When we approached the Motel I had my reservations regarding this accomodation as from the carpark the building is dated and uninviting. However once inside I was pleased to discover that the rooms are 2 storey with a lounge area on the ground floor and a large bedroom with ensuite on the 1st floor. The stairs are very steep and...

stayed for a couple of days. rooms were more like apartments with two levels. cleanliness was passable but the patch work of painting and fixes were not fantastic. service was ok but no housekeeping unless you stay more than 4 days which i thought was poor taking into account the premium prices we were paying.good location and close to everything....

The motel is conveniently located and quite comfortable. We stayed for two nights and were happy with the service and room. Having suc great views was a pleasant surprise and the in-room spa was lovely. The pool and spa outdoors looked nice but we didnt have the time to use them on this stay. The one annoyance was being charged...

Hôtel near the lake, welcome was OK but nothing special! Rooms were Leo OK but very hot when we came in. There was also a disturbing smell in the room. Didn't mind so much as we had to wake up very early in the morning but not the best experience we had... Wouldn't go back if I had the choice...

Stayed here 2nights 27nov16. I am a travel agent, and am spoiled when it comes to accommodations. I was slightly nervous staying at a motel. This place is a perfect location, central to downtown. The staff was so nice, and catered to every request we had. Look no further in Taupo. Stay here! Great price, and the rooms are like...

Very good location, walking distance to the shop areas where you can find food and trinkets. It's also near the Taupo boat tour area. Overall the place is cosy enough. I got the 2 storey room with a great view and if there's one thing I love, it's the heater in the washroom, if you have coming out of a...

Had a stop over for a night on our way up to Auckland from Wellington, and were very happy with our room. Two floors, two bathrooms, very spacious, with a kitchenette and spa bath. Massive bed was very comfortable and waking up with a view over the lake was very nice. Friendly service, and a great overall experience. Only small...

We stayed for two nights in a two bedroom apartment. The location is very central, with a short walk to the main strip of restaurants and shops. It is also situated opposite Lake Taupo. The two bedrooms were upstairs and shared a toilet. There kitchen, lounge and bathroom were located downstairs. The bathroom also has a backdoor that leads outside....

Nice enough place albeit dated in kitchen area. Not enough towels, very creaky upstairs flooring. No power points near a mirror which is not helpful getting ready for a lady. Walls are paper thin and not ideal when the drunken louts next door find a singing competition a good idea from 0215-0430. I've woken tired and not happy after my...

We stayed there for two nights. Even though our room was on the ground floor and facing the street, we loved the room very much. It was clean and neat. I like the room that separated the dining and sleeping area. Very cheerful host! I miss Lake Taupo! I wished I could stay longer... The only thing I dislike was...
