Beachfront, big spa! Great for couples.
The modern, 'house' looking frontage and small reception area doesn't really shout 'accommodation' from the road..but we liked that fact. The room we had was lovely and clean with a fantastic outlook over the lake. The bed was comfy and the room was extremely clean. The large spa bath was a bit dated looking but did the trick and the air conditioning was welcome (it was a necessity actually given the warmth created from being in a thermal area). We would definitely stay again and highly recommend it to those who don't want/need a hotel with more facilities like a restaurant, gym etc.

Very Good8.0
Excellent location
Property is right on the water and Lake Taupo is idyllic. Ask for a room on the first floor. The rooms on the ground floor are a bit hot because of geothermal activity
