TUI lodge is a very nice and very well cared for B&B run by a fabulous couple. Rooms are very spacious with a door to the patio. TV and fridge is in the Common room. Location is off the SH1 in a quiet street but super-close to town Centre with supermarket, restaurant and cafe. There is a nice river-walk very close to the b&b. Restaurants in Taurangi are good, the options are however a bit limited. Taupo as the next larger city is about 40km.

Tui Lodge is a beautiful B&B set in immaculate gardens that attracted lots of native bird life including fan tails and of course, the tui! Ian and Frances are the most amazing hosts - always helping with suggestions when our plans had to be changed (the weather meant the alpine crossing wasn’t possible). Thank you for a wonderful stay!

The B&B is very large with a common lounge and a frig and tv. Rooms are spacious, clean and comfortable and all look out onto a 2 acre bountiful garden. Each room has private entry so it feels very quiet. Frances and Ian were the most hospitable hosts I have come across. Ian gave us maps of hiking and walking trails. Frances cooked us fabulous breakfast. They couldn't have been sweeter.

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 them ! " so we found the answer quite unpleasant. We didn't feel at home and didn't like the discussion with the owner at breakfast dealing with the financial market !!! All that for 540 NZD !

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. (I guess we may have difference of opinion on politics from time to time.
