Tussock Grove Boutique Hotel
Ranked #5 of 6 Hotels in Ohakune
Reviewed 8 January 2017

We stayed here so we could do the Tongariro Alpine Crossing. The service and the friendly staff were excellent. Good facilities, clean tidy rooms, worth the stay. If you like dogs they have a very friendly animal called: Brody. He's a border collie, not your usual black and white one but a blond haired dog. You will tire out playing with him sooner than he will. Not very far from the towns centre, a good place to have a meal is the Clyde Hotel in the main street. If we do the other walk in the area next year, we're still getting over doing the Alpine Crossing, we will definitely stay here again.

Room Tip: All are good

We loved our stay at Tussock Grove. Our time here started off great, the host Chris was very accommodating, staying up late in order to check us in and advise us he had noted our dietary requirements that we had sent earlier.

Our room was spacious, clean and comfy. We had a large upstairs bedroom and a cozy downstairs lounge, perfect for relaxing. We had a cooked breakfast both mornings we were there, and both times the food was delicious and came out very quickly. We also enjoyed a lovely dinner here too, the food was restaurant quality and delicious.

Our host Chris was amazing! Very friendly, genuine and willing to help. We were originally staying there as part of their "Tongariro Crossing Package" but due to injuries, we were unable to do the crossing. Chris used his excellent local knowledge to provide us with another track we could use, and was happy to drop us off at this location.

Overall it was a great stay and we would love to come back and stay again. The hospitality at this place is amazing! I would recommend this place to anyone travelling to Ohakune, that's wanting a truly unique and relaxing experience.

This is a lovely stop over hotel, especially if travelling from Auckland southwards. It is unusual, Our room was a mezzanine room with s balcony double bed and sofa with downstairs a shower room and seating . Plenty of room. Fresh milk for your tea and coffee too, which you can put in your fridge. Spa - yes Spa pool!! Brilliantly relaxing after the driving and open till 10pm! Very comfortable hotel. Breakfast was very good and at very reasonable prices. The owner is very friendly and helpful in making sure you have everything you need and suggestions if places to visit locally! This is a great hotel with very friendly feel and one that I would highly recommend. Book early though as they can get quite busy.

We got a grabone for this place to do the tongoriro crossing. Great place where the owners were very accomodating to stay up late for us to arrive from Auckland on a Friday after work. They had everything organised and ready for us including meal packs. The place is getting a bit dated but overall still quite comfortable. Spa pool was OK, the jets werent working. Would recommend the place to stay..

The hosts are very friendly and always willing to help. The room is very comfortable, so also the bed. Nice mail made by the owners and a very nice Spa pool. The only minus is that it is a litte bit noisy, you can hear the neigbours in the room beside you.
