Spacious and private. Had 8 beds across three rooms, one with ensuite. Eight people would find the living area and kitchen a bit small but would be comfortable for 6 people. Staff we friendly and helpful. Close to Turangi township which has a supermarket. Kitchen is pretty well equipped. Didn’t eat at the restaurant so can’t comment on that. Would stay again.

The bird song and the locality to the river are quite unique. the staff were all very friendly and helpful. I could not get through to reception from out chalet on the phone in the room - it didn't give an option to leave a message either - so i had to ring the lodge on my mobile phone and leave a message. There was no instruction/information folder in the unit. It was not clear that the Spa was out of action when booking. No face cloths in the units.

Wonderful setting in spacious grounds. Air conditioning unit in the chalet was complicated to adjust. The unit from the neighbouring chalet was noisy. Staff very helpful. Dinner was great.
