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.

1 night stay
We stayed overnight on our way north. The studio we had was larger than we typically experience and it had a sllder to close off the king size bed. The decor was pleasant and the view to the lake from the balcony was a nice bonus. It is an easy walk into the shopping area. For dinner we walked to the near-by Fox & Hounds (very good meal) and the next morning we walked (a bit further) to Zest Cafe for breakfast. There was a light that wasn't working and the basin in the bathroom was very slow to drain. To the manager's credit he asked if we had noted faults when we checked out. We will stay here again in the future - it is good value for money.

Great location in Taupo
Sadly this was only a one night stay to attend the Jock Hobbs U19 tournament in Taupo. We had other friends staying here so that was the reason for our booking. The location is great and our son and friends could walk around the road to mini golf or to McDonalds so they didn't need to be driven anywhere. The pool area looked nice but you would have to wait until summer. The beds were fantastic but the walls are thin and floor boards upstairs creaky so it was a bit noisy. Would stay again.

Fair 4.0
Good location, felt creepy and was run down.
Our experience did not match the reviews we read about. The hotel is pretty run down, although certain things (like vanities) are new, but other things are falling apart. There were two large burn marks from an iron on the floor, chipped mirrors, rusty wood around the tub, a hole in the closet door and a loud fridge that hums constantly. The worse part is the shoddy craftsmanship which means the stairs are narrow and hard to navigate, the second floor is loud when you walk and you can hear EVERYTHING from the room next door when you are upstairs (snoring, ALL night) or from the patio when you are downstairs. The location was great but overall the hotel felt creepy and I didn't feel comfortable leaving my things inside when we left due to the multiple doors that had just a button lock and would be easy to break into.
