Working for a couple of days in Ohakune, always a great place to stay. Room was well appointed and plenty of parking. The lodge and communal kitchen might appeal to families who don't need a separate motel unit. Leigh is a great host.

The lodge is very close to the SKI mountain (about 15 KM away from the mountain top). Recommend for Skiers. The hotel provides a small SPA pool which relaxes you after you coming down from a ski. thx.
