At a last minute loss on where to stay in Turangi for the night, I came across Creel Lodge Motel. Booked online and set off.
Easy to find off the main road but when you arrive through the driveway you are greeted by dozens of native shrubs and plants and native birds. It's like a small piece of paradise. We were shown to our room which was a 1 bedroomed lodge. What I loved about it was how clean and spacious it was and it was fully equipped with a full kitchen, including a stove which you don't often see in motels.
For the price paid, I really would have expected to pay more. The setting is so peaceful and tranquil, easy walk to the river, lovely landscaped gardens and BBQ setting for all to enjoy. Although the motel was fully booked, you would not have guessed. The guests were quiet and not at all rowdy.
You are also able to order a continental breakfast which would be delivered to your room but why bother when the fabulous cafe is at the front. Well worth a visit.
I would return in a heartbeat.More
