One of the highpoints of our trip to New Zealand was doing the spectacular Tongariro Crossing in perfect weather. The delightful and brilliant manager at the Peaks Motor Inn had it all arranged for us when we arrived. He treated us like welcomed friends, and made sure we were armed with all the information we needed for the Crossing and... More

The room was spotless clean and very spacious, and so was the bathroom. The hot tub is great for relaxing after having spent the day hiking the Tongariro Crossing. The kitchen is well equipped, you will everything you need for breakfast. Ohakune is a nice village, offering plenty of restaurants, etc.

Thanks for pointing out that this is a good base for doing the Tongariro Crossing from. We have had many years of people arriving here after doing it and wishing they had stayed here or in Ohakune first. From Ohakune there are still many other things to do and see afterwards - and good restaurants too. We are only 900... More

Good bedrooms but nothing too special but very clean and quite spacious. Would recommend staying in Ohakune as it is such a beautiful little mountain town. Good value for money this motel. Only weird experience was that we had locked out door from the inside and our neighbour from next door (who had a bit too much to drink) was... More

Hi, thanks for your comments - although it would have been really helpful if you had told us about the door while you were here, as we have just had all the locks upgraded and we could have immediately referred it back to the locksmith for checking. To date we've haven't had any security issues, but thank-you for bringing it... More

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

Thanks very much for your review; yes the step up into the rooms is designed to keep the snow out in winter. We have 3 access rooms with a ramped step instead. 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.

Thanks for reviewing us. -Wifi is 30 minutes for free, 2 hours for $5 or $10 for 24 hours. Most people find that 30 mins is enough, as they are busy out doing the walks and trips here.

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!
