If you are visiting the Mt Ruapehu region and either Turoa or Whakapapa ski-fields then Ohakune has everything you could need, and the best Ohakune accommodation is at The Peaks Motor Inn.
The Peaks Motor Inn is conveniently located 900m from Ohakune’s fine restaurants, bars and cafes, on the road leading to Ohakune Mountain Road which enters the Tongariro National Park on the base of Mt Ruapehu. The Peaks features a choice of secure, modern quiet & warm studio units (sleep 1-3 people) and one-bedroom units (sleep 1-4 people). All units have full kitchens, well appointed bathrooms (some with spa baths), Sky TV, 32" LCD TVs and there is ample off-street parking.
The Peaks is a short 20 - 25 minute drive from Turoa ski-field which provides great skiing and boarding. Turoa is the North Islands premier field and features open rolling terrain and great facilities. If you don't want to drive yourself, mountain shuttles will collect you, and return after a day on the slopes.
This year we are pleased to be able to continue to offer our mid week longer stay accommodation special, check out our ‘specials’ page for details and book online.
If the slopes are closed due to poor weather or you just want a break, Ohakune Mountain Road is also the gateway to stunning views and hikes, and provides access to many great tracks, including Forest Loop, Blyth Track, Waitonga Falls, and stunning Lake Surprise. For details on these and many other activities see our 'Staying Here/Summer at The Peaks' pages.
Mountain biking also remains popular over the winter months, and the Ohakune Old Coach Rd provides an all year round
trail, along with Ratamaire Rd, and many others. The Te Pepe pump track is a popular new all weather addition to the range of activities close by.
Our guest facilities include outdoor spa pools, wireless internet, gym, sauna, guest laundry, drying room, DVD library & players and conference room. Shuttles are available to collect you and your gear from the front gate, taking you to any of the great tracks and trails. Enjoy a continental breakfast delivered to your room.
Afterwards enjoy a coffee or dinner at one of Ohakune’s many fine cafes or restaurants. (See our ‘Ohakune’ drop down menu at the top of every page.)
