Great place to stay
Lovely place to stay not far from centre of Taupo. Very comfortable and plenty of space. A fan would have been an improvement as the room did become very hot at the time of year we visited. Lots of free parking in Taupo just be aware of the time restrictions. Down by the port there doesn’t appear to be any restriction.
