Was a wonderful stay and was a highlight as far as accommodations while we were in NZ. Affordable, clean, great view of the river, just wonderful new owners there that were so accommodating. Free unlimited wifi at the restaurant!!! Rarity on the island. Great breakfast. 5+ stars in my book

We had a standard studio room (one queen bed and one single bed) which was great. The service was very friendly and staff were helpful. The room was modern and clean. Overall we had an excellent two night stay. Would definitely recommend this to others and will definitely be staying again.

Thanks very much for taking the time to post a review Laura. We purchased the Motel on September 1st (just a week ago) and we're now working hard to put a few changes in place. They include a new satellite based TV system. The current one is UHF and in this area the reception is, as you say, hopeless! We're... More

The motel is cute and good size, with good central location to Lake Taupo, Taupo City and ski fields. The staff were friendly and chatty, good service all round. The room was clearly a bit dated but then again, this is a motel and in NZ. The bed was fairly comfortable, however the bathroom was a bit lacking, as was... More

Recently returned from a fly fishing trip. This was a nice place to stay that was very convenient to both shops and, most importantly, the Tongariro River. The owners are very hospitable and really tried to make the stay enjoyable. The restaurant has excellent food. Excellent choice.

We only stayed one night as we were just passing through. The huge fireplace was awesome, great for sitting around having a drink. Food was excellent too. The staff are wonderful, very friendly and nothing is too much hassle.

Friendly helpful staff. The accommodation is adequate for the price charged. The meals are very good with a varied menu. Although the beds do not have thick duvets (on a cold frosty night) there are electric blankets and heaters. We were just passing through so it was all we needed. If you are not too keen on trucks it could... More

Stayed three nights here just by chance and loved every minute of it. People in waders fishing in the river nearby, beautiful Lake Taupo, volcanoes, a snow field with a lovely mountain cafe, a comfortable room with a kitchen, a lovely restaurant on the property and friendly and helpful staff. What more could you want when on holidays? Try out... More

This was the second visit to this motel. Really enjoyed it the first time so decided to go back. The staff are lovely and friendly. The room is comfortable and nicely furnished. Good showers. Restaurant meal was superb, waitresses were very nice and friendly. However, on getting into bed I noticed black animal hairs on the sheets. As it was... More

We stayed at Turangi Bridge Motel while driving north from Wellington last week. It was a studio with a queen bed for my husband and I and a single for our daughter. The room was nice and clean and just what we were after - even if the decor was a little bit dated. The managers/owners were very accommodating as... More
