Lovely old skool motel with all the mod cons
Just needed one night in Taupo on the eve of the Lake Taupo cycle challenge weekend. Was pleasantly surprised by this Motel. From the outside it looks like an old skool 70s motel, but once you're inside your room, you see that everything has been refurbished with SKY and WiFi, but it still retains its charm. Bed was super comfy with good pillows and black out curtains. It's close to town but is nice and quite. Will definitely stay here again in the future

Great Family stay
Fantastic view, very clean and great service. Extra towels to use at local hot pools. Spa to book, free of use. Electric blankets on all beds so really cozy. Could have more lights in bathroom. We would definitely come back.
