Quite a way out of town, but close to a shop and reputable restaurant, this ordinary motel was just the ticket. Unfussy, clean, well supplied and efficiently run, it was excellent value and just what was required after a long drive.

Friends with a full house booked us in for one night between Christmas & New Year so we could catch up with them all and be within walking distance. We had a very comfortable stay with a spotless room, comfy bed and quiet unit away from the main road. We were greeted warmly by the new manager on what was...

Travelled to Taupo with another couple. I won't lie, we pulled up and thought hmm, we were mistaken. Place is absolutely spotless. Basic accommodation. Bed was comfy! Paid $125 per night and felt it was good money for what we got. Would recommend.

Last night we were forced to find accomodation in Taupo and everywhere was full. This would not have been our first choice but we were pleasantly surprised. The reception was welcoming, the room large, the linen awesome and very fresh. I understand it is new management. Very accomodating. Whilst we had a unit at the front, it was very quite...

The room was cosy and private however the pull out sofa which was supposed to be part of the room was broken and unusable and also impossible to sit...

We booked late in peak season so had limited options for our passing visit but the motel was spotless and while older it was perfectly appointed for our family of four. The beds were like clouds and so warm. Our only regret is that we were not able to stay longer.

Got a last minute booking and got a warm welcome. Plenty of space to park the car just outside the room. The room was clean and tidy but the fixtures and fittings are a little dated now. Good cooking facilities with lots of utensils. Friendly, helpful staff. Would definitely stay again.

Called in at the last minute due to the weather and received friendly service, and booked a two bedroom unit with lounge and kitchen. Parking was great and location was nice and quiet. The room was very clean and tidy with lots of space. Electric blankets and lots of extra blankets were appreciated given it had been snowing. Décor was...

Friendly managers, nice outdoor area for each unit with pretty garden. Good location with short walk to lake for swim and very short walk to dairy and great fish and chip shop. Good spacious living and bathroom, unit was clean and tidy. Furnishings are basic and bit dated but that didn't worry us. Bit hot inside at night but there...
