Check-in and check-out was a breeze. Owners were friendly and knowledgeable. We loved the large rooms, and we appreciated the cleanliness of the place. It was so comfortable to sleep there as well! Usually my wife and I struggle a bit when travelling, because we're particular about mattresses and so forth, but we loved our night at this inn.

Four guys on a trip to Taupo for the weekend. 2 bedrooms and a pull out sofa bed. Ideal place for us and we were very surprised how clean and tidy this place was for the great price we booked it for. Very friendly place with a warm welcome and helpful throughout our two night stay. Not far to the...

Booked two twin studios and were placed in the building next door to the main motel. Not sure if all the rooms are of a similar standard but these were very dated. No bath just showers one of which was accessible ( not requested ) both of which could do with a serious update, the shower itself was the worst...

Booked one night only to break up a long road trip to Wellington. Made a good base from which to explore Taupo. City centre within 10 mins walk, lake at end of street. Room was large with a comfy bed. We had a disabled room (neither of us are disabled!) so had no bath but a huge wet room shower...

Booked online at a great price and was extremely happy with my stay. Great welcome at reception despite being an hour early. My room was clean , warm and spacious. The location means the shops and restaurants are easily walkable so having a drink with a meal is an option.

We spent the night in this lodge as we went trekking in Taranaki falls near Whakapapa. The facility and amenities are all good but the wifi is slow but overall, it has a good ambience, safe, clean and feels like home. I hope that the staff will do something about the wifi. 😎

Enjoyed our stopover in Taupo here. Lovely unit which was clean and modern. Fully equipped kitchen, comfy bed, great bathroom with wonderful shower. Kiddies playground at the back, a spa pool to enjoy. Off street parking. Handy to town. The most important of all, was that the units are off the main road, so not noisy at night.

After reading the reviews on TripAdvisor thought this would suit or needs. We were very tired after a long driving day. Went to our room after check in. This was a disgrace for a motel in Taupo. The best thing was parking outside the room which is available at most motels. Where to begin.....The wardrobe was the height of a...

Our travel agent booked this for us and I was skeptical (was hoping to have a nice view of the lake from our room) but as far as cleanliness and comfort went, I was pleasantly surprised. Our 2 bedroom unit was clean and spacious with everything required to make our stay comfortable. The bathroom looked recently renovated and was spotless...
