Neat, clean, spacious and comfortable place to stay. We've had an excellent time - with Alan and Susie as great hosts - during new year period 2017/2018. Superb breakfast, stylish house and nice base from which you can do the must do Great Walk, the Tangoriro Alpine Crossing. Absolutely recommended!

At the base of the snow capped Mt. Ruapehu in the adjacent Tongariro National Park lies the charming Manuka Lodge. The crisp cool mountain air refreshed our spirits and invigorated us each day as we set out for the looming volcanos and dazzling waterfalls, signature sights of this stretch of New Zealand.
Our hosts Alan and Susie provided exceptional lodging for our 3 day stay in the lovely mountain town of Ohakune. They are clearly invested in making sure that their guests have a PEAK experience in every regard! They are a great team and a delightful couple and excellent company. They provided a home base from which we could explore the entire region --- just heavenly!

The accommodation is excellent. Our room was very good, spacious, beautiful and well equipped. An excellent breakfast is served, making a good start of your explorations of the day. All this is topped off by the friendliness and warmth of the hosts. Next to their knowledge about the area and tips on activities to get the most out of your stay. They display a sincere interest in your venture of the day, often leading to long talks. You get a feeling of home away from home, or meeting old friends while in fact you just met, which is well appreciated.

We stayed for 2 nights and really enjoyed it :) the breakfasts are yummy, the room was lovely, clean and large and the hosts are really friendly. We couldn't fault it, we just wish the weather was not so cloudy so we could see the mountain ;)

Beautiful and comfortable lodge. Ultra-friendly (but not overzealous) hosts with enormous amounts of local knowledge and happy to share recommendations and ideas. Hosts stayed in contact during a snowstorm when we couldn't make it to the town for one of the nights of our stay. Their updates and assistance made us keen to make the journey for the last night of our stay. We are so glad we made the trip. Ohakune is a beautiful welcoming holiday town and we are looking forward to making the trip again in the summer. The cooked breakfast was a highlight of our trip! Thank you Alan and Susie

Defining a new style of accommodation in the township of Ohakune which straddles the southern edge of the stunningly beautiful Tongariro World Heritage National Park. This perfectly appointed, purpose built Bed and More Breakfast offers a first-rate alternative to a Hotel with many of the trappings of a Boutique Lodge. We provide 4 star-plus facilities, en-suite hotel style rooms with breakfast fully inclusive of the rates. Manuka Lodge is intimate luxury, perfectly located in a secluded cul-de-sac, 10 minutes walk from the shops, bars and eateries of Ohakune. Also only 40mins from the start of the world famous Tongariro Alpine Crossing and 20mins from Turoa Ski Area. It makes for a perfect get away Winter and Summer. Less
