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. If you book with us directly you can ask for a particular room and we will always do our best to... More

We spent two nights at The Peaks Motor Inn in December. The place is conveniently located at about 1 km from "downtown" Ohakune where theew is a New World grocery. We were very satisfied with the size and cleanness of the room as well as with the room's amenities (including the mini fridge). The picnic table in our "backyard" was... More

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
