If you are visiting the Mt Ruapehu region or the upper Whanganui River 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.
This year we are pleased to be able to offer great longer stay accommodation specials, as well as our very competitive Tongariro Crossing deal. Check out our ‘specials’ page for details.
Ohakune Mountain Road is the gateway to the southern slopes of Ruapehu, with its stunning views and hikes to the North Island's only glacier, and also provides access to many great tracks, including Blyth Track, Waitonga Falls, and stunning Lake Surprise.
