wonderful taupo

Had a great stay in Taupo the room was clean and had everything needed. The biggest problem was not enough car spaces to park and very small we only had a small rental and still unable to get out of the car if you got the middle car park as spaces not allocated to your room.

Great location

This is a nice cozy hotel located just across the road from Lake Taupo. The room was very homely, spacious and clean. The room comes with a fully-equipped kitchen which was nice when we didn't feel like going out for a meal. The only downside was that the wifi signal didn't reach as far as our room and there was barely any phone reception either. This made it a bit difficult to plan our day activities while we were in the hotel room. We had a very pleasant stay at this hotel.

Amazing view of Lake Taupo and the superb sunsets.

Breakfast provided. Free wi-fi. Comfortable, well equipped room. Staff exceptionally helpful, friendly and thoughtful. We spent four most enjoyable days and nights there and would love to stay there again when visiting NZ.

Happy Aussies

To be able to wash and dry clothes at a motel or holiday park without having to put any money in a machine or dryer is a rare occurrence on a holiday . We could do this here. The Manager was just so wonderful and friendly and we wanted for nothing. Would stay here again and recommend it to anyone. Very well equipped kitchen area. Right on Lake Taupo. Fantastic views out the front.

just ok

The walls in this motel are thin. We were in a downstairs room and all we could hear was the people above walking around. We booked for 5 people but only 4 beds were made up (paid for 5 though). My son had t sleep on the couch using the bedspread from another bed and no sheets. The room was clean and tidy though and the host was nice.

The Jolly good fellows pub just up the road is a great spot for a beer/food in the afternoon sun taking in the views of Lake Taupo.
