    I very much enjoyed staying here. The communal kitchen was very clean. The staff were helpful and friendly. It was quiet when we were there but I expect it will be fuller in ski season as it is very close to the slopes.

    Thank you Hazel for your great rating and lovely comments. Yes, the Ruapehu region is wonderful over the winter season, but also has so much to offer in the summer. Hope to see you again sometime soon. Cheers Leigh

    Clean, comfortable and great value for money. Just what you need a hot shower and a comfortable bed after a day on the mountain, and walking distance to the Powderkeg which has great food and drinks. Such a great location!

    Thank you so much for your lovely review. So glad you enjoyed your stay in Ohakune. Suggest you could visit again over the summer months to experience a very different, but still amazingly spectacular, Mt Ruapehu.
