Great room. Clean and tidy. Would recommend!
Lovely room and the back of the property had a running river through it. Very special. Clean and easy access to the room up a few steps. Comfy beds and lovely assortment of teas. Would recommend!

Great location in Ohakune With restaurants and gas station close by. The room was small but had everything we needed including the kitchenette.

Two night break
A 2 night break away. Comfy bed, quiet, pleasant. No reception on site so ring the number on the door for instructions. Room was ready to access. But no hot water the first night when we went to use the shower. Person staying next door said they had the same issue the previous night. Rang manager who was on the scene immediately to rectify issue. After 20 mins we had hot water. Room service was very average. It was very basic & rudimentary. No attention to detail. Bed made, 2 towels chucked on the table. Floor mat still on the floor of the shower, used hand towel I'd thrown on a rail & wet used face flannel I'd left in handbasin were not removed or replaced. Shower condiments not refilled, lucky we had our own soap to use. Shower base needs a better clean, corners missed & a spray of bleach around bottom of doors & shower base to remove soap scum & mould buildup would contribute to overall presentation. Bathroom floor needs a good vaccum or mopping as dust build-up around toilet & vanity. Hairdryer holder hasn't been wiped in ages, obvious dust buildup. Also need adequate cutlery & mugs for a 3 person room. I'm not being picky, I used to clean hotel rooms so have an eye for detail. And as I was paying $160 a night I still expected quality. Otherwise the accommodation is within easy walking distance to eating & other shops. Great location & comfortable.

Our stay with Snowhaven was for one night. While it was cost-effective, we were placed in a unit on the main road. Unfortunately, we heard every truck that passed by our room throughout the night. Not a great sleep. The upside it was convenient to the local shops and restaurants and cosy.
