We had booked 2 rooms for 3 nights, and both were very spacious and tastefully furnished. They had each a big bathroom and private extern access. The location was perfect for us as it was wonderfully quiet in a small street with a beautiful large garden. Supermarket and some restaurants were in easy walking distance. The short distance to Tongariro... More

We have just spent two nights at Tui Lodge. Our primary reason for choosing it was that we wanted to go fly fishing near Turangi and Ian is a very experienced and knowledgeable fishing guide. 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

Breakfast of fresh and stewed fruit from the garden was super. Hadn't ever put salt in the rhubarb while cooking - gosh it was so... 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

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.
