This motel is a great place to stay. It's location is walking distance to town and many restaurants. It is positioned with a clear, uninterrupted view of Lake Taupo. The rooms are immaculately clean, spacious and apartment styled, with two-storeys. Our room had a balcony with space to sit out from both the ground floor and the top storey. There...

We were here for two days, and their restaurant located at a great place, with the best taupo lake view and a lot of good restaurants around. Staffs are very friendly and they allowed us to check in 30 mins late because we were trapped at tongariro, and one of their staff even helped us to carry our luggages which...

Great place to stay in Lake Taupo. Right across from Lake and had a great view. They have a pool and hot tub, but was too cold for us to use the pool, however we did use the hot tub. Great location and only about. 5 minute walk to great restaurants and bars in the Taupo area. We stayed here...

This is a very conveniently placed and nice motel with welcoming staff and very tidy rooms. Our unit had a bed in the lounge connected to the small kitchenette and main bathroom and sliding doors to the deck and pool area. The upstairs had a master bedroom with an on-suite which includes a lovely spar-bath. The unit was spacious enough...

Spent two nights in this great property. Fantastic experience. It starts with check in. Very friendly service. Room got two floors. All amenities are five star rated. Great view from the room. Restaurants and the city is within walking distance. You wake up with the lake in view. Amazing experience. Definitely a repeat visit.

Brilliant accommodation. Very well located close to the town so short walk from all restaurants. The couple who run it Joy and Kevin were lovely and made sure we were all sorted, very helpful as we had small issue with our hire car. Accommodation was clean and comfortable and there was a hot tub to use. Bit to cold for...

Nice and comfortable and convenient place to stay. Easy walk to all bars and restaurants in the town area. Just off the main road so not much noise. Rooms have everything needed with upstairs for the main sleeping area and another two singles downstairs if needed. Kitchenette available for light meals. Nothing to complain about.

We arrived super early to the Chalet, but having given the lady on the desk prior notice this was no problem at all and she let us straight in to our room. The room was lovely, we stayed in the one bed deluxe. Two bathrooms, two big beds, a kitchenette, and two televisions. Room was clean, and had everything we...

Just a wonderful place to stay, the views of the lake are stunning as is the property itself. Our room was spotlessly clean, spacious and tastefully decorated. The staff are very friendly and have good knowledge of the local area. The motel is centrally located so everything is right on your doorstep, including the lake.
