Walking distance to the waterfront & town centre with plenty of optiions for eating out. Only negative was the parking outside... More

Close to town and the weekend rate was good value for Taupo. Our room had a separate bedroom for the kids and was spotlessly clean. The decor has been updated since we last stayed (before kids!). No issues. Would recommend and will be back!

Lovely central to everything and so clean tidy and spacious. It was a last minute decision for us to stay and it worked out beautifully. There's only one thing I will state which was unusual and that is they don't provide milk for your cuppa.

We stayed two days in the Acapulco motor in and we're very satisfied. Nothing special but big clean rooms made us feel at home immediately. There is a small kitchen with basic equipment which allows to cook some basic dishes. All important places of taupo (habour, I site, supermarket, restaurants etc...) are in walking distance and the lake is just... More

My wife and myself stayed for one night in a disabled room as she is in a wheelchair. The room was small and cramped. Outside the door was a security light on all night - it was like trying to sleep in a bus shelter! And to add to the pleasure of our stay, we awoke to a kitchen area... More

If you're looking for space for a family or group the apartment will serve you well. No complaints here, comfortable beds, good cooking facilities, spacious, a home away from home. Staff were awesome, friendly, very helpful and they know their local activities and eateries well. Can't fault the location and easy to find. Stayed two nights and would recommend this... More

We stayed in a one bedroom family motel unit with a spa off the main bedroom. Very clean and good supply of towels for the spa and bathroom, the beds were comfortable too. Full range of sky tv channels, free wifi, and a dvd player. For a family of four the kitchen was small, two elements and a bar fridge,... More

Only stayed one night, but good location - walking distance to lake, shops, restaurants. Reception staff were very helpful in pointing us to the must-do activities for our short visit. Our 2 bedroom apartment is very large, has everything you could need, especially if staying longer. ENORMOUS flat-screen tv
