If you are visiting the Mt Ruapehu skifields, either Turoa or Whakapapa 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 987m from Ohakune’s fine restaurants, bars and cafes, on the road leading to Ohakune Mountain Road and Turoa skifield on Mt Ruapehu, and 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 away from Turoa Ski field which provides superb skiing and boarding. The Nga Wai Heke lift opens up the southeast basin area for some awesome runs over great terrain, making the Turoa skifield NZs premier skiing venue. Mountain shuttles pick up and return to our front entrance.
This year we are pleased to be able to continue to offer great mid week longer stay accommodation specials. Check out our ‘specials’ page for details.
