We spent two nights at TUI Lodge. We had a large dark room with no fridge and no TV : everything was in a common room, so you had to get dressed to watch TV. therefore we didn't. We asked the owner if we could borrow a guide book for the day but we were told that "people usually keep... More

We are sorry there was a misunderstanding regarding borrowing a guide book. I suspect the book was a library book and not replaceable. We have a lot of free information available on the table for guests to take. The discussion re financial was only an opinion on the current common market situation.

The location was perfect for us as it was wonderfully quiet in a small street with a beautiful large garden. Supermarket and some restaurants were in easy walking distance. The short distance to Tongariro... More

We have just spent two nights at Tui Lodge. Our primary reason for choosing it was that we wanted to go fly fishing near Turangi and Ian is a very experienced and knowledgeable fishing guide.

Breakfast is something else particularly if you like Rhubarb. Lots of fresh fruit mainly from the garden. Also... More
