This is a motel with pleasant grounds and a very decent bar and restaurant. The owners are terrifically helpful and friendly. The facilities are not fancy but they are spacious, clean, and comfortable. Turangi is a great base for fly fishing, with the famed Tongariro River close by. We used it as a base for hiking. The weather was not...

We use this place is for work, and it is perfectly acceptable, it's not the Ritz, but it's good enough for a business traveler or a family to stop in for a night or two. I would certainly stay again and will advise my colleagues to do the same. There is an on site restaurant (although we didn't eat in...

We stayed one night here in order to do the Tongariro crossing. The room was clean and comfortable with a comfortable bed, and the motel is set in nice grounds, convenient for the state highway and the town. Staff were friendly. Please note in the studios the kitchen has no hob or oven / microwave. Sound carries easily and we...

We stayed there two nights to do some bird watching in the area. Even though the weather did not cooperate, the warm reception we got from the Motor Lodge was enough to make up for the rain. The room was basic, but clean and serviceable.

Perfect room for 3 adults to stopover on a trip from Wellington to Auckland. Nice new kitchen. Very clean and had everything we needed. For a big complex it was very quiet.. Good to have restaurant on site, but on this occasion we did not use it.

After two nights staying at a cabin in the local campsite we were ready for a change and found Parklands staff extremely accommodating. Rooms were spacious and warm with good facilities. Motor lodge itself has great space, tn is court, spas and restaurant and bar although your also very close to the main Turangi cafes.

We were attending a get together in Turangi with a large number of people. We had booked and paid for cheap accommodation at a run down camp. When we arrived after a 5 hour drive and saw the place we said 'let's try to get a motel'. Well, it was a long weekend so accommodation was a little hard to...

We've stayed here previously and found it to be value for money. The buffet meal in the restaurant was wonderful. We will return again and recommend to others. It is very centrally located for touring around the central north island.
