Our Forest and Bird group stayed here at Easter weekend, and thoroughly enjoyed the friendly atmosphere, great hosts, good clean facilities, comfortable beds and bunks, and good location. The complementary hot scones were much appreciated. We visited the adjacent interesting railway museum, sat in the spa pool, and hired bikes and used the shuttle service to Horopito. So plenty to do in the area, beautiful walk or ride back to Ohakune from Horopito. The kitchen is spotless, nice view of the mountain, the hotel has good environmental policies, so good to see a compost bucket on the bench going firstly to feed the chickens then into the compost, recycling etc. Because we cooked as a group the kitchen was probably a bit stretched at times, especially as other guests were trying to cook as well, and seating could be limited for a larger group, but overall this is a very good place to stay.
