Booked in here via the local Isite in Ohakune for one night, got quoted 1 price from Isite and then a dearer price from reception on phone due to 2 night minimum on the weekend. One night is better than nothing! Place was very basic, 1 spoon for 2 people seems a bit silly. When you're down stairs the Spa...

We stayed here for 4 nights and were a little dubious about booking from reading previous reviews on here. We were greeted by friendly staff we put that we would be arriving early (check in is at 2 and I believe the staff don't arrive until then) they came at 1 for us, we called to say we had arrived...

Stayed 1 night here with the family & can't fault the place. Warm, comfortable & great value for money. Perfect place for families visiting the Ruapehu area. The queen bed in the lounge & 3 beds in the separate bedroom suited us perfectly.

Go there early, don't be late otherwise getting the key is difficult, especially when you give your contact details way in advance. The views are from the balcony and not from the room itself. It does have a sauna and laundry facilities.

Although this motel is quite basic it had everything we needed for our one night stay. We had an upstairs room with a magnificent view of Mt Ruapehu where we relaxed on the balcony having a quiet drink soaking in the view. It was a short stroll to the restaurant area and there were quite a few to choose from....

Booked this over the phone on the Friday morning for one night stay on Saturday night. Was advised that although they have a 2 night minimum day policy that as it was late notice that they could accommodate our family of four. We then cancelled other accommodation that we had tentatively booked and arranged the rest of the trip including...

Pleasant stay, nice and quiet. The rooms are basic but very clean and comfortable. After a day on the mountain we loved a soak in the hot tub. The hotel is located about five minutes walk to the town centre. Reception was very welcoming and friendly. They went out of their way to accommodate our needs. I would definetely stay...

This is a very basic motel, nothing extra is supplied in the rooms, no soap for the hand basin, no extra blankets or pillows and we could have done with them with a -5 degree frost! The room was clean. The very inefficient heater was also a pain as it was on a timer. We went out for dinner expecting...

This was a great, no fuss hotel to stay at. It is small, tidy and clean. It has everything you need, no more than that. Very quiet so we slept well. Beds would not suitable for heavy people I must say. It is perfect if you are just staying a long weekend and are going to be out and about...
