Stayed here for 2 nights with my family. Rooms are clean, nothing flashy. Easy walk to just about everything in town. 45 minutes or so from Turanga for rafting and about 1.5hours from Lake Taupo. Front desk help was pleasant enough. Would stay here again

I stayed at the B&B accommodation with my Fiancé after paddling the Whanganui River. We received a very friendly greeting and we're picked up with our bags and driven to the front door by the owner. The accommodation was beautiful and very spacious communal areas. We were made to feel very much at home. The communal areas are very large... More

Snowhaven is a management company for several properties and apparently doesn't own the units, so they are a bit different depending on what you rent. Our 3 bed/2 bath town home was conveniently located a 20 minute drive from Turoa Skifield and 45 minute drive from Whakapapa Skifield, a 10 minute walk from a restaurant and snow shop, and a...

This is a very basic accommodation, probably fine for a single young 20-something on a ski holiday - but really Spartan for a family room! I kept wondering what I was missing, considering the other glowing reviews for this place ... I really don't get them. The room (we were in room 6) is really small, and the furniture really... More

Lynne is a fantastic host and makes the best breakfasts - her French toast with bacon, bananas & maple syrup is amazing. After a day on the ski field it was brilliant to come home to a toasty warm house and great company. Thoroughly recommend this B & B

Everything as you would like it, position, facilities nature all around. Fabulous in winter time as the mountain is close by. We stayed for 2 days but could have stayed longer. I can recommend this accomodation.

We stayed in a budget studio at Clyde Street for 4 nights in June. It was so clean and looked newly renovated. It is in a great location, so convenient to drive up the mountains and hike about. Best of all are the electric blankets and heater, great for cold Winter nights! Ohakune is a lovely small town. Right next... More

Lyn runs the bed and breakfast from her home. This is in a very quiet street close to the centre of town. My husband and I had pretty well the whole house to ourselves as Lyn is out during the day. She provides a terrific cooked breakfast at the time of your choosing (between 7 and 9 I think). The... More
