Sunbeam Motor Lodge, Ohakune: Agressive Service

Overall the Hotel is not bad or unclean. However it is overpriced for what it is, and the owner is really rude.
2 large mongrol dogs are allowed to roam the property "because they live here" which can be quite intimidating if you don't like dogs. One also vomited in my doorway.
There are supposedly 2 spas but neither were working.
On asking for a partial refund because of constant issues with other rowdy guest partying at 2am (paper thin walls), the owner was really aggressive and has been hounding me by letter and e-mail calling me a scammer and a lier.

Overall, the place was not nice enough to warrant any further stays there anyway, but the owner being so intense was the final straw.

I suggest booking early to stay at a nicer place (for less!) or booking a privately owned Chalet.

It's right next to the Powderkeg Bar.

The TV sits so close to the floor at the end of the bed, you cannot actually see it from any point in the room.
