Newly refurbished 1 bedroom apartments were well equipped and everything spotless. If there was any other equipment you wanted ie picnic sets, you only had to ask and one was provided. The apartment is on two levels and although air con is installed downstairs it did get warm upstairs but I requested a fan and one was supplied straight awayThe... More

Great facilities, lovely 1BR unit. Very comfortable, great shower and fantastic kitchen. Lois and the staff are great, nothing is too much trouble. Very good location. Would highly recommend. Thank you for a great holiday.

Heated pool, two spa rooms, surrounded by mountains and farmland, apartments had everything we needed (except non-stick frypans; failed pancakes only downside). Really felt like a home away from home. Hard to be in this location without a car if you want to get around to see more than what is immediately surrounding you but plenty of activities in Turangi:... More

My wife and I stayed one week at the Lodge. Although Interval assigned us a limited kitchen room the property manager was kind enough to move us to a full kitchen room. Compared to some North American properties we have stayed in over the years the room we stayed in was much smaller than what we are used to. It... More

Turangi Leisure Lodge - well below expected standard for Interval International We stayed here as [part of an Interval International exchange. Good location to explore Tongariro National Park but quality of accommodation is only equivalent to a 3 star motel. The things we found extremely disappointing include: • Three bedroom units unable to be configured to accommodate 2 adult couples... More

We booked here as it was half way to where we wanted to be and a good price, although we have driven past many times it was not somewhere we had considered as a destination. We booked a week but had booked our destination accommodation previously so stayed only a few days. Our apartment was close to the main road... More

Our cabin is unit 28 which has been recently remodeled. The carpet needs to be replaced for sure. It is well equipped with dishwasher, powerful oven, toaster, DVD player, two electric burners, a lot of pots and pans for 6 people. Master suite with a full bath is upstairs and bedroom downstairs has a queen bed and double bed plus... More

We spent Easter at the Turangi Leisure Lodge in a two bedroom unit. It was at the opposite end of the facility to the reception and pool etc but it wasn't an issue (just a short walk) and we were glad not to be near the pool. There was a new looking cafe opposite as part of the rock-climbing centre/backpackers.... More

We stayed for a week in a renovated one bedroom unit, near the pool area. It was clean and modern. We were pleasantly surprised. The kitchen was very well equipped - two burner hob, mini oven, microwave, fridge freezer and plenty of crockery, cutlery and other kitchen equipment.Try the free sachet of plunger coffee - very good! Only downside was... More

Before heading on our holidays, I Googled this lodge and had some reservations on what to expect. I was wrong, the lodge was absolutely wonderful, the unit was excellent the facilities were great. The only downer is that there is nothing happening in Turangi. We had to travel 50km everyday to Taupo, which was OK. If you just want to... More
