Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

Our family loved Frankie & Hugh's and were sad to only being staying one night. The house had everything we needed, was beautifully decorated and so very zen. Wish we could live there !! The gardens were gorgeous ... only to be outdone by the adorable Coco and Scooter.

The property was really spacious with a generous sitting area and 3 good bedrooms in a quiet area of the town. We It was very clean, had a sitting out area in a lovely garden with a stream running through it. It was within walking distance of the centre where there were several restaurants. There was an adequate supply of breakfast foods to cook in the morning and a nice touch of shortbread biscuits on arrival. Our host was very helpful and friendly.

Lovely views surrond this property which is set to the side of Marlene's own home. Unfortunately never met Marlene as it was her friend on hand to greet us and dare I say what a lovely lady she was indeed. Marlene is s lucky person to have such a friend around to help. We only needed the one room but this place could easily accommodate six people comfortable with two double rooms and one bunk room. Kitchen is tiny but as they say perfectly formed with all you need. Appreciated the bacon and eggs for us to use ~ we thoroughly enjoyed our breakfast that day! Shower great with a mirrored bottom in steel ~ very interesting :) . Log burner was a delight with oodles of logs at our disposal. Great place if your into skiing and outdoor activities ~ we on the other hand were merely passing through and on to Wellinton so as a place itself Ohakune didn't I feel tick the boxes for us personally ~ unless you've a liking for 'Carrots' as we weren't sure what all that was about either ~ but they seemed to hold some relevance to the townsfolk as there is a giant one near the children's park to greet you. Overall for us the actual accommodation made the stay worth while.

If you are into skiing on the mountain, cycling the bike trails, or love walking the tracks make sure you visit Ohakune and stay at Frankie & Hugh's B&B. It is surrounded by views of Mt Ruapehu in a setting with a running stream and rustic surrounds. It has three spacious bedrooms, great kitchen and bathroom facilities, an ever running wood-burner to keep you toastie warm, private and quiet surrounds and an owner who will make sure your stay is ideal. We did a lot of walking while there, and dined out in great and close by restaurants. A great place to spend a few days being active or just lazing around.
