Staff were very friendly and helpful. room was nice and clean ..nice little kitchen area.and the bed was comfy . Great wifi ...nice big TV in the room
The hotel was easy to find and is well placed for the lake front and town

It was quite cold when we arrived but the room was lovely and warm

Handy for Lake and Town


Great accommodation option for Taupo. A short walk from the lake and a good restaurant (Jolly Good Fellows). All the facilities in the room to make our 2 night stay comfortable. Would stay here again without a doubt.

Very Nice Rooms & Location


Stay in spa suite room for two nights.

Although the furnitures can not be considered luxury, they are all adequte. The room is spacious and clean, and it accommodates for three. It has everything we need (especially if you stay more than a night). There is a kitchen with microwave, basic cooking utensils (although we did not use it), tableware, 2 sofas, and ample of space.

Bathroom is surprisingly modern and clean, it has the spa tub.

We are also veey happy that there is parking right in front of each room, make it easier to load and unload the luggage (no stairs, which is a plus if you have large heavy lugagge to carry).

Would love to come back :)

Comfortable Visit

We booked a room in this motel and thought it would be okay for one night.
It turned out to be great value for the $$$s we paid.
The staff were friendly and helpful, the room was clean and well equipped and all the facilities were great. Only a short walk to the lakefront and to town.
We were more than happy and would recommend to others.

Great value for money in Taupo

We only stopped here one night but wish we had spent more time. Incredible spa bath, which was so lovely on a cold September night.
Comfortable beds and fast wi-fi. Lovely short walk to Lake Taupo and to local restaurants. Though, with a kitchen, we didn't have to eat out which was a nice change on our trip. It was great to be able to cook our own food and to have a car park right outside our door.
Helpful, kind staff. Would absolutely recommend and stay again


Each time we travel to Taupo to race we attempt to stay her, the management is great, the location is handy to the lake and to walk to town and the units are comfortable. they always sort my trailer parking as a welcome addition and great us like they remember us

This is always a great place to stay


Perfect big whirl pool bath, kitchen was very Handy, loved having the 2 sky tvs, the main bed was comfy, very welcoming workers. I loved that I paid a good cheap price & got even better then I was expecting. It was the perfect size for myself, partner & our 2 year old daughter. She loved it to.

Perfect Big whirl pool bath

Excellent accommodation, way to cheap for quality provided.
Room was preheated for us before we arrived, biscuits and plenty of teas.
The spa certainly a great way to relax after a days driving.
A pleasant surprise to find a motel that is up to standard, I should know as my job is to design them.

Excellent Accommodation
