    Die Ausstattung ist nicht besonders modern, aber ein großes Zimmer und gute ruhige Lage am Ortsrand. Warmes Wasser war wirklich warm und nicht brühend heiß, wie anderswo. Schnelles Checkin freundlicherweise schon vor 14 Uhr.

    We stayed two nights in a double room, which was very comfortable and good value for money. Staff were extremely nice and helpful and I'd go back any time! The view of Mt Ruapehu was amazing and Ohakune was a very convenient place to stay for doing the Tongariro crossing.

    "Overall enjoyed our stay."

    Ronald was very nice and helpful. Beds very comfortable, slept great. We enjoyed the spa.

    The room was tidy but the lino felt a bit sticky, one of the selves in fridge was dirty as was the top of the rubbish bin.

    As it was advertised as a family room that slept up to five I would have thought we would not have been charged for the two kids.

    Above it says we paid $120.00, but we paid $20.00 more for our two boys.

    "Well Recommended Accommodation"

    We rented a 1bedroom unit for overnight stay. The place is very tidy and well maintained and light on the wallet. Donald already pre warmed the room just before we arrived which was very helpful. Drying room was very convenient as well. Would definitely return in the next winter season. All in all 5 out of 5.

    "Ski stay"

    Donald (the proprietor) was very accommodating about giving us a choice of room on our arrival, even though they were fully booked. He offers regular users flexibility over cancellations.

    Unit was warm and clean with very good cooking facilities. Bathroom facilities were good, though I found the step up to the shower a little disconcerting. We did ask Donald to look at the shower waste.

    We had a magnificent ground-floor view of the mountain and were treated to a magical clear sky sunset with Ruapehu turning pink in the setting sun.

    Recent upgrades have improved this unit greatly and I would now make it my preferred motel for next time.

    "Just what we wanted"

    Not wanting to spend a lot but needed somewhere that would cater to myself & three teenage boys not able to go up the mountain if closed, which it was. Even "splashing out" for the 5 sleeper room was affordable and definately worth it. All slept well and had plenty of space to cook, eat & hang out. Great staff, friendly & accommodating, room clean and well stocked with extra towels supplied for spa.

    "Ok but..."

    Booked a down stairs room for x2 days for x3 of us,

    3 single beds in room,

    2 were made up and there were only x2 duvets in the room so the first night was poor,

    at 10:30pm our room ph rang & someone was trying to make a booking...WTF

    next we Unplugged the noisy fridge & off to sleep.

    next night the bed had been sorted with all the required bedding etc by house keeping so that was an improvement,(we hadn't told the office couse we left early before it opened.)fixed the ph by unplugging it.

    And all was ok after that.

    clean enough but one bed spread needed a wash.

    overall it was ok, value for money but not great,

    good parking for trailers etc and easy to get in & out of so it worked for me & my dirt bike mates.

    beds comfy and no traffic noise, good bathroom & kitchen just needs a quieter fridge.

    21/2 outta 5 I'd say.

    We'd say there again for another dirt bike weekend but not with my wife....

    "Excellent Value!"

    This accommodation is highly recommendable. The receptionist (I guess Donald) was friendly and very informative upon our arrival and gave us tips on how to spend our time in Ohakune (walks, tours on the Wanganui River, etc). The room was very tidy and sufficiently well equipped though a little dated (this was no drawback at all given the affordability). They gave us a voucher for 200 MB of wireless internet usage for free as well which is in my opinion okay. Other places we stayed at would only give 50 MB or even 20 MB for free. Coin laundry was available as well. They expressed flexibility as to check out times or internet usage, that is, a little longer or more, respectively, would be no problem. I guess this is more than one could reasonably expect for this price level. Make sure to do a nice evening walk over the bridge close to the motel and along the river at dusk (it's so beautiful!)

    We had an excellent time, the three bedroom house worked well for us - did our own cooking, had enough space for three adults and two kids, washing machine, drier, clothes line, etc. The Motel managers were really friendly and helpful with local information. It was a great price, good service/facilities and we'd come again. Tips: Cats got into the rubbish left outside a couple of times, so best to bring it inside at least at night. Some great short-medium walks all around Ohakune.

