Great accommodation with lovely hosts. Facilities were good, nice comfy bed, no noise and plenty of room. I liked that there was parking available directly outside of my room so that I could easily haul my luggage to my room. There is quite a large step up to the room on the strip where I was staying, so if you... More

I'v been there for one night. Really clean and comfortable place. + for sauna and jacuzzi. I'v got room with kitchen and bath with jacuzzi mode. Minus for limited WiFi. Really enjoy my stay. The continental breakfeast is kinda cheap but there is option to upgrade it.

A family group of eight (spread across three rooms) can present challenges for some accommodation providers, not so here. Everything ran exactly as expected - transfers to the Tongariro Crossing were bang on time at both ends, all rooms were clean, comfortable and ready when they were supposed to be, and check in/out was a quick, pleasant experience. Whilst The... More

Thanks for your review. Yes, the Tongariro Crossing packages we run have been full on this summer as more and more people realise that Ohakune is a very good place to do it from. And we'd love to see you back here, there's lots more to do and see! More

Me and my partner came over from melbourne to do the tongariro crossing. We stayed 2 nights at the peaks and we were very happy with our room and the friendly staff. They do the little things well. Good beds, clean sheets/towels great coffee in the rooms and helpful staff. We loved our time there and would definitely stay again.

This is the perfect place to base yourself whether you are at Ohakune for winter or summer. The staff here are extremely welcoming and helpful. They can organise all sorts of activities to do in the immediate area but also other things that are nearby. They give great recommendations on what else to see and do around NZ, too. The... More

I was travelling with my sister and brother in law and needed just one night's accommodation. Found it difficult to find a unit to cater for request of separate sleeping area for me elsewhere. But booked on the day and found a clean, bright unit, a friendly, helpful hostess and a relaxing spa. Well worth the trip and reasonably priced!

The guys who run this are very welcoming, helpful and accommodating. My girlfriend and I stayed for 2 nights to do the Tongariro alpine crossing. The guys at the peaks are worth a call as they can organize the crossing for you. The accommodation is excellent and is a 10 minute walk into the town centre where there is a... More

We stayed one night at The Peaks Motor Inn as part of a family road trip through the North Island. The beds were comfortable and the service great- definitely one of the better motels out of the ones we visited. We received friendly advice on local walks and places to see and overall it was a very pleasant stay. I... More

Thanks very much for writing us a review. When we got here 5 yrs ago we put a cross trainer into the gym and added some free weights, but there really isn't enough floor space to add much more in. Its another facility that guests can utilise if they wish. And personally I agree with you: the Tongariro National Park... More

We spent two nights at The Peaks Motor Inn. Very pleased with the comfortable room and clean facilities. Pleasantly surprised by the free upgrade to a room with a built-in jacuzzi, which we thoroughly appreciated. Good location - a stone's throw away from the town centre and near the Mangawhero Trail, which offers a nice walk.

We stopped here overnight on the way back to Wellington recently. The motel is about a km away from the main street on Ohakune towards the mountain, just across the road from the Mangawhero Stream which was a very pleasant place to walk in the late afternoon and within walking distance of the mountain road and some fine native bush....

Thank you very much for your review. - One bedroom apartments do have a sofa and a lounge area, while studios do not, as you have observed. - We do have studios with walk in showers, which many prefer.
