“Mountain Heaven”
Reviewed 9 June 2013

Stayed at these Chalets over the Queens birthday weekend with my partner and a couple of friends. The state of the Chalets were prestige and it fit all of our likings, from beds, to kitchen, to the communal spas and dvd selections. We have talked about going back to the Chalets later in the next month! It was so peacefully, and it really felt like home. The chalets were roomy, and it was comfortable. It was especially great waking up to see Mt Ruapehu every morning!! It is such a good value of money and we will definitely be going back soon!

We stayed at Rocky Mountain Chalets in March 2013. We really enjoyed our stay, the hosts were very helpful and accomodating, going over and beyond the call of duty. They even organised a babysitter so my husband and I could go out for dinner one evening. The Chalets were very clean and comfortable and all round great value for money. Location was great, only a 5-10 minute walk from the main centre of town. We were even able to catch a shuttle from the gate to the Tongaririo Crossing and back home again and the end of the day. Would highly recommend to anyone with a family wanting all of the comforts of home.

We booked the presidential suite for two nights. We like a high standard when we go away as we have two small children. Was not worth the extra money, there were dead fly's everywhere, many of the dishes and pans needed to be cleaned before we used them, there was wood-chips/rubbish under and around the wood-basket and the fireplace was filthy. Considering it was summer, the fire would not have been used in some time and should have been cleaned. The worst part was I got a glass shard in my foot while we were using the private spa provided with the presidential suite. At $180/night this is not okay, and given it is the off season for Ohakune, we could have got a nice motel for half the price and not have been expected to clean up after ourselves. We will not be back.

The two of us stayed here for a weekend get away over New Years 2012/13 and could not have asked for anything better. The two bedroom chalet was top of the line - very well furnished and clean, a lovely shower with plenty of hot water and plenty of room to relax in. The hosts were very helpful and the price was good too (took advantage of a summer special). Close to town (a 10 min walk at the most) and would definitely stay here again. Thanks

Stayed at the rocky mountain chalets for 1 night in sept. 2012 on our way through. The accomodation was well presented, perfectly clean and very comfortable.
The location is a little bit outside of town just on he boarder of ohakune which was to too much trouble.

In the morning we popped up the mountain and were allowed a late check out.

Would highly recommend and would like to go back again with he family for a longer stay

I have stayed with Rocky Mountain chalets 7 years in a row on a regular 9 day break with friends, plus on other ad hoc weekends. I wouldn't want to stay anywhere else in Ohakune.

It's excellent value for money (especially if you book their 7 night special offer). The communal spa pools are great and the chalets are well appointed with good equipment in the kitchen. There are heat pumps to keep you warm.

You have mountain views from some of the chalets, and from the spa pools - what more could you want from your Ohakune experience?

Some of the chalets are positioned to get all day sun so you can sit out on the desk if the weather is nice (surprisingly warm sometimes at the beginning/end of the snow season).

The chalets are outside of the main township, but you can easily walk to them or if it's late at night you can get the 'party shuttle' which is a shuttle bus service that does a loop of Ohaknue picking and dropping off at the major night spots.

Room Tip: Ask for a chalet that gets the sun. Some of the chalets are on the main road in/out of Ohakune wh...

We stayed at the chalet for a week while we went skiing at Turoa (25min away) and Whakapapa (40min away). The chalet was great - 2 bedrooms with a good size kitchen, washing machine, dryer (this came in very handy as it rained a lot!), and nice lounge room. There's also 2 lovely spas shared between all the chalets - perfect after a long days skiing! The chalet was nice and clean. Its only a short walk into Ohakune for dinner etc. The owners of the chalets were fantastic - very helpful and friendly and knew everything about the local area and the slopes. Would definately recommend this place for a group of friends or a family wanting to do some skiing.
