Taupo standard motel
Great location and easy access to Taupo. The rooms were fine, possibly a bit dated but definitely fine for purpose. There was enough space for family of four, although a bit tight in living area of one bedroom apartment.

Our family Stay was great. Apart from the wifi service, kept cutting out. So it was a lil hard to keep the kiddies entertained in wet weather conditions.

Great value hotel, excellent location
Perfect location across from the lake with the convenience of a great pub at the front for nice pub meals and drinks. Our check in was a nice experience, such a friendly welcome. Rooms are a good size and had a microwave and cutlery which would come in handy. We had a shower over a bath, the bath had jets so is perfect for relaxing. Overall a nice room and enjoyable stay. Great value
