10.0 Excellent
Pros: Accommodation was spotless and had a good supply of goodies for breakfast. Enjoyed the quiet location and patio overlooking the garden.
8.0 Excellent
Pros: Place was really clean and tidy, beds were comfortable and shower was great. Good amound of space in the rooms and the deck was really cool. Bonus: we had a cat visitor <3 The hosts were not at home but comunicated with us giving us all the instructions we needed. Parking was nice too as it was in front of the rooms, hidden from the street so we felt secured. Would stay again!
Cons: Only thing I have to mention is the breakfest. On the ad it says "fabulous" but it happened to be a continental one. Was a little frustraded because of the fabulous, as because is a B&B it led me to think it would be something home made or something. It is good to have the breakfest included, we appreciated, but maybe change it to "continental" instead of "fabulous" ?
8.3 Excellent
Pros: Super comfortable and clean and quiet.Very friendly owners.Loved the included breakfast and the fluffy visitor♡
10.0 Excellent
Pros: Peaceful and nice place close to the center.
10.0 Excellent
Pros: The room was quite close to the living quarters of the owners but we had enough privacy. The place was clean, the sheets and the bed super comfortable and we even had two bottles of fresh orange juice in addition to other breakfast items in the fridge. But the best part of the stay was the owner - he was really helpful, replied to us very quickly when we had questions before the stay (late arrival, early morning checkout, etc). We checked out in the morning but he let us leave the car for the day and even allowed to take a shower later after the hike. I don't think I've ever met so kind and friendly owners before. I would definitely stay there again!
9.0 Excellent
Pros: Comfortable room, good outside space to relax. Lovely host family, we really enjoyed talking to them and loved the cats and little dog. We did the Alpine Crossing and Sleep Peacefully is a superb base for this.

Cons: Nothing!
10.0 Excellent
Pros: Really comfy relaxing kitchen and living space inside and outside, great for meeting people! Logan was really helpful with our questions about the tongarario crossing.
9.0 Excellent
Pros: Very nice, relaxed and cosy place to stay. Very friendly and helpful staff, kitchen well equipped, very cosy lounge with fireplace, which was very nice to warm up after the Tongariro Crossing.
Cons: Only little downside: the acoustic insulation is not very well and the wooden floor is noisy, so you here other guest move around the place and flushing toilets (which you here in many places)
9.2 Excellent
Pros: Thanks to the amazing host. We had a lovely stay!
7.9 Good
Pros: Logan was a very nice host, very flexible with check in and out and even booked a shuttle for the Tongariro Crossing for us on very short notice. He also has a lot of good advice on what else there is to do in the area. The veranda was very nice to enjoy after a long hike. Big shared living room and well-equipped kitchen.
Cons: The shared kitchen was not too clean and it was a bit noisy early in the morning/at night because of people leaving for hikes. Our room with private ensuite was okay, but the bed was not very comfortable and the room was not that clean. Something to consider: If you plan to stay more than two days at Lake Taupo/Turangi it might make sense to stay in Taupo because Turangi is not a very lively town and there is more to do in Taupo especially also if you plan to go out to eat.
8.0 Excellent
Pros: House is so nice and has all prepared for people to meet the location and practice any kind of adventure!
Cons: Time close for check in too early, but in our case owner give us the instructions to enter.
Turangi Trout Lodge - Turangi - Building

9.4 Excellent (47 reviews)
Overview Reviews
With a stay at this cottage in Turangi, you'll be within a 10-minute drive of Lake Taupo and Turangi i-SITE Visitor Centre. Free self parking is available onsite.
9.6 Excellent
Pros: The house is very clean and tidy. All of my families loves here, especially the spa. It is warm in winter. That's a great place to stay!
9.6 Excellent
Pros: Well presented, very clean and a homely feel about the lodge. Sleep 5 adults very well. Two bathrooms made it easy for the 3 ladies in my family
8.3 Excellent
Pros: The house was in excellent condition, everything is well-appointed and of high quality. A few chairs on the ground floor (there's plenty on the first floor, but they're way to heavy to wield down the stairs) would be helpful, but otherwise nothing to complain about.
Cons: The landlady is ... well ... not very communicative. The only reason we saw her at all was that the wifi modem had conked out (before we came – so we had no wifi, and in fact received no excuse for that either ...), and she was to replace it on the morning we "checked out". I can live with that, but it's a bit ... unusual. The other thing was, we didn't realise that the house was a stand-alone affair – there is just this one house, with nobody around. My wife found that a bit eerie, although NZ is a very safe travel destination, and we had a very comfortable stay in the end.
10.0 Excellent
Pros: We stayed in peak winter and loved that the house had plenty of heating. Beds are comfortable and house in generally cozy. Thermal pools not far away
10.0 Excellent
Pros: Everything!!!

Pros: Great location and fantastic chalets for family travel. Would recommend for large families or extended family travel.
Cons: There was a Christmas function on next to the restaurant, with the restaurant located between the function and the bar. The function guests were wandering through the restaurant to get to the bar and leaving the door to the function open with loud music playing, and we were having a family conversation so we had to keep getting up to close the door so we could here each other. It was also very annoying to have groups of people continually traipsing back and forth past our table.

10.0 Excellent
Pros: Great location. Warm and clean and comfortable.
8.8 Excellent
Pros: A good choice. The room was large and had everything we needed. The kitchen was well-equipped (except for a pasta strainer!). Comfy beds and good shower. Great to have a playground on the property. The location is good for Turangi - very close to the centre of "town" and to the river. Loved hearing the Tuis singing. The restaurant serves good food, but try the Turangi Bridge Motel as well - yummy.
Cons: On one of the days the room wasn't serviced - I pointed this out, the motel apologised but I never found out what went wrong. It also wasn't perfectly clean to begin with - there was an old soap bar in the shower when we arrived. Also, the motel is a bit noisy as very close to the motorway. However, all in all we would recommend this motel and would stay here again.
10.0 Excellent
Pros: Very cute lodge, staff was very helpful and friendly. Rooms were clean and well stocked. Would stay again. Book directly through them, bookings.com rate was way higher, almost $50 more per night. We didnt realize this till we went to add a 3rd night and realized the difference.

Pros: The room was cosy and ckean
Cons: Bed was a bit small

8.0 Excellent
Pros: Great place to stay. Lovely owner
9.2 Excellent
Pros: The unit was large and airy, although there was no remote for the heat pump but I'm sure that was an oversight. The bathroom was small but adequate.
Cons: No remote for the heat pump and the hairdryer controls didn't work. It had to be turned on & off at the power point and the control to adjust the heat was broken so it was set on the highest setting. In fairness, this is probably not something they would know unless they were advised of it, which I did.
7.5 Good
Pros: It was a great property apart from the internet being down which just made the kids hang around us more haha
Cons: Internet down
10.0 Excellent
Pros: Excellent reception by staff. Super friendly and Denise was very clear and helpful in running through house rules etc. Facilities were great for our family of 11!

9.2 Excellent
Pros: The unit was large and airy, although there was no remote for the heat pump but I'm sure that was an oversight. The bathroom was small but adequate.
Cons: No remote for the heat pump and the hairdryer controls didn't work. It had to be turned on & off at the power point and the control to adjust the heat was broken so it was set on the highest setting. In fairness, this is probably not something they would know unless they were advised of it, which I did.
7.5 Good
Pros: It was a great property apart from the internet being down which just made the kids hang around us more haha
