A great place to stay with beautiful views over Lake Taupo from our room. The room was clean and beds were very comfortable. Hosts were very helpful with great suggestions on what to see around the lake and surrounds.

Room was nice and clean and the managers were absolutely lovely and made us feel welcome. The only negative was that you could hear the people in the next room if they were speaking loudly. Bathroom nice and clean, with cooking facilities if needed.

Love the room. Modern & new. The bed also super comfort. The kitchen is complete. The view from the room is awesome. If we come again to Taupo we will make sure we have this motel again. The management staffs also very friendly.

Great place to stay, very friendly people with lots of reccomendations for best places to visit and eat out. close enough to town to walk if you want, and right across from Lake Taupo. Very impressed with the cleanliness of the rooms and They had everything you need. Would happily stay there again without hesitation.

Very comfortable room with all necessary amenities. Very comfortable bed .....and have never seen so many free tea bags/coffee packets anywhere! Ideal location just off the town centre with lovely lake views. Excellent hosts and we will very likely be back again.
