Everything you could ask for in one handy location. Top fishing on your doorstep, warm self-contained units, comfortable beds with the best pillows ever, high pressure shower as hot as you can stand it, bar & restaurant on site with delicious menu choices, friendly helpful staff and the added bonus of a beauty spa on site for massages, facials etc....

A night was spent en-route to Northland and we would be more than happy to stay again. The motel was very clean and while on the main road was very quiet. There was a good restaurant attached also. Unfortunately Sky was not working through no fault of the Motel owners. We wouldn't hesitate to recommend this as a good place... More

Thanks for your comments and we're glad you enjoyed your stay here. We don't have Sky here as the cost of it is ridiculous and the service very average. More

Turangi Bridge Motel provides even more than you expect. We really liked our stay there: clean, warm and comfortable. It gives you everything you need for a holiday. Good location, easy to find. Would like to stay there again.

The place is located overlooking the Tongariro River, fishing haven for fly fishing enthusiasts. Friendly staff, superb food. Ideal place in all seasons. Equipped with massage and all pampering services for all

Thanks very much. I'm glad you enjoyed your stay here. Just to be clear to anyone reading this the massages mentioned are not part of the service as such but available from the lovely professionals at the on-site Tongariro MediSpa so don't be frightened off thinking I'll be offering you massages!

Stayed the night before moving onto Tongariro for the alpine crossing. Got here late and the motel did the trick. Comfortable spacial room with beds comfortable enough for a good sleep which certainly helped before the Alpine walk. Had the fish and chips and the restaurant and enjoyed them very much. Good, friendly staff as is the custom in New... More

Great accommodation option for us for a lazy weekend to Turangi. The addition of a playground is good and I think the rooms have had a lick of paint. The free wi fi is a nice touch. They could do with Sky tv and a hair dryer but overall quite suitable.

Thanks. Hairdryers are available to pick up from reception. We won't have Sky here while we own it. Terrible content and ridiculous price. We're holding out for the fast broadband so our guests can watch what they want when they want. More

Centrally in the North Island, we chose this motel as it is approximately halfway between Auckland and Wellington, and because they agreed we could bring our "fur baby". Pets presumably are "by arrangement". We enjoyed the stay on the way down so much we booked to stay there on the way home too. Excellent quiet room, good restaurant and bar... More

The rooms were clean and well appointed, and reasonably priced. We have stayed here several times in the past. The family rooms are interlinked with a linking door for privacy or open options if you need to apply a bit more supervision.

Stayed two nights in June 2016 and were very happy. Brian & Kaye were friendly, welcoming, and helpful. The rooms are warm, clean & tidy, and have all the basic necessities. My family and I had two adjoining rooms which worked perfectly for five of us. The kitchenette was great for Brekky, and we had two very enjoyable dinners at... More

This was my third overnight stay; room was warm, clean and comfortable as usual. I came prepared as I know by now that there was only a fridge, toaster and kettle in terms of cooking facilities in the room chosen by me, but with a bit of pre-planning you can still make yourself a decent meal. Grateful as ever for... More
