We enjoyed the stay very much . The rooms were clean and spacious. The owner was very hospitable and the location was good for us. The only area of improvement was the garden which was a bit overgrown .

Amazingly spacious well equipped room, 2 electric rings, microwave, toaster and kettle, so very easy to cook for yourself but there are lots of restaurants in the town. You can book a room with your own private hot tub which you fill yourself as required - takes about 15 minutes, great for relaxing after a day of exploring. There's lots...

This is a great place to stay. The rooms are large, well appointed, very clean, and have a kitchenette. We had an upstairs room that had a great view across the lake. The pool was warm enough for an evening dip. The staff was very friendly and helpful.

Perfectly placed for a visit to Taupo. This place had everything we needed for an overnight stay with a young family. The private hot tub with a little garden made it feel very luxurious. Easy access to the lake for a walk with the children

On top of all that the Hosts are so friendly and welcoming and really do look after us so well. It's our hotel of choice when...

Was sad to leave. Had a downstairs unit with outdoor tub which was fantastic! Can't fault anything about the place. Bed was comfortable and it was quiet at night. Don't forget about the heated pool which is kind of hidden from sight if you don't have a tub outside (or even if you do!). It was small but it was...

Bathroom was nice, towels were comfortably soft....
