Okay but needs some work doing
The staff were really nice. The room was really clean. One ceiling light and a power point didn't work and an electrician wasnt available until after the long weekend. The ceiling was dark wood, the carpet dark grey and the cupboards etc very dark wood so the entire room lacked light. Would suggest painting the ceilings white. No facility for preparing even cereal or toast for breakfast. Only coffee or tea. Area for tea making was a cubbyhole with no light in it, really dangerous we found as our bodies blocked any natural light. Size of room was small, beds took up most of space and not sure how we would have managed with 3 of us. Intended eating in the on site restaurant Sunday night but it was closed. No shortage of eateries on Taupo. Overnight stays would be ideal and I presume the more expensive rooms would be better for longer stays. Room staff were delightful Good parking outside room and plenty of it.

Refresh needed
Great location but facilities getting tired, some features not working properly e.g. Spa pool. Needs an upgrade to compete with the many other options in Taupo

Really comfortable stay. Thanks
I pass through Taupo a few times a year and have tried different motels in this price range. Lakeland Resort is the best one and I'll stay here every time from now on. Clean and comfortable, fridge, modern bathroom, hairdryer, 10/10 WIFI, and friendly reception.

Comfy beds
Comfortable beds clean room nice towels Gloomy room but as we were not staying more than 3 days it was not an issue. The common areas in the dining room were needing TLC Staff exceedingly helpful and friendly. Dinner was good quality and cooked perfectly and so was the service. Breakfast for the price could have gone better with some fresh fruit or more choices for continental I would say again
