both with its winter climate and its electrical supply -meaning that just putting in bigger heaters is not really...

A very friendly and informative lady greeted us. The peaks motel is a beautiful motel with a lovely outdoor spa and indoor spa options. Wonderful warm place. The kitchen facilities were very clean and so was the spacious bathroom. We loved the heated blankets! Would definitely recommend :)
