This appears to be fairly new. Our room was well appointed, spacious and very comfortable. You can see the volcano from the large rear window. Each unit has a picnic table outside. Several restaurants are in easy walking distance.

Well maintained units and at a good price. Great view of the mountain too. Not too far to walk to town (approx. 900m), but a little rough on the way back to motel, if you know what I mean! The town itself could do with a taxi service of some description, but with the help of a friendly local we...

Nice, clean, modern spacious rooms. Nice tidy complex with tasteful buildings and grounds. Very helpful and friendly managers who went out of their way to look after our group including offering a free shuttle service to take us to a local restaurant. Everything you need for an easy stay over in Ohakune.

I liked most of it, except the sofa that can change into a bed. I found that a bit uncomfortable as a sofa. I found the unit, adequate for our needs. Liked the spa bath but unfortunately the spa pool was not operational. Nice location and friendly proprietors. Would stay again.

Property managers are very friendly and accomodating. Great sized room, very clean and comfortable, had everything we needed. It is the little things that make you feel welcome and for us it was having the generous bottle of milk for a tasty coffee in the morning when we woke up. Many thanks to the wonderful owners who made us feel...

This was a delightful place to stay. Everything from the large size of the room,with a kitchenette so we could have our own breakfast, to the laundry room (just the right point in our trip to need to do laundry). Very close to one of the entrances to Tongariro NP. A very pleasant walk into the center of town for...
