The Lodge is an older style but very well presented and the room was clean and tidy, everything in excellent condition. The owner was very friendly and relaxed, simple quick check in and out. Great value nights sleep for us before we drove to the 45 minutes to Whakapapa Ski field on Mt Ruapehu :)

Only stayed one night with wife and two kids in a family room. The man in reception was very friendly and helpful. Room was tidy with a king bed in the lounge and two singles in the room. Had a nice warm spa in one of the two spa rooms. The only issue I have is when you add in... More

A very friendly and welcoming host who had already turned our heater on before we arrived in mid-winter. No noise from other units or from nearby SH1. Recently refurbished, with double glazing. The restaurant had a lovely menu and the food was all homemade (you have to try the parfait). Two spa rooms and fishing facilities. Close to nearby Tongariro... More

Clean tidy rooms with sky tv. Arrived to find the heat on - very cosy. Double glazed windows made it quiet. No issues with noise for other units but then not many other quests. The motel operators clearly take pride in there motel. Would recommend.

This motel is very handy to services, very clean, quiet and comfortable. The host and hostess made us very welcome and we would definitely stay again. We would recommend Parklands to friends and family, happily.

Short distance to the shops and Information Centre. Because we had a very early start the mini kitchen was great for preparing our own breakfast. The on-site restaurant was convenient and tasty. Friendly staff.

Great place to stay. Across from main highway but still relatively quiet. Was quite surprised. Due to time we were staying, bar and restaurant wasn't open so didn't get to taste there food. Will go back again for sure.

This is a nice property in spacious grounds in the centre of Turangi. Though it's on the main road, it's set back far enough to be quiet. We had a studio without a kitchen, which was fine for a one-night stopover. The room is adequately fitted out. It is beginning to show its age a little (carpet getting a bit... More

The room was adequate for a 1/2 night stay but I would hesitate to recommend longer. The dividing walls were very thin and sound travelled easily. Nice walk along the river. Shops and garage just across the road. We catered for ourselves so did not use the onsite restaurant or bar. Reasonably priced
