Anglers Paradise Motel

Reviewed May 26, 2012

My little family of 4 were happily surprised to see that I had actually been here 14 years earlier as a teenager with friends and well, it was lovely then so much so we stayed for an extra night. The pool had a gate erected and pergola over the spa bath since and was just absolutely LOVELY! Hubby and I along with the children took advantage of the spa bath, a balmy 40 degrees mmmm .... Our room #9 had all the staples of a room, 2 bedrooms able to sleep 5 comfortably, good heating, clean cooking facilities, shower and loo facilities, electric blankees (essential for cold places like this durng winter especially!!). Good value and place to stay, very family friendly. Stock up on food from the super market and bunker down if you prefer. Theres a Bk and a lovely cafe "Thyme For Food" that was just delicious and cute.. Id defo g back if I need to stay in Turangi x

With clean rooms superbly equipped with all one would need to spenda night or two, we strongly recommend this hotel. The owners were all super friendly and willing to offer their help. Only one note, avoid making any reservations with Turangi Alpine Crossing through the Hotel, as the agency service was abonimable, arriving one hour late and picking up people on the road!! It was not the receptionist's fault though!!

Thank you very much for your recommendation of Anglers Paradise Motel. We do like to talk with our guests and assist them where we can.
Regarding the late pick up by Turangi Alpine Shuttle, at the time we received this review I queried them about this and found that the bus had been delayed for some time at the site of a road accident and all subsequent pickups had been late that afternoon. The driver said he had informed passengers of the reason for the delayed pickup but obviously not all. We apologize for the inconvenience to you and to Turangi Alpine Shuttle for the delay in responding to this review. They go to considerable effort to give good service.

We stayed at Anglers Paradise for two nights in February this year and had a lovely stay. The hotel is just off the main road through Turangi and set in beautifully kept grounds. Our room was very spacious and spotlessly clean. The kitchen was well set-up with a good range of utensils and complimentary tea, coffee and milk.
The hotel has a couple of BBQ's which you can wheel over to your room and use at no extra charge on the basis that you clean them when you're done. We were very impressed with this and had a lovely BBQ and sat outside our room in the garden to eat dinner.
There is a pool though unfortunately we didn't have time to use this, laundry facilities, wifi and a restaurant on site.

The owners were very friendly and really made us feel welcome, would happily stay there again.

Room Tip: I'm not sure if all rooms back onto gardens but worth asking for one that does.

We chose this place as our base for New Year with some friends, who had rented a house, but we wanted to have a place of our own. The motel has all the necessities, including a pool and spa. The kitchen has all the things you need and the bed is ok. There is a heater in the room as well. The only problem we found was that the bathroom floor kept flooding. We did let the owners know, who came in but did not seem to know where the problem came from. We were not offered to be moved into another room. In fact we had to ask for towels ourselves, to keep the soaking the water off the floor. This was quite inconvenient and I do wish we were offered another room to move into. The spa is a nice idea for the evening relaxation, its under a little roof, so even though it was raining all the time we were there, we still enjoyed the experience - though the actual "bubbles" in the spa did not seem to work. All in all a cosy place in a small town.

Room Tip: We had the studio and it was spacious, nice outlook to the garden and pool area.

Every year we end up in Turangi for a weekend. Every year we stay at the Anglers Paradise.

Why? It's certainly not the only motel in that towhship. But it's handy to all of the amenities, indeed everything you need is within a few minutes walk.

It's handy to the main roads but reasonably quiet when it comes to traffic noise. There's good parking -- not just for occupants' cars but also for motorcycles, which is how we tour.

Rooms are light and airy and fastidiously cleaned and well presented. The bed is comfy and sleep-filled.

If you're an angler, there are plenty of racks for waders and other specialist apparel. There's also an area where you can dress and fillet your catch, and also a gas barbecue where you can cook it!

The pool and spa are central to all the units. The spa is a particularly enjoyable and relaxing way to end a day.

Friendly and obliging hosts round out the experience of this delightful and welcoming motel.

Get yourself to the Anglers Paradise. We'll be there again next October.
