A welcome bed for the night
We were at the Taupo Concert and it was great to have this Motel to stay in after the concert finished. We had only booked this at the last minute and didn't really know what to expect but we were pleasantly surprised at would go back in a heart beat to stay again. The receptionist was super friendly and helpful. We were going to go out for diner but realised there was a restaurant onsite and went there instead and we had a wonderful meal at a reasonable price. Breakfast was a buffet style meal and that was great as well. The room was very comfortable with everything you needed and it was well laid out. My only grizzle is that there wasn't air con in the room as it was a HOT night but they did have a fan and we put it to good use . The decor was very pleasant and the room was super tidy and neat. Like I have stated we will go back there again as we are regular visitors to the Taupo area and this Motel had everything we look for when we stay there. The room was reasonable value for money when you consider this was possibly the last available room in Taupo that weekend but still good value against other Motels in Taupo.

Two ladies with 3 small dogs booked in just after us in a downstairs room (we were above them) and their dogs were let out of the vehicle on grass beside tree. They were yappy. We have yappy dogs at home in villa beside us so know that even tho these ladies said they don't bark we know that not to be so. Why book into a motel why not a camp ground or the dogs in kennels and ladies in motel and we said that to these ladies. Oh no they are show dogs. I complained to management and they assured us it is not a pet friendly motel so saw the ladies and arranged for them to go to another which was pet friendly and gave their deposit back. Bravo to management - they did well. We love dogs but in the right place not at a motel. We give management 10 for the way they handled this situation. Thank you Coralie

Different staff, different attitude
C/I on 11/2/2017 by a American accent lady. Found internet connection is not working at two power points. Went back to reception, she said everyone else has no issue, only me. It worked as soon as I got out of the room. I realised it's reception weak in that room. She reset modem, asked me to go back try again. It's still the same. I went back to front office, she insisted three times that no one else has problems with internet. Maybe it's my phone network provider Vodafones problem. She said she can't do anything about it. Later I went to shower, there is no cold water. Richie came to the room quickly, and called for help, but no one can fix it quickly. So he changed our room and gave us free breakfast. The internet connection is excellent in this room as well. Thanks for reading. Breakfast is nice. Cheers

Wet bed
Came in to the alloacted room and saw that the bed was wet. There was a leak through the ceiling and water was dripping through a recessed light socket. It hadbeen raining. The hotel was fully booked and the hotel staff was unable to allocate another room for us. The hotel staff came up to the room and completed changed the bed. Fortunately, the dampness had not got throughto the mattress. We moved the bed so that if more rain came over night, we wouldnot be right underneath the offending light socket. Would I go back to this hotel again? The answer is "No". You could say that it was just one of those unfortunate circumstances andthe hotel did the best they could, but we were offered nothing in the way of compensation for the inconvience we were caused.

Nice resort on main drag into Taupo
Staff were very friendly at check-in. The room contained three single beds (but booking said twin?) and a nice big bathroom. Also helped to have a large TV on the wall with SKY, as the day we arrived was a shocker weather wise and we couldn't do anything outside. Unfortunately we didn't get to sleep until about 2.30am on the first night as the guests above us and next to us were very noisy (part of a wedding party?). The next day was nice and we enjoyed being out and about in Taupo and also used the resort facilities such as the pool. Whilst the resort is on the edge of the main drag into town, it was no problem as we had a car We saw that some of the same guests who caused us grief the first night were staying the next night, so we decided to check out early and return home. So the resort got a night out of us that we didn't stay there!
