    Great place to stay. Lovely & modern. We booked a small room for $130 it had everything we needed including a balcony & a view of the lake. Ultra comfy bed, Sky TV, clean room & welcoming staff. Not far from town would definitely recommend.

    Great place, great price. The staff were really helpful when we realized that we wouldn't arrive in time for check in and made it really easy for us to sign ourselves in and find out room. Comfortable and warm. Great shower

    Quick overnight stay in Taupo at The Cove. Nice big room, modern and comfortable. Big draw card was the hot tub on the balcony. Red wine and cheese followed in the sun on the balcony by a hot tub before dinner!!! Great stuff!!!

    We are more than happy to arrange a Taxi to Taupo Airport. A five minute drive away & should be about $25.

    The spa in the penthouse was in a large conservatory that opened, the pool did have a cover on but was easy to open.
