We made an impromptu trip to Ohakune, over Labour weekend and were very warmly received by Alan and Susie at the lodge. They are super-friendly and we had some lovely conversations over a home-cooked breakfast that I would describe as thoughtfully prepared and delicious. Thanks to their suggestions and advice, we could make the most of our short stay in Ohakune, with lovely bush walks in Ohakune and a trek upto the Taranaki waterfall through Tongariro bush and native grass; even getting an opportunity to go up Mount Ruapehu and watch the skiers in action on the last day of ski season! The room in the lodge was very comfortable and tastefully designed and it was clear that a lot of thought had gone into even the littlest details. The bathroom was modern and neat. We came back with some homemade honey, good memories and two new friends in Alan and Susie! Looking forward to visiting there again and we'd certainly recommend them to anyone looking to travel upto Ohakune. :-)

We stayed two nights at Susie and Alan's lodge just at the foot of Mt. Ruapehu. This beautiful B&B, with nicely decorated rooms, each in its own style, is within foot distance to Ohakune town center. Our hosts provided us a warm welcome and had lots of good and useful tips for touring the area. Breakfast was great and guests are welcome to use the spacious living room and terrace. Thanks for having a perfect time on the south-western corner of the Tongariro National Park. Best regards Michaela, Gerd, Nick & Marc

Nice house close to the town center for restaurants and supermarkets. Cozy rooms with everything you need it in them. Big lounge and even a spa (perfect after a day out hiking). Great breakfast to start the day and awesome!

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.

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

This is just a perfect place to explore Ohakune and Tongariro NP! The B&B is modern and has all the facilities you need. Our room was nicely decorated and the bathroom was spacious. The hosts know a lot about the region and give good tips and advice. Manuka Lodge is just outside the town centre, a 10 minute walk and your at some good reataurants and shops.

Allen and Suzy do everything to make you feel your special. They serve a great breakfast, have WiFi in all the rooms and help you out to choose the things to do you want to go for if the crossing is not an option. Excellent B & B.
