Exceptional 10.0
Restful Lake View
Handy location for our needs. Happy to have a view of the Lake yet with the property being set well back from the road we weren't bothered by traffic noise like a lot of other Lakefront properties are. Older property and a little tired decor wise but perfectly clean and had everything we needed. A bonus was the mineral bath. Friendly lady welcomed us and came down to explain how the bath works. Plenty of outdoor furniture to sit outside the unit and enjoy the Lake View. Outdoor heated pool available and I noticed a function room like a camp kitchen with its own outdoor seating area which would be great for family bookings. Very happy with our stay and would come again.

Mixed bag
The room was more basic than I expected. No air-conditioning and so hot and stuffy, despite fan. The pool was a plus. Staff were friendly and helpful. My main grumble is that I discovered the actual cost of the room was $21 less than I paid through Hotels.com! Lesson learned for next time ...

I would return
Great location. Loved the view. The unit was warm and comfortable. The heated swimming pool was ideal to keep my grandchildren occupied for a while. The cooked breakfast was very nice. I would return and recommend. A few things missing that I'm used to in motels - box of tissues, shower cap and toiletries consisted of soap pumps at handbasin and in the shower.
Joy, nz1 night trip
Good 6.0
First time I have had problems
No soap in the shower. Booked a 1 bedroom suite plus, but was given the equivalent of a studio room, a room with queen bed in the lounge with a separate room with two single beds and I was told not to touch the beds because I had not paid for them....... that’s a Studio room.

Very good 8.0
The place was clean and lovely decor, but didn't like the bed, too soft, rooms too hot, needs air conditioner. The thermal private spa in our room, needs a good over all touch up. For the price they are charging - this definitely needs doing. The thermal swimming pool was excellent - our kids thoroughly enjoyed it! Our fly spray was empty and that night there were lots of fruit flies and flies.

Our Home for a week.
We had a great stay. The people were nice and Friendly. We stayed 8 nights it was very Quiet with easy access to the rooms which were kept very clean by the house keeping team. The Laundry was cleam and tidy with near new machines that do it all with a push of a few buttons, even dry. We didnt use the Pool or the suna as we didnt have time to but they looked good. Thank you for the great stay.

Very good 8.0
Check-in was very efficient and pleasant. Receptionist came to our room and showed us how to use the facilities and where everything was. Great setting looking out over Lake Taupo. Room was a bit tired but overall left a good impression. Soundproof windows came in handy at night as the motel is on SH1 with a lot of traffic, but being set back a distance from the road also helps with noise reduction. Shower was good. A door between kitchenette and main part of room was a great idea.Good wi-fi. We appreciated the bottle of water given to us on checking out. Would definitely stay here again.
