What a delightful place to stay. Clean, beautifully retro in its styling and with a lush quality shower. Quiet location, close to lake and amenities. And fur babies are welcome, it don’t get better than this! Highly recommended.

It was great to stay in a place which had a different vibe to the normal motel. Spacious, comfortable and interesting retro furniture. Easy access to room and friendly advice on local sights and restaurants.

The room was equipped with everything you needed. Very nice and very comfortable. It was near to Lake Taupo and the Huka Falls. Die owners were very nice and had a lot of tips for us. Highly recommended!
