Low season in Ohakune so the place was pretty empty. The room was comfortable and had everything for a one night stay. The kitchen was adequate to cook for two. Reception was friendly and prompt. WiFi worked well.

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
