Dinner Bed and Breakfast Package at Lake Ohau Lodge
OHAU RACE TRAINING PACKAGE - OCTOBER SCHOOL HOLIDAYS
Dear ski racing families
At the Lodge, we offer a dinner, bed and breakfast package in 4 standards of accommodation so there is something to suit all budgets. This ranges from our basic outside Huxley wing where the rooms have either twin, double or quad rooms (two sets of bunks) with en-suite bathroom. Inside the Lodge complex we have our smallish simply furnished Maitland wing where the rooms are either twin, double or triple share. We then have our Temple wing rooms with views of the lake that have either a queen and single or family rooms with a queen and bunk bed and en-suite bathroom. Finally there are our luxury double rooms in the Upper South Temple wing which have a queen bed only and the most glorious view of the lake and mountains from your bed!
We offer a two course set menu for children (6-12 years) and a 3 course meal for adults. All race trainers can dine together at 6pm or if you prefer, you can dine as a family together at 7pm. For breakfast there is a continental buffet with a cooked breakfast included. We have amazing chefs here, constantly being complimented on the guest meals so why not treat everyone and make it a holiday for all the family.
Please go to www.ohau.co.nz/ohau/Lake_Ohau_Lodge_Rates for further information on accommodation, rates and how we look after families. If you would like to make a booking we ask that if there is anyone in your family with a dietary requirement, please advise us before arrival as we cater for all dietary requirements on an individual basis e.g. gluten free bread, vegetarian meals, allergies etc.
As an October Race Package Special, we would also like to offer you that if you stay 5 nights then your 5th night, dinner bed and breakfast is free of charge!!
