Right on the lake. Room was very clean and it is a very short walk to restaurants and shops. Stayed two nights and would happily stay longer if we had the time. Good room rates were great given the location and proximity to everything.

This is a great affordable place for groups of people to stay. Very close to town, restaurants and bars. Leave your car there and walk. They also have a fabulous indoor heated pool which is fairly large. It's a little dated but tidy and clean. None Iv the rooms really have a Lakeview. But it's right opposite the lake which...

Main room had double bed and single bed as well as sofa for the kids. Double room off that for us. It was practical, clean and comfortable. Very handy for walking into shops, restaurants and bars. Lovely to go for an evening stroll along the banks of the lake.

We stayed over summer 2014/15 - although its not the flashest, it is still comfortable & clean, with a inside pool, it is right across from the lake, we stayed bottom floor, so no views of the lake from the room, all rooms are facing away from the lake, so you have to walk up the driveway to see lake,...

The family rooms are comfortable and quite a good size. It is one big room with lots of beds. It would work well with kids. The room we were in did not have a lake view but the lake was across the road. Just be aware that if you check out on Christmas Day you need to check out at...

The great thing about this hotel/motel is its location. It is within walking distance to restaurants bars and supermakets. Although a little run down I found the rooms to be ok and I slept well. Being located right on the lake this hotel is great value for money.

We stayed at the Absolute Lake View Motel for 2 nights. Room in general was spacious and well equipped, although bedroom was on the small size (couldn't shut the door without having to move the bed slightly). It was within walking distance to restaurants and shops, and had lovely views over Lake Taupo of Mount Ruapehu. Although on the main...

I stayed here this past weekend for the Taupo half marathon. On arrival I was greeted in a really friendly and efficient manner. My room was warm, comfy bed and great kitchen facilities for the price. Best of all, when there was a small hiccup in the room I initially paid for, a generous solution was promptly found. Great stay
