My wife and I stayed here for a 4 days ski trip at Turoa. After searching through a number of properties we picked Manuka Lodge due to the consistent positive reviews by other. I am glad to say that we concur with the experience of the previous guests.
Alan and Susie, the owners of the lodge both have backgrounds in the hospitality industry in the UK and NZ. This is clearly evident in the standard they have set for Manuka Lodge, from the modern fit-out of the lodge to the service and support they provide to the guests.
The lodge is conveniently located within Ohakune, approximately 1-2 minutes from the main street, situated in a small court. It has 4 en-suite guest rooms in total. 2 downstairs and 2 upstairs. One of the downstairs room has been setup for disability / wheelchair access.
Their neighbor 2 doors down runs Manuka Natural Therapies which offers a remedial massage service for NZ$65/hr or NZ$35/30 min and is a great relieve for sore bodies at the end of a ski day. My wife and I have regular massages and would recommend the service of Manuka Natural Therapies. In addition, Manuka Lodge has a 6 person outdoor spa; Manuka Naural Therapies has Sauna facilities which is free to access for massage guests, or at NZ$12/hr.
The lodge offers Wi-Fi access. At the time of this visit access was free of charge.
My wife and I will be sure to stay here again on our next visit.
