We (3 ppl) stayed the night during one of their apparently famous “thursday curry nights”. The curry was great however the service was rude. The lady owner hurriedly led us to our seats, only to snap several times “not there” as she pointed out reserved tables. At our table, we were told “sit there” and had 2 different menus thrown onto our table. None of the menus indicated their normal meals, and upon asking for a copy, she scoughed and threw a third menu in our general direction and walked away. Her husband seemed more polite upon bringing out our entree 45 minutes late and told us that they had larger tables to tend to. We (3 ppl) apparently were not as important as a table of 7. Several other groups of two or three dined and left during our wait.

Unfortunately not many places to stay and dine while in Turangi. Perhaps Burger King around the corner is a safer bet

We stayed overnight and found the management to be friendly and helpful. The pub has trout fishing momentos and books which add to the atmosphere and it is worthwhile having a meal there as it is good value. The rooms are reasonably basic, but comfortable, warm and clean. Pets are allowed outside on the verandah.

The rooms were adequate with the facilites one would expect. The location is good - near the river which is an easy walk across the lodge grounds. The restaurant was an amazing find!

My husband and I happened to stumble on this establishment and were overly thrilled by this find. Found the staff to be helpful and quite professional. Luckily for us we arrived at the Bridge Fishing Lodge just in time to consume a decidable Jamaican influenced buffet; which is something I found out later is the origin of the Lady owner. A great family business, would recommend that if you are in the little town of Turangi to stop by and say hello – and if the time permits, stay and taste Joyce’s homeland culinary delights!
All the best Bridge Fishing Lodge

Good place to base yourself if fishing in Turangi.

Tongariro River is right at your foot-steps.
Rooms are simple , But good value for the money.

Thoroughly enjoyed staying here.
