Kate showed us to our room and put the heater and TV on. We went back to restaurant for dinner(we didn't do this last time). We sat... More

We have stayed before and we will stay again. The units are clean and comfortable and quiet. The restaurant serves tasty well presented food. The staff are cheerful and helpful. The accomodation is in a good half way position when travelling from Wellington to Opotiki, just off the highway.

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
