Manuka Lodge and Ohakune are great! Our guide books didn't say much about Ohakune and it seems that it is mainly a ski town, but there is certainly much more to do than just ski. The town of Ohakune is incredibly charming. My husband and I also got to do many beautiful walks in the mountains. We hiked up to Waitonga Falls, did a few walks at the base of mountain where there are some amazing rain forests. There is also so much more we didn't have time to do.
Manuka Lodge is a great home base while near the Tongariro National Park. Alan and Susie were very accomodating to our schedule and needs. We planned to do the Tongariro Crossing while staying with them, they were a perfect access point for the walk and also helped coordinate lunch for us. Susie was great about helping us find activities to do in Ohakune and even laid out breakfast for us on the early morning we left for the Crossing.
Can't say enough good things about their incredible hospitality. It was one of the nicest places we stayed on our holiday through New Zealand.
