Don't book unless last choice.
Trailer park trash. Room was in great need of upgrade. Torn wallpaper and fixtures very old. Walls are paper thin and can hear everything in the adjoining rooms. WiFi is terrible. Noise from street if you are in front bungalo. It is not a 3 star motel.

Good 6.0
The place is clearly being renovated. Our room was lovely, modern and clean but the outside is a little rough. The room we stayed in seemed to be below the home of the owners and we did hear a lot of noise from upstairs. Perfect for a short visit and I’m sure with continuing improvements it will be a great place to stay.

We had an amazing stay, the staff were very accommodating for late check-ins, he showed us into our room. The room was very comfy, stocked with full kitchenware, and roomy toilets. Location is perfect, walkable distance from all major taupo attractions and isite. Would highly recommend out for long or short stays.
