    Great Location

    Wonderful and central to everything in Taupo and friendly staff. A bit tired and the grounds could definitely do with a good tidy. The single beds in our unit were extremely uncomfortable, the mattress was like a trampoline 🙃. Definitely an ideal place for families i would say.

    nice place to stay

    A lovely place to stay, my only three complaints are that we had booked a room for three and my son who is 16 just had a mattress on the floor to sleep on, a trundler bed would have been fine, especially as the other people we stayed with paid the same as we did and they go three actual beds. Also there was no shade by the pool, maybe sun umbrellas would be an idea and also don't think there was a BBQ so we couldn't all cook and eat together (three families)

    Average Motel, handy with Lake views but Ants.

    Had 2 bedroom motel unit, stairs very step with short treads to the upstairs bedroom. Good ammenities once I sorted out noisy fridge (out of balance). Good view of Lake Taupo, except there were smokers just along from us on balcony. My downstairs bed was very spongy with very little support for my back. Very handy location to Taupo restaurants, supermarket & shops. Shower basjc but OK. Ants crawling on floor by edge of kitchen bench & on floor of bathroom. Maybe a 3.5 due to poor quality bed but only a 3 due to the ants, which shows in cleaning problems and poor upkeep. However not many motels in area with 2 bedroom options.

    Great spot

    Fantastic location and the room was very comfy and clean. Husband left his wedding ring behind and less then 20minutes after we left they rang and told us before we even realized. Super honest.

    Second visit not as good as the first

    I booked this place because of a good first visit, but this time it was disappointing. It took a while for the owners to come out to the front desk. It's not very welcoming at the front desk. The room was so so and the blinds were falling apart, things need updating. The swimming pool was in a very bad state of repair. On the whole just a non-memorable place to stay. It sure what happened between the last time time and now - new owners?

    Taupo Break

    Nice and handy to the Taupo Shopping centre. Walking distance to restaurants and Fast food outlets. Very close to the Taupo Mini Golf. We have used this facility several times over the last 6 years. We always feel welcome here.
