Stayed one night in unit close to road, great view down the lake, bathroom a bit of a squeeze, but fine for an overnight stay. Internet a bit hit and miss. Kitchenette was compact but adequate. Was pleasantly surprised by lack of road noise for being so close to road.

Just a quick overnight stay in a simple studio, but I wanted for nothing. I received a very warm welcome, and the unit was clean, well maintained and very comfortable. Great bed, nice linen, good powerful shower. Kitchen facilities were simple and would not suit for a longer stay, but adequate for my needs. The location is excellent, just across...

This is a brilliant place to stay if you're touring New Zealand. Based on the shore of Lake Taupo, the views of the mountains, lake, wildlife etc are stunning. Our top floor twin room studio is spacious, with comfortable, clean beds and a large en-suite. Serviced daily with good quality toiletries and lovely fluffy towels. As a base for exploring...

Clean and tidy but basic. Good spa bath in our room. Shower looked pretty rough and could do with a makeover. Plunge coffee supplied was only enough for a single cup. Ground floor room was okay but no view of the lake. Second floor might be better. Bit noisy at night with the main road so close but otherwise a...

Great motel; clean and very tidy and well kept. Ten minute walk from harbour and restaurants and lovely lakeside view. Would recommend it for all ages. If your expecting a five star motel with all the trimmings it's maybe not for you but if your looking for an affordable and comfortable place to stay in Taupo then I'd highly recommend....

Good, clean, basic unit. Comfortable new fold out sofa. Really liked that it was quiet after 10pm so a good nights sleep could be had. Good location to town. The wood panel down near the floor in the shower needs to be replaced or touched up as there is mould. Suggest when booking to try and get front accommodation so...

Excellent location opposite the lake but if you want a view make sure that you request it. Room was a good size and clean, however it was not serviced during our 2 night stay. Watch the stair cases. One in particular is a bit chipped and I grazed my foot twice. Good aircon and free wifi. The on site restaurant...

Me and my partner stayed here for the new year, and is in the best location. Right on the lake with a 5min walk to town. The rooms are nothing special, at first I thought 160 per night was pretty pricey considering you can get really nice rooms for the same price elsewhere, but we did enjoy our stay. Nice...

We stayed here for one night the week before Christmas and were really pleased with our stay. We had a one-bedroom apartment with lake views and it was ideal for three of us. Immaculately clean and well equipped, comfortable beds and great value for location. Would love to stay again and would definitely recommend.
