Fabulous 8.8 From 27 reviews

Fair 4.0
Very disappointing
Didn’t end up staying. Room was a very average caravan type accommodation. There were 2 power points which were not connected to the wall and had wires hanging out. Drove into town and booked into a motel that cost less and was on the lake and within walking distance of the shops and restaurants. Returned our keys and explained about the exposed wires in the room and did not hear back from the property. The resort is not close to the lake or town and the pool area is not as attractive as it is depicted on social media. Would not recommend.

The best holiday resort we have experienced in NZ and Australia. We stayed in a two bedroom unit with all the trappings,but found the laundry and kitchen facilities for other patrons to be of good quality and very clean. The heated pool and bar area topped off our stay.

Great family break
Had a great weekend in a great location with our kiwi family. Really great facility with lots to do for the kids in a safe location. Only a few minutes from the lake and the many tourist attractions Taupo has to offer. On top of this possibly the comfiest hotel bed I have ever slept in!
