It has the most amazing hosts, they are so friendly and totally accommodated our every need. Our room was spotless, beautifully located with views of the mountains. Very reasonably priced. Already planning our next holiday there.

We had the one bedroom unit with spa bath. Was big enough for the 3 of us. Husband loved the spa bath. Was very clean and the beds comfy, with electric blankets. Bathroom was big too. Only comment was the heating was very noisy and a little annoying but at this time of year couldn't do without! Host was very...

At the end of April we stayed at The Peaks for two nights. The rooms were well maintained and super clean. Our hosts are incredibly friendly, they were knowledgeable about what to do in the area and helpful with our requests. Very professional yet laid back. Super comfy beds too!

Comfy unit with adequate kitchen dining table could have been bigger as the bench space was small. Bright and sunny, bathrooms large with good shower. Great parking and outdoor area for soaking up the sun. had a glimpse of the mountain from our room

Really comfy place, everything we needed. Beds were great, lots of space in the lounge and bathroom. Hosts went above and beyond sorting our stay out, such great service ! Close to the township and other shops

Great place to stay. New managers that are very friendly and helpful. Clean comfortable rooms with free wifi. Quiet rooms that are great when you dont want road noise. Great views of the mount. Ideal place to stay if travelling to the snow fields.

A modern, clean motel fifteen minutes walk from Ohakune main street. Sound insulation between the rooms could be better as I spent one night listening to the murmur of next doors TV. There were three beds in my studio room and only three main items of crockery and cutlery, spoons, forks, plates, mugs etc which smacks of parsimony. The cancellation...

Dear Guest Thanks for choosing The Peaks for your recent stay and sharing your experience. As you have mentioned about cancellation fee. Since you made bookings for 5 nights at a very special price and decided to leave after 3 nights stay. We already waived you one nights cancellation and charged (reluctantly) one night's tariff only. If you would have...

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...
