Amazing hosts, wonderful place!
The perfect hotel on Lake Taupo. The cottage was both spacious and spotless (great for families traveling with kids); private but not isolated; and the location in town and by the lake excellent. It felt like a true bach – with all the comforts and amenities of a modern hotel. Jill and Julian are the most wonderful hosts – and the nicest people you will meet. Simply the loveliest place. Highly, highly recommended!

Comfortable hotel
We spent a night in Taupo at Accent on Taupo. When we arrived the couple who run the hotel were very friendly and helpful. The room was clean and comfortable and well stocked and there was a spa pool (which we didn't use as the weather was too hot) as well as bicycles available for guest's use which is a nice touch. The bed was comfortable and the room nice and quiet. Although it is at the far end of Taupo, it's still only a 5 minute drive to the centre of town, and there are some restaurants in the area.,

A good place to stay in Taupo
Our room is clean and tidy. The hosts are very accommodating and helpful. We will surely come back to this place again in the future when we visit Taupo. It is also not hard to recommend because of the very good service we received.

Great stay in Taupo!
The Lakeside cottage at Accent on Taupo is such a great space for larger families wishing to unwind together - as a family. I’m so glad we stayed here - there were views of the Lake without any of the joggers / cyclists traipsing past our windows as some places sited beside the lake experienced. The use of the bikes was very welcome - it’s definitely worth cycling around (at least a part of) the lake. Having our own kitchen and laundry facilities made for a very easy stay. Thanks to our wonderful host nothing was too much trouble! Definitely a place we’d choose to stay again when in Taupo.

Good value for area
This is an older motel but has been updated inside and is clean and comfortable. It is about 15 minutes from city center and easy access to the highway. There is a nice walk around the lake which is across the street. I had unresolved issues with the internet (Apple) but the owner called the next B&B for me which was a very nice thing to do.
