Delightful hotel in a Beautiful Setting”

The setting and the style

The Powderhorn Chateau was a delightful surprise. The Hotel is in a Beautiful Setting, very close to the quaint "old" part of Ohakune by the railway and at the foot of the road to the mountain. The alpine architecture of the Hotel is superb. The room was spacious with a lovely view across to a stream and the bed extremely comfortable. There were tea and coffee making facilities, plus a mini bar. The restaurant was very good, although the main restaurant the Matterhorn was closed for the summer. The breakfast was excellent. The staff were friendly, prompt and helpful. We shall return.

Had a lovely stay at the Powderhorn. Super friendly staff. Nice comfy big room. Great having the hot pool to relax in after an afternoon biking on the Old Coach Road. Breakfast was excellent and enormous! Super views of the mountain at sunset.

Like being in the Alps”

Architecture, size of rooms, location

The Powderhorn is situated in ski country and looks like a European ski Pension. The rooms are large and comfortable and all I could hear at night was the noise of running water from the stream across the road. The Reception staff were very helpful and friendly and food I had in the restaurant very good. I would love to return in ski season.

The room was fine but nothing special”

Near to Tonogario National Park

Overall however, the room was fine. The room safe was not working when we arrived, the desk clerk tried to fix it, however was not able to do so. My husband finally fixed the safe. The room had two beds in it; a queen and a twin, which took up most of the room. The internet was so slow and they limit your usage. So, we decided to use our Hertz Hotspot which was much faster. Also,we were put in room over the restuarant: so we heard the music late into the night. The food at the resturant was mediocre and expensive. Breakfast was very over priced and not very good. The best part of the experience was the nature walks in Tonogario Park. Wonderful, made up for the food and loud music (which yu can hear outside of the lodge).
