    “FREEZING! It was snowing on the mountain but that’s normal for Ohakune and I think the place should be equipped for that.”

    The heat pump was grossly inadequate. My wife came separately the second day, and bought x2 large panel heaters. Even with these heaters it took two days to warm up the house. The beds each have a very heavy duvet on them which we found to be cold. Electric blankets are provided but you’d need to keep them on all night to stay warm as duvet is not warm enough and the room temperature was well below 16degrees. The kids and I wore our ski clothing to eat meals until my wife arrived with more ...

    The heat pump was grossly inadequate. My wife came separately the second day, and bought x2 large panel heaters. Even with these heaters it took two days to warm up the house. The beds each have a very heavy duvet on them which we found to be cold. Electric blankets are provided but you’d need to keep them on all night to stay warm as duvet is not warm enough and the room temperature was well below 16degrees. The kids and I wore our ski clothing to eat meals until my wife arrived with more heating. My wife also bought sleeping bags down, we could not have stayed without these. Everything else was fine but really, in winter you need a warm base for skiing that is a priority. So sadly, this was a disappointing bach.

    Thank you for your review Rebecca. We are sorry to hear about the issues you had with heating at the property. We have raised this with our team on the ground to ensure this doesn't effect future guests. We do hope we can host you again in the future. Bachcare
