We enjoyed our 3 nights stay at turangi bridge lodge very much during our ski trip in July. The rooms are warm, beds are comfortable, I like the fireplace at the restaurant very much. We enjoy walking along the river, so beautiful.

We dropped into the Turangi Bridge Motel at the last minute and was perfect for our needs. The guy on reception was very polite and helpful with local travel options. The rooms are quite large, very clean and warm which was lovely. The restaurant/bar was also excellent with lots of local fish options. Best of all there was free, uncapped,... More

Thanks for your review. I'm sure the majority of places will be offering free WiFi before too much longer. It's just a pity we can't get Ultra Fast connectivity here in Turangi yet as I'd love to out that through the Motel paired with Smart TVs. Cheers, Brian (the guy in reception). More

Well this was the last place to stay on our central north island trip, and what a place. With our large family group we had two units with an adjoining room. This turned out to be the best arrangement for us. The motel units are more than comfortable and very warm. There is a spa and sauna available, however we... More

Bridge Motel on the edge of Turangi town is a great place to stay. Very friendly and helpful staff, making sure we were comfortable and warm enough. The bed in our unit is one of the better we had slept in. The restaurant meal was very good - even had dessert - delicious to say the least. Great, unlimited WiFi... More

While the room was nice, clean and tidy with kitchen facilities, which we paid extra for over a " standard room". The sign, directly above the electric hob stated, no cooking of shellfish, fish, curries and any strong smelling food would/could incur a cleaning and out of action (not being able to let the room) fee charged to us after...

Thanks for taking the time to post a review. The sign in question is a perfectly standard and polite request for guests to avoid cooking anything that will leave the room unable to be used by future guests. Most of our guests (all but yourselves to date) have taken the reasonable view and cooked their bacon & eggs or whatever... More

This is a great place to stay with nice, clean, comfortable rooms. Has a good restaurant and great bar with nice open fire. The service is excellent and the food superb - the fillet steak was simply spectacular! Great location next to the river set in well kept park-like grounds. Value for money is good and I will definitely stay... More
