Frances and Ian let us into their beatiful home for our 3 nights in late May. Hospitality was boundless. Thank you both. We had stayed in Turangi elsewhere twice before, but researched and decided to stay here at Tui Lodge so that Kim could have a day fly fishing with Ian and us both relax in the house of the... More

But staying at Tui Lodge was a wonderful experience in and of itself. Our room was lovely, with a very comfortable king bed and modern... More

Tui Lodge exceeded all our expectations and some. Accommodation is spacious and very clean and the proprietors Ian and Frances make you feel very welcome and really do their best to ensure you get the most from your stay in the area. Breakfast is something else particularly if you like Rhubarb. Lots of fresh fruit mainly from the garden. Also... More

We stayed at Tui Lodge for three days, hosts Ian & Francis were fantastic, loved the home cooked breakfast with fresh fruit & rhubarb straight from the garden. 5 star accommodation & service at a fraction of the price you would expect to pay. Great value ! Ian runs guided trout fishing tours & supplies all the good gear for... More

Hosts made us feel very comfortable. Treated as members of the family yet given our own "space". Great local knowledge and stunning garden. Overall just like being at home but with staff to provide for every need.
