great place to stay
greeted by a delightful reception lady and her big ginger cat very accommodating once she found out I was a lone booking and put me in a room to the far end on the second floor for peace and quiet. Room was clean and spacious with a comfortable queen bed in the lounge. Shower had great water pressure and roomy with shelving for products etc.

a pleasant stay
The Lake Taupo Motor Inn is perhaps not in the best spot, but still close to the center of Taupo and the lake. My unit was large and well appointed. The owner had switched the heat pump on prior to my arrival. I intend to use this motel again in the future!
