We were welcomed happily and quickly shown to our room. It was clean and comfortable but it took over 15 minutes before the heat pump kicked in and began to warm the room. The bed sagged a little so had to prop it up with a towel.

The reviews we read made us choose beech tree. In taupo there are so many morels/hotels to select from so you can and should be discerning. I would agree with other reviews it is nicely appointed. Plenty of towels,coffee tea provisions and cleanly presented. A few comments to the negative. It is very noisy downstairs,the echo of cars etc into... More

It was an amazing stay. A warm Welcome. Rooms were absolutely clean and were warm throughout the night. Worth what you spent. Have traveled many places and this one was the finest what I experienced. Came back today and already made my next plan for Taupo. Across the road was supermarket/ATM (which sells wines). Everything was handy and of walking... More

We were welcomed warmly and found the room to be lovely and the bathroom ok. The bed was one of those beds that you can feel every move the other person makes so we had an uncomfortable night's sleep. However that was the only negative experience about our one night stay and it certainly didn't spoil our time there. What... More

Excellent place to stay, comfortable and the host was pleasant to deal with..even when woken up at 12am! Cleaning staff were also lovely. Would happily recommend Beechtree Suites and will be using them again in future. Was a pleasant place to stay that allowed me to focus on the task at hand, the reason for my stay. + Free Wifi...

I stayed at the Beechtree for a fortnight with collegues whilst in Taupo for work, and found it a fantastic place to stay. Jacqui (the Manager) ran around after us and made it easy to focus solely on work. Washing was done, the rooms were always immaculate and there was a plentiful supply of coffee. The rooms were sizeable so... More

We came to Taupo for the Erupt Arts Festival and stayed in the family suite in the family room which can easily fit a family of four (even five with some inventive use of the sofa as in our case). The rooms were separated by the kitchen/dining/living area and all areas were very clean and spacious. Being Taupo it can... More

We had a great stay at the Beechtree Suites. All the staff were very friendly and Jacqui and Baz the managers were very helpful in recommending places for us to visit.

This place was ok for a quick overnighter or business trip but fell short of being good tourist accommodation. A handful of simple and basic faults tarnished our visit. Some door knob falling off, light bulbs were blown, the TV was overly complex and not connecting easily to the satellite facility, condiments were not updated properly. Bottom line, just another...
