River Birches Lodge is the best of both worlds- elegant hotel quality rooms in an absolutely beautiful natural setting-you step out of your room into a magnifient garden to hear the sound of the Tongariro River. Huge windows make you feel that you you are sleeping under the stars while enjoying a luxurious bedroom! This beautiful house in a quiet neighbourhood of Turangi is just steps from the Tongariro River walking trail. The hosts, Anthea and Bill are very helpful, gave us excellent suggestions for things to do, booked us a restaurant in Turangi and very kindly drove us there and back. Breakfast was very good, served in the light and airy dining area.

This property is in a quiet neighbourhood close to a river. Anthea,the host, makes you very welcome and offers great advice on what you can do while staying in the Turangi area. The accommodation is of the highest quality with top class fittings and furnishings. The breakfast provided by Anthea is more than adequate and she will do her best to provide what ever you would like. All in all this is a first class lodge.

Room Tip: All the rooms are good

We stayed in the Admirals' room with a full view of the beautiful and creative garden.
A wonderful room to relax in with a large bathroom, heated floor, deep bath and the sound of the nearby river.
Anthea helped us plan our activities and cooked wonderful meals while we explored the beauty of the Central Plateau. We walked around Lake Rotopounamu with its kauri forests and rich birdlife and took in the amazing vistas from the top of the chair lift on Mount Ruapehu.
We can highly recommend River Birches Lodge for a wonderful holiday.

Set in a residential neighborhood, River Birches is a small oasis of tranquility. We stayed at the Major's Room, which is apart from the main house, with view of the beautiful garden. It felt very secluded and luxurious. Very nice host, who happily shares information about the area, things to see and doo, and helps book restaurants etc in the area. Very nice place to stay in the Turangi area.

Room Tip: Major's room is perfect for honeymooners, or just couples that don't want to be disturbed.

We stayed in the cottage next to the B&B. it's really more of an entire house. The place is amazing. Everything was like new. The style is clean and modern. Full kitchen and living area. Washer /dryer. The back garden with Koi pond was elegant and peaceful. The owner was graceful, helpful and organized. I could describe River Birches the same way. You will never want to leave.
