Apologies for the lateness of this review of our stay in October 2013. It's taken me six months to get through the reviews I want to write, although reminding myself of our great trip is an ongoing pleasure!
We fetched up in Ohakune during wild spring weather (with which we are sadly quite familiar!) and while there, experienced some of the heaviest rain I've ever been in. When you're not at home that's kind of exciting though. Fascinated, we watched water rise around our motel room; a burn across the road burst its banks and took a short cut to the massively oversubscribed local river which was raging along filled with sediment and bits of tree. Sorry to say, some people in the village were evacuated, although I understand the emergency was short-lived.
A little later on in the same day we were walking through a beautiful forest round a lake in dappled sunshine – though the higher walk we wanted to take was impossible because of snow and we’d chosen a forest route that avoided crossing burns.
The owner/manager is welcoming and the information on offer is well chosen; we enjoyed our stay. The accommodation was all we needed, clean and comfortable and there was a chance to get some laundry done too.
