From the moment you arrive Dennis and Fran make you feel at home and are a wealth of local knowledge, the location is great right opposite the lake.

We visited Accent on Taupo for our family holiday which is located directly across the road from the lake. When we first arrived were greeted warmly by the owners and they were very nice and approachable throughout our stay.

Dennis welcomed us like family. He was a wealth of information about the area(and what a stunning place to visit). We took his advice and had the best time. So much so we booked another night. Thanks for raising the Aussie flag for our stay! Great rooms, amazing views and the 'hostest with the mostest'. Highly recommend !

Lovely stopover. Friendly and obliging owners who ensure you are comfortable. Quiet room with plush mattress. Easy access and helped me onto their wi-fi. It was a rather chilly night and the owners heated the room before I arrived.

We received a warm welcome when we arrived and the unit was clean and roomy with all the facilities as advertised. The setting beside the lake was lovely and it was quiet, although not too far from the shops bars and restaurants in the town.

Cosy, comfortable, super clean and quite large unit with a well equipped kitchen; good location (only a few kilometers away from the city center). Accent was perfect for us and we truly enjoyed our short stay further enhanced by the wonderful welcome of our hosts. Highly recommended!

We had the garden room, which was separate to the other rooms. It had a view of the large field behind and was a very homey type room, with an extremely comfortable bed. We were made to feel very welcome by the hosts, who were very helpful with any questions we had. Very clean and well maintained. My only negative...

We had booked the lake view cottage and it was a stunning place to stay in. The highlight was the central hall and the kitchen which had amazing views into the lake outside. Well appointed kitchen and other facilities too. Staff was friendly and helpful.