    Hi Manu Thanks for taking the time to write your review. The house is very good for families especially if staying a few nights. Cats are a bit of a problem so we now tell guests to put the rubbish bin in the laundry over night. We have walked or biked most of the tracks in our area and are only to happy to share this information. Hope you can get kiwi rail to open the line through to Napier again.

    We chose the King room, well worth it such a comfortable big bed. Room looked to have been recently painted and felt really fresh. The housekeeping was excellent, the room was spotless. The shower was quite small (and the parking spaces!). The staff were really friendly, and we also enjoyed the spa. Good spot about halfway between township shops (walkable) and the junction, near river. Would recommend, and return.

    Not to happy with the place. Whe we got in we noticed the back of the toilet door had a terrible stain on it, you can only assume what that was. The towels are in desperate need of replacement. The next day our room was tidied up but the towels were not changed as it was said in the brochure. We ended up using out own towels.

    Generally the location was good and the owner very helpful with information.

    I will use it again but will try something else first.

    "Ohakune Court Motel is GOLDEN!"

    Ohakune Court Motel is my first choice accommodation each time I make my snow trip to Turoa. I never look elsewhere after experiencing top services, great comfort, cleanliness and it is value for money! Most importantly it is well heated. It is equiped with everything you will need, you need not worry if you had forgotten to bring something. A star of the motel is Donald, who is friendly, helpful and very attentive to his customers' needs. There are countless things I could mention of his exceptional services but I shall leave it for you to find out :) I highly recommend this motel to anyone who is visiting Ohakune.

    "Ohakune Court"

    Friendly hosts,good service.

    Clean.

    Room suitable for an over night stay but no longer as very small...more like a hotel bedroom than a motel unit. Paid $15 for a 7yr old to stay.

    "good value family accommodation"

    Ohakune Court Motel is an older property, however it is clean, well-maintained and in a quiet location (about 10 minutes walk to centre of town). We had a family unit, which had two seperate bedrooms, a well equipped kitchen and additional bedding / lounges in the living room. Good value for money property.

    "Would Highly Recommend"

    Enjoyed the 3 night stay at Ohakune Court Motel. My partner and I stayed in Rm 19. It was very clean, modern and comfortable for NZ standards. Bed was very comfortable (lots of pillows) and the room was cozy. The oil heater kept the room warm and cozy. There weren't any drafts. The kitchenette had clean and modern utensils and kitchenware. Donald the manager was very kind and helpful. We went skiing everyday at Mount Ruapehu and Donald would keep us informed regarding the road conditions and would call up to our room to inform us. The hot tub was in good condition and Donald made sure that it was at an adequate temperature for us. They had a drying room but we did not use. The Wi-Fi was not free, however. Overall, enjoyed the stay, but would have liked to have paid a little less for the room. Would have paid $120 per night for the room. In any case, would still highly recommend the place.

    Really appreciated the lovely warm room to to return to after being on the mountain all day. Very helpful staff, go the extra mile to ensure a pleasant stay. Nice, clean units that are well equipped. with everything you could possibly need. For what yo get, the accommodation is affordable, especially if you are a family. Wholeheartedly recommend to serious skiers who want nothing but to come home to a nice warm unit and comfortable bed.

    "Costly compared to quality"

    We stayed in room #18 at Ohakune Court Motel over the first weekend in September.

    Pros:

    - The manager provided a baby cot

    - Very clean

    - Good bed

    - Nice views

    Cons:

    - They charged an extra $10 for the baby cot.

    - No sink mixers and the shower head is installed so that only very short people can get wet hair. The bathroom has been done up but only cosmetically. The old low quality components are still there. The lack of sink mixers is really annoying.

    - They state that there is central heating but there is only an electric heater

    - Even on the lowest level the fridge freezes everything

    - The bathroom window could not be closed

    Conclusion

    The price is quite steep compared to what you actually get. We will stay at another place next time we are in Ohakune.

    "Could use some work"

    There were a number of good things about the hotel - great location halfway between town centers, quiet, helpful and accomodating staff, good selection of free DVD rentals, reasonable rates for self serve laundry, and a jacuzzi on the property. But room number 8 had an offensive smell, was drafty and didn't have enough hot water. Based on my stay in this room and despite some of the positive aspects of this property, I can't make a positive recommendation now. See my more expansive review in Trip Advisor.

