We spent one night here in the motel at the end of the July school holidays - we had not ever stayed here before. I was very impressed. The room was large with a lovely vaulted ceiling, very comfortable, scrupulously clean and with all the usual amenities including a generous wifi allowance. The manager was super friendly and helpful, and gave us a voucher for 10% off the best restaurant in town. It’s a good location - easy walking distance to Clyde St, but just far enough from the main road to be very quiet; the trade-off for that was no views from the room. We were able to park right outside the room which is always helpful. I thought it was good value for money and would happily stay here again.

Having booked a cabin for the weekend, I was more than pleasantly surprised that it was more like a motel room. Serviced daily, I was certainly not expecting that. The owners went above and beyond and made us feel so welcome. Even Dexter, the resident cat, made a fuss of everyone. Will certainly recommend to everyone and look forward to staying again

Great location, awesome value, excellent hosts and wonderful facilities/rooms. What more can I say. Thanks for looking after us. Hosts went out of their way to look after us in the lead up to the trip (with changing details and numbers in our group) but nothing was too much trouble.

The room was clean and tidy and comfortable it had everything i needed and i was happy to use the common room for cooking on the stove. Its located so close to the shops which means you can simply park and walk in if you want to go to cafes, information centre etc. I would happily return as well as recommend Ohakune Central backpackers.the managers were very friendly and a pleasure to deal with.
