    We stayed there two nights. The staff is very good and friendly. What I need mentioned is there are private thermal spa in several rooms and lake view at outside deck. That is wonderful! And the location is great as well.Only the bed cover in main bedroom got a little bit humid. Anyway all the other are very good, if possible I still come back,

    Relax by the lake
    Nice relaxing stay in a very convenient location to Taupo's activities. Private thermal hot pool was excellent - perfect to relax after a long drive. Easy walk into town for dinner (15-20 min walk).

    Great host. Nice location, just a few minutes walk on the lakefront from the centre of Taupo, and very convenient for the beach. Thermal swimming pool and tubs a real bonus.