    "Good location, great for family"

    Was a little surprised by the exterior on arrival, it didn't look like I expected from the picture, and the building was obviously pretty old (my husband remembered staying here as a child 30+ years ago). However the units had been recently refurbished so were pretty good inside.

    The staff were excellent, friendly and helpful, and our unit was very warm and cosy, and beds were good. Nice outlook over the reserve in front, and mountain view.

    The spa pool was nice and hot but quite strongly chlorinated, we all had stinging eyes (but good to know the hygiene was taken care of). The unit was basic and lacked mod cons (like a dishwasher) and a few kitchen tools to make life easier, but was very clean and tidy.

    Worked well for our family with 2 bedrooms, it is hard to find a motel to accommodate a family with 3 kids properly these days, but this one worked well. Thought it was a bit expensive given the age and amenities, but it was peak season I guess (winter school holidays in ski season).

    We had a great stay here. Situated close to the Turoa skifield and our room had a great view of the mountain. The 2 bedroom unit was clean and warm enough for the cold winter nights. Also a very nice gesture by the staff who provided some lovely cupcakes.

    Only had a small concern with the bathroom. A lock on the bathroom door and a sink mixer, instead of separate taps, would be nice additions. Will definitely return here in the future.

    "nice but pricey"

    My partner and I stayed here over the weekend of Mardi Gras in June.

    We did enjoy our time but did feel it was expensive for what it was. I know prices get put up over Mardi Gras becasue a lot of young people stay and the risk is higher, but that's not really fair on the quiet people who won't cause any problems.

    Loved the bed and the shower was good. Felt very paranoid about making any marks on all the white linen and towels as these will be charged for if make-up marks or anything else is found on them. VERY tricky not to have any with very white bedding.

    Would recommend to others but maybe just not on loud weekends.

    The host was lovely to deal with and very helpful.

A nice touch was the free use of a large range of DVDs and videos. We would most definitely stay here again.

    "An inexpensive place to rest after a day in the mountains"

    We chose this motel as it was considerably cheaper than the competition for a two day break walking in the mountains. The room was basic but clean and had a small kitchenette with fridge, microwave and 2 electric hobs. The shower had plenty of hot water and worked well. We took a mountain view room on the first floor and got some fantastic views of the mountain. The owners were friendly and helpful and allowed us to connect to the internet for $10 for two days rather than the advertised $10 per day. The only real downside of the room was that it stayed pretty warm till late in the evening and we had a bit of a problem getting the door to lock.

    The upstairs studio unit was clean and nicely furnished. The bathroom appeared new and was particularly pleasant. My only quibbles were the heating - underflow heating would have been ideal, but in its absence a fan heater is needed to warm the place quickly - and the limited availability of kitchen utensils (e.g. bowls for the microwave, cheese grater, corkscrew).

It was in a great position - a short drive to the mountain but also close enough to walk to the town of Ohakune and nearby New World supermarket. The reception was friendly and helpful and you got your own parking space. The rooms were a little basic and could maybe do with updating but they were clean and warm with electric blankets on all of the beds and central heating - very cosy. We had a cooked breakfast and borrowed dvds at night for the kids ! Would use again.

    "Hmmm, mixed feelings about this one!!"

    This motel is a bit tired, but you get what you pay for I guess. It would have made a so-so list of my preferred properties if it wasn't for a horny and drunk pair of males in the communal spa pool who were obviously just in negotiation with a (still dressed) prostitute when me and my friend entered the spa pool hut to have a soak after day of skiing. Arrgh and yukk!!! Obviously out of place and unwelcome, we were told we were supposed to book the spa, which we were not told of at check in. Hot pool is definitely off at this motel, thank you.

    We also had mixed feelings about the front desk man who had some weird comments -- this was confirmed to us by another former guest we met later.

    I would not go back.

    This motel is conveniently situated midway between main town with its range of cafes and bars and the upmarket area near the railway, where the mountain raod begins. We stayed here in order to ski and the owner had recommendations for cheapest ski hire. The rooms are basic but clean and perfectly adequate. Although extensive cooking is not anticipated, the owner provided extra cooking equipment to suit our needs. The boys were delighted by the large and wide-ranging video library, freely available for viewing. The hot spa (again complimentary) was enjoyed by all. The owner had further recommendations to local outdoor activities. We felt every effort had been made to made our stay a good value success.
