Tussock Grove Boutique Hotel
Ranked #5 of 6 Hotels in Ohakune
Reviewed 29 August 2017 via mobile

Perfect for a weekend get away! Love the way the rooms were set up with the bedroom upstairs. Sadly didn't have enough time to get into the spa but great to have the option after a day on the slopes. Very clean tidy and welcoming. Friendly service and I loved the dog. Hoping to get back here before the season is over. Most definitely recommend this place.

The Motel is in a good location, just a 10 - 15 minute walk into town and numerous restaurants, which we had to do as, although we would have had dinner at the motel, the owner said unfortunately this wouldn't be possible as there was insufficient food available for our (largish) party of 10 and we hadn't pre-warned him we would like to dine in. Fair enough I suppose, but we had checked the dining options on line and there was no mention that we had to pre-book, never mid, we had breakfast there and it was very good. The facilities were really nice and clean, and although it's on a fairly main road there was little traffic to keep us awake, I slept like a log. and I'm a light sleeper. We had a mixture of "executive Queen" and "mezzanine Queen" and there didn't appear to be hardly any difference, certainly not enough to justify the extra price so the mezzanine Queen would be a choice in any future stay. We loved the dog too

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.
