              It is across the main road from most restaurants and stuff in Turangi, but driving it's still 5 minutes or less. The rooms are small but clean and nice with a fan in each one. The bathroom is a squeeze but also nice enough. The family that run the place were super kind and helpful!

              It was closed to the township and just behind was a walking path along river. It would be a perfect location for traut fishing. The room is basic and small. Only the problem was there were so many mosquitoes. It was very hot day and the room got even hotter without opening windows.

              Our room was perfect! We are a US family traveling with our college-age son, who has just finished at a NZ university for semester abroad. The Sportsman's Lodge was so clean and comfortable with really convenient , clean and charming community space. The kitchen was large and had lockers for our room's dishes and storage for our food. Fridges were abundant and clean. I awoke earlier than the rest in our room, so I went to the kitchen to make coffee and walked the beautiful grounds until everyone was ready to get up. The lodge is also so close to town . We hiked the Tongariro Alpine Crossing the next day. It was only 25 min to the Ketetahi parking lot. Perfect for us.
