Lovely modern units, really enjoyed our stay here, the rooms are spacious and well kitted out, the heater and lights were on in our room when we arrived on a very cold dark night so we were well impressed. The small personal touches can make such a big difference and this place surely knows how to make their guests feel...

we have just stayed 1 night in this lovely motel. In a excellent position, next to a supermarket and directly near main road, so easy to find. The management was friendly and helpful. The room was really clean and spacious. The only remark I would say is we would have loved a heater in the bathroom.

Excellent half way stop between Auckland and Wellington. Craig and Angela were very welcoming. The unit was very clean and the facilities were all I needed. I would be happy to stay again. The lodge is close to all the shops and tourist attractions.

A wonderful place to stay, peaceful, comfortable, top presentation and lovely friendly staff. An excellent price, close to town and spa pools for that bit of extra relaxing. Hope to return again soon.

The Parklands Motor Lodge is very conveniently located (yards of SH1) - both for those who are staying simply to break up a long journey and also for those who need a base to explore the area (include the Tororingo crossing) for a few days. The staff were very friendly and helpful. The suite was immaculately presented, with excellent attention...

This place is great, clean and tidy. Craig the owner is a cool cat who in the evening mans the bar. Restaurant on site really good..... not Michelin level but good. Has spa pools and sauna and generally is just a great spot to stay for a few days. This is how a motel in NZ should be!!!!! Hi

This motel provided a comfortable and reasonably priced stay close to the centre of Turangi. Rooms were clean and practical and afforded us a base for whitewater rafting and the Tongariro Crossing. I would be happy to return.

It was a great experience to have stayed at the Asure Parklands Motor Lodge. Its owner and manager, Craig, gave me good tips to take advantage of the options that the region offers. Not to mention that the structure of the rooms in Asure Parklands Motor Lodge is of the highest quality.

This was a clean hotel. The grounds were neatly kept and we were given a carton of milk at check in for our tea!! The beds were comfortable and the rooms were an average size.
