The resort was close to all the The The The resort was near the activities in the town. The rooms were small and there were scarcely enough dishes. The refrigerator was tiny. However, there was covered parking and the unit and grounds were clean.

Excellent accommodation's! We have 2 young children and the Leisure Lodge was perfect for us. It is close to everything in Turangi. Our 3yr old loved the children's play room and trying to play table tennis in the rec. room, as well as the community pool a short walk away. All of the staff are very helpful and nice.
