Fair stay
Very good location. Good to see they had Sky TV. Clean place. Had parking too. Old building, dated interior, bathroom had newer fittings. There is no heatpump which is a must in winter. We came a bit late by 7pm and left by 10.30am, there was no staff at all. We didn't meet anyone as office was unattended. We still enjoyed our stay.

Hotel with nice view on lake taupo. The staff was very friendly and the room was good. The only negative aspect was that WiFi did not always work reliable.

Really friendly helpful staff. Very comfortable accommodation. Great location right on the lake. We did have a perfectly nice view of the lake from 2 windows even though we had ‘non lake view’ rooms. Will definitely book to stay again!

4/10 Fair

The foyer smelt damp and mouldy. The complex appears dated and porky maintained. It is an iconic Taupō accommodation facility and sadly has fallen behind the accepted standards
