Spent a couple of nights here over winter and found the motel clean and warm, with friendly and accommodating management. A great place to stay while skiing at Turoa. The rooms are spacious and the beds are comfortable. The motel had excellent facilities, everything you need including a spa pool, drying room, gym etc.

What savvy travellers you are, going off the beaten path and allowing time ( was it 4 or 5 days in the end?) to experience the Whanganui river trips and Tongariro National Park walks from here. So many visitors here say they wish they had allowed more time to do all these things, but are locked into an itinerary gleaned... More

Stayed here over Labour Week end for some end of season skiing. Was very impressed with the cleanliness and rooms were serviced daily. Lovely hot shower and the kitchenette was useful, although we didn't make use of the oven. We found it very quiet and had ranch sliders opening onto a grassy area. There were electric blankets on the beds... More

Thanks for your review and glad you got some spring skiing late in the season. We do also have a lot of people who tell us they love the beds: however they don't seem to be the ones who write the reviews. Them's the breaks I guess! More

Good clean and comfortable room with kitchen and dining area with spa bath (awesome) and beautiful hot shower- perfect after a day on the mountain with the kids. Great customer service, hosts happy to recommend family friendly meal options.

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...

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.

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
