Creel Lodge Turangi Reviews
Home away from home! Sep 26, 2010
Creel Lodge at Turangi is our number one favorite. It is very unique as it made me feel like home.It was a little tricky though, trying to find this lodge as the sign of this lodge is not clear and you can easily miss this. This lodge is about a minute's drive from Turangi down town.
However this lodge is located right in front of the famous Tangariro River that made this lodge so special. You just walk out of the back of the lodge and viola the Tangariro River!
There were a few Barbeque areas in the compound of this lodge. It was too bad we did not get to do this due to the rainy day. The unit we had was just right opposite the barbeque pit. I think it would be so much fun if we had our barbeque dinner in front of our unit.
The one bedroom unit we had is huge! We felt like home. There were 2 sofas in the living room area, TV, coffee table, 2 kitchen cabinets, dinning table and chairs. There was a full kitchen that we could make a full meal out of it.
Although the bathroom is not as big as we wanted, no bathtub but it was amble space with enough amenities.
The separate bedroom was spacious with a king size bed and electronic blanket.
This is definitely value for money and if we ever go back to Turangi, we will definitely goo back to this lodge.
