“Pleasureable Weekend”
Reviewed 9 March 2010

Our room was very clean and comfortable. The owner was most helpful assisting us with our late check-in. He also organised mountain bikes for us and had plenty of local knowledge to make our weekend enjoyable. The motel has recently changed hands and is in the process of being refurbished by the new owner. We intend to go back later in the year. If you are looking for a clean, tidy and cared for place to stay with helpful hosts, then this is it.

Reviewed 8 January 2010

We were passing thru Ohakune and decided to stop for a night before travelling to the South Island.
We choose Ohakune Court Motel because it was just enough out of town to be away from the late night noise of the pubs, but close enough to the town centre.
The hosts were great. Friendly, interested and helpful.
We hadn't planned to do much while there but they were able to recommend a few attractions for us while we were there and this was cool, otherwise we would've just blobbed and missed the sites.
Our room had a mountain view, which even in summer still had a little snow.
We will definately go out of our way and stay there again.

The room was large but the interior needs to be updated. It looks like it has been left in the 1970,s . This is a Ski town and I would say that the oil heaters may not give much heat. There is no Sky TV but there is a video hire which are free and that you like 'old school' movies. Some don't work. There is a spa, but not a lot if you have kids. Nice view of Mt Ruapehu. The owners were a bit snobby.

We were just passing through and chose somewhere cheap to stay but I'm glad it was only for one night! The motel was rather old fashioned and in need of some modernisation but to be fair it was cheap and clean. The main problem was we only had a small heater in a largish room and it was very cold. It was only really the start of the winter so I dread to think what it must be like later on. We ended up putting the oven on to keep warm! It might be alright in summer if you're looking for a budget stay.
