Although it was a little far from Taupo restaurants and shops we thoroughly enjoyed our stay, kids had heaps of fun, the spa pool and heated pools was that extra bonus especially in winter. Will definitely return

Booked a one bedroom but got two. Apart from a couple of trips from the car park carrying our cases etc up outside stairs to the end of the corridor everything was fine. Would stay again but request a more convenient room. Receptionist was awesome such a welcoming can do attitude.
