Quick night en passant in Taupo
The property is in competition with many others close by and has done the most to compete. The area of each unit is more efficiently used than most others I have stayed in. Consequently, some may feel confined - I was impressed. The unit was not air conditioned; the kitchen facilities were limited but adequate, but otherwise it was just what was offered and what I needed. What more can one ask for?
Richard, ca1 night trip
Very good 8.0
Very welcoming couple at check-in. Nice room with lots of space and an extra bed. Bed was very comfortable, nice pillows and linens. Room was bright with extra skylight windows. Had a fridge, dishware, glasses and kettle. Bathroom was adequate, shower was nice, water was hot. Nice area outside the room to sit at a picnic table in the shade and a BBQ was available to use. We walked to town and the lakefront and the Lake Trail. Just around the corner was a Four Square market and a number of takeaways were just a short drive away. Would highly recommend the property for your stay in Taupo.

LOVED the place and people.
This family run motel was clean and great quality! The front wall is basically a patio door so you.m can get tons of natural light through the window. The owners were so sweet and picked me up from the bus stop when I arrived. The location was great because it was quiet and just a short walk to the beach, beach activities, town with restaurants/bars, gas stations, close to hikes, and the marina for boat rides. Only downfall was it got a bit warm. Because there wasn’t much of a breeze and there was no fan or A/C.

Great value!
Comfortable room in a quiet family run motel, and overall much nicer than we anticipated given how inexpensive it was for a holiday weekend. Room came with microwave, electric kettle, toaster and full set of dinnerware. Bed was very comfy with electric blankets and plenty of extra bedding. Check in and check out process were very smooth. Would definitely stay here again next time we're in Taupo.
