Nice clean motel, good facilities, great views. Loved the outdoor spa which looks at the mountains. Good kitchenette and spacious living area. Friendly and helpful staff. A nice distance from the main part of town, so very quiet and peaceful.

Beautiful clean room with a full kitchen! After traveling on the road for 10 days it was great to cook a meal in our room. Bed the best we had slept on in our travels, soft, warm so comfortable. Bathroom roomy and with all facilities you need. Lovely outside sitting area with lawn and views to the mountains. Walking distance...

Thanks for such a descriptive review, and the comment on the beds: they are an upgrade on the usual motel beds which many people comment favourably on to us. We installed a new VDSL wifi system in March which seems to be working well, no complaints so far, so I presume you were here before that as we don't have...

The room was spotless and the bathroom was very clean and fresh. Bedding was spotless and the kitchen had all the essentials. The paintwork was in a very good state throughout-not tired or scratched as you often find in motels. The spa was basic but did the job, and spa towels were provided. Good location. The owner could have been...

Thanks very much for your review, we would love to see you again and promise to be a bit more cheerful by then, as we are taking regular breaks after this extremely busy summer.

I booked this motel attracted by the 'mountain views from all rooms' and a mention by a reviewer of a cooked breakfast being served in the room, Oh, and the spa poor. We got there late because of a crash on the Taupo road which left us queuing for two hours. Altho I had phoned ahead, there was no one...

thepeaks010, Owner at The Peaks Motor Inn, responded to this review

Many of the points you have raised are simply not true. - We have never advertised 'mountain views from all rooms", only from some. Often the mountain is wreathed in cloud and nobody sees it at all so we don't make a big deal of mountain views, in order to avoid disappointment. On the other hand no rooms look out...

The Peaks Motor Inn is just between the 2 major parts of Ohakune. You can take a beautiful stroll along the little stream towards the village with restaurants etc. The room is comfy, you have an outside sitting place - so just fine.

Thanks very much for your review, which sums up the attitude of most people as they leave every morning nicely.

We booked 2 nights at this Inn in the mountains and were so glad that we made this choice. Our room was cozy and clean, we had a full kitchen to work with making breakfast and dinners to enjoy outside on our little patio. Location was great but the VIEW was amazing. Staff was friendly and helpful. Would book this...

This place was ideal for our short stay in Ohakune. Jenny at reception greeted us and made sure we knew what to do in the local area, she was keen that we got out and about and pulled up weather reports and mountain camera live videos. The room was a good size, very clean. The bed was a little soft,...

We stayed here for 1 night on the way south a week after we had spent 1 night across the rd at the court motel on the way north. The other motel was fine and the friendly owner deserves your business but the Peaks had a much nicer room, definitely a class or two above. We drove into town at...

Thanks for your review, yes tourists are starting to discover that Ohakune has a big range of accommodation and also very good restaurants and cafes, so we're a good destination to explore this region from.

I arrived here after cycling from Wanganui and couldn't believe my good fortune to have a great ground floor unit with a spa bath! - I thought I'd arrived in heaven - and the next day had a great cooked breakfast delivered to the room, what more could you ask for.

After cycling here uphill into a northerly wind all the way from Wanganui, you definitely deserved it all - pleased you survived to write us a review.

We enjoyed our stay at the Peaks Motor Inn, its was very clean and comfortable and office staff was very helpful. Close to the Old Coach trail which we did on our mountain bikes. Would stay there again .

Thanks for doing a review Judy, yes the Ohakune Old Coach Road is about 3 kms of country road away from The Peaks.
