We stayed in a studio unit. Room is basic and but sufficient. It does not have a kitchenette, but there was a fridge, microwave and a toaster. Plus enough crockery. As this is no sink, only the bathroom vanity, it is a bit difficult to clean the crockery. Bathroom is also basic and I recommend the owners to add some additional facilities, hooks or towel rack, so towel can dry overnight. Although the room is for three persons there is only a small dining table with two chairs. For us no problem, but if you book with three people it will be.

We stayed for one night at Turangi Bridge Motel. This is our third 'one night stay' in Turangi, at three different motels, and we've been happy every time. The family unit we stayed in comprises two interconnecting units at less than the price of the two units individually. A clever and convenient option for families. The units were clean and tidy, but were starting to show their age a little. Given the climate, heat pumps would have been a nice touch. One small gripe... one of the legs of the bed was damaged meaning that the bed was unstable. We didn't notice this until well after reception had closed (I'm sure something would have been done if reception was still open). Given the way the bed had been propped up, I can't believe that housekeeping weren't aware of the issue as the bed could not have been made without the bed leg falling off. Despite that issue, we would happily stay again.

Last minute stop en route from Auckland to Wellington on the eve of the epidemic lockdown. We were well received and had a choice of room styles. Clean and comfortable and good meals and drinks available at the bar/restaurant. This has become a favourite place - good local walks, too.
