Exceptional 10.0
Nice accommodations close to everything
I was very happy with my stay at Twin Peaks for Ironman New Zealand. The hotel is a 1/2 mile from the race activities, which is close enough to walk to but far enough to be away from the hype. It is also on the run course, so it's easy for your support to support you, and it's easy to support others when you are done. The hotel itself has very helpful staff; very nice people. There's two hot tubs that you can reserve for private use, and there's a laundry room as well for washing. The room itself is good; the sliding glass door as an entry is strange but adequate. You can get good sunlight if you like. The amenities were nice - fridge, an electrical outlet for hair dryers so you don't fry your items. I didn't use the TV. House cleaning were great and timely each day. The restaurant next door is a good place to hang out if you like English food and drink. I think is hotel is a great value for the money. Right outside your door is the beach.

Not impressed
We e mailed the motel prior saying that we would like a room with a bath as my wife has her foot in plaster and can’t use a shower. Got tothe room no bath so ask at reception was told “o yes I see on the booking that you requested a bath, sorry”. The room was very basic, we paid over 144 dollars to stay the night very expensive for a basic room on the ground floor with no view of the lake,the only thing we could see from our room was the cars in the park. Not impressed and I see that the motel is up for sale!

Very good location. Lovely views. We bought some food to save a little money but the fridge froze it all, just some yoghurts and ham, when we advised the staff they didnt apologise or offer us any compensation for the runined food, just advised they would look at it. Cleaners are very loud on the stairs each morning, very heavy feet and pound up it. I say cleaners but they only give u fresh towels and empty bins. We also had a big problem with ants. They were all over our bathroom and shower. When checking out i advised of this and again no apology just someone would look at it. They didnt even ask if we enjoyed our stay. Taupo itself is lovely but i wouldnt stay here again.

Taupo getaway
We.had a lovely 3 night stay in Taupo, weather not great for couple days but didnt matter. Staying at Twin Peaks is perfect (have stayed at least 4 times now) as is easy quick walk into main cbd, mini golf a couple min walk away. We always have an evening meal at the Taupo Cosmopolitan Club which always has lovely meals at very reasonable prices. The bed in our unit was Super comfy both of us had great sleeps. Shower has great pressure and unit has heat pump and extra heaters in the bedroom also. Clean linen changed daily. Good range of teas and husband enjoyed the plunger coffee. More than happy to return to Twin Peaks in future

The room we booked was not the room we got.We had booked a room with a spa bath.The one we got did not have one.The lady at reception said we could move to one with a spa but only for one night and we were staying two.We would also have to move out till 2pm to get into another room .She did kindly let us use the spa in a spare room .Our room was clean and very warm but the bathroom was very shabby.The man at reception said every room has a different owner,that is why every room is in a different condition.
