We stayed here for a night booking two of the units, 3 adults and 3 kids. Very impressed with the service, accommodation and gardens - excellent! It was such a good place to stay that we booked another night for later in our holiday.

Thanks for the review on behalf of your family. We love to see and hear the kids enjoying themselves in the garden and on the reserve behind the complex. Laughter is a great sound! And now you know where we are and what we can offer your group we hope to see you again! Regards Fran - Host

The owners are very kind and went out of their way to be helpful to us. They provided us with information and a weather report for the hike we were planning to do the next day (Tongariro Alpine Crossing), and they helped us book Waitomo Caves. The room was very clean and exactly what we needed. We wouldn't dream of...

One of the best parts of our 'job' is assisting guests with their activities plans as we get to tell them about some of the lesser known things to see and do in the district. The Tongariro Alpine Crossing is a favourite for many guests and being able to give them up to date weather forecasts really helps them select...

Good standard place with all above average facilities. A little tired decore compared to others in Taupo but it has kiwi charm and just being across the road from the lake helps. Taupo is always worth a visit.

My husband and I stayed overnight in the guest room, which has direct access to the off-leash reserve just behind the motel. It was great to be able to have our wee pooch with us in the room (in his own playpen, with puppy training pad). Our bed was very comfy, though the pillows were a little on the firm...

We had a wonderful view of Lake Taupo, although we were in the end unit so I'm sure the other units don't have much of a view except from the porch. Our room had one bedroom with a king size bed and a living room with two twin beds. My friend and I ended up sleeping on the twin beds...

Thanks for the comprehensive review. It is appreciated as it helps others understand the property better. We work with our guest who are arriving after 9pm (normal closing time) as we do know that travel times can start late and end later. So just call us if you are going to be arriving after 9pm and we will stay open...

When travelling with a dog you won't find anything better than this. A council reserve out the back for your pet to run free and the lake out the front with tiled walkways to enjoy the lake side. Our unit able to sleep four comfortably. Bathroom very compact with a small shower and cramped toilet access, which maybe tricky for...

Guests with dogs do love the location. We are very fortunate to have the reserve behind the complex and the path along the lake is extremely popular with everyone. Make sure you request a pet room when you book to avoid disappointment as not all of our rooms are pet friendly.

Lovely owners/hosts and super clean and tidy rooms. If you're planning on staying in taupo this is the place to stay. Perfect for us and our pup to relax and plenty of space for our dog to run around with the big reserve right outside the doorstep.

We have limited pet rooms so make sure you book early to avoid disappointment when travelling with pets. Our bonus is the great reserve behind for exercising the pets (and children) in a safe environment.

Checking in is more akin to visiting friends. Dennis makes you most welcome and has lots of info on Taupo's restaurants and attractions. We stayed in the Guest Room, which is quite small but perfectly ok for a 1-2 night stay. It's perfect if you have a dog as this room opens almost directly onto a dog friendly reserve behind...
