I've become a regular all year, once a fortnight approximately, one night, out the next morning. No fuss booking, payment. Parklands add that little bit extra like put the heater on for me to warm the room on cold evenings before I arrive. Room is comfortable with all the amenities. Dinner menu is scrumptious selection, I love the chicken and steak, shrimp entree washed down with a beer. I have started ordering lunch for the next days travel save calling into cafes. Always a childish glee looking inside what's to eat. Also continental breakfast before I hit the road in the morning. Just makes easy and no fuss. VG wifi too. Turangi can be 4 seasons in one day. Staff are friendly.

Disclaimer: Our travel dates were Nov-Dec 2019 (pre-covid) We stayed at one of the rooms and had a great time. It's a simple room, but is clean and has everything we need. Parking is no problem as they just let you park in front of your room. The large lawn is nice and we saw family playing outside. There was a bit of a wait to check-in. The customer in front of us was a regular and the reception staff was very warm and friendly. We chose this lodge because it has a dining restaurant. They can bring food to your room or you can dine in as well. We chose to dine in. There are some truckers (regulars) and they seem to have a great time. We were treated warmly and had a wonderful meal. The food was excellent!! It was a great stay if you are doing a roadtrip through NZ.
