About us

Sportsmans Lodge is in the heart of New Zealand's famous Central Plateau. Its mountains, lakes and rivers, walking and mountain bike tracks make this area an amazing outdoor playground. If you're planning an extended stay in Turangi to soak up the outdoor action or simply be amongst some of New Zealand's stunning scenery, then our motel, Sportsmans Lodge, is the ideal Turangi accommodation base for you.

Our comfy rooms and friendly owners, Doug and Betty, will make you feel right at home. The rooms are fresh, clean and, most of all, inexpensive. The lodge is a gem that doesn't disappoints and is just perfect for relaxing with other guests at the end of a busy day. It has rustic charm and homely character that makes guests want to linger and soak up the classic Kiwi-style atmosphere. Our self-catering kitchen is a real hit with our guests. It is as much a place for chatting with other guests about their day’s activities as it is a place for preparing and eating culinary concoctions.

There is such a convivial atmosphere around the lodge when fishermen and walking groups are staying. The tales and laughter about their day’s activities and pride in their fishing catch creates such a buzz amongst the guests. It's also a great place of family gatherings or mini conferences. You too can become part of this when you choose to stay at Sportsmans Lodge.

We welcome you to pop in and check out our motel sometime. We can help you plan your outdoor activities and can arrange transport for you. We will go out of our way to make your time at the lodge homely, comfortable and the very best it can be.
