          This was an excellent get away. Room was fresh clean. Good not having other customers walking past room and seeing this. Views are the best. Owners were friendly and fresh. Would go stay at Clearwater again. The whole stay was fantastic

          Magnificent views. The only thing between this motel and Lake Taupo is a walking track. Modern, clean, quiet, large self-contained room, friendly, obliging staff. Great spot for some chill time especially in the large spa with a view.
