4/10 Fair

Brief visit to Taupo
The apartment was looking very tired. Paint was flaking, shower leaked onto the floor and sofa needed replacing (material was torn on the arms and it did not provide good support). Overdue for a complete refurbishment. Room was only serviced once during our stay (3days).

It is an older motor inn, but money has been spent updating the interior of the rooms. The bathrooms are fresh, and our room was spotless. The hosts were very polite and obliging. It is a pleasant easy walk to the downtown area (which saves the hassle of parking downtown). The price was reasonable overall

We were charged a credit card fee of $9.44 even though our payment was made online with This has never happened before unless we paid with our credit card. Any reason why? The room was nice but we were a bit concerned about the bathroom as there was a lot of water on the floor but we couldn't see the source. We don't think it was the spa bath however the towels we put onto the floor were absolutely soaked.
