Stayed here with Contiki in January 2017. Nice little spot just out of the city of Taupo near the lake. Still a 5-10 minute cab ride into the city. Nice clean rooms with recently renovated bathrooms. Pool, spa and tennis court facilities are also available.

Stayed for only one night passing through. Great room, very clean and modern. Fantastic pricing for a queen room. Location was a bit out of city so would need a car but lake is just across road with great view from our room

The reception staff were so unfriendly and abrupt that they bordered on being hostile and confrontational. It was quite upsetting. This was the only time in 3 weeks in NZ when we encountered this. Without exception everywhere else had really lovely, warm and friendly staff. The place is very outdated, although it is clean. It's also a long way from...

The good - Not too far from town, tennis court, swimming pool and spa facilities. The Bad- we were on the bottom floor and could hear people peeing, thin walls. On the last day our rooms were only semi-serviced. Beds were not made. We checked out early because of this and they didn't really seem to care, they apologised however...

Accommodation was average but tidy. No complaints. Lots of parking. Although not right in town it is a short drive away. The restaurant was fairly average. My breakfast was edible not great. Scramble eggs was a bit overdone.Selection was basic. I would stay again but would likely eat away.

Had 2 nights here. Room small but tidy. A bit dated. Bathroom clean and tidy . Very basic unit with no cutlery apart from 2 teaspoons. All in all not a bad unit. For overseas visitors it is handy to the lake and about a 5 min drive or 15 min walk. Hairdryer available. No kitchen facilities in our room...

So great you enjoyed our facilities at the Hotel. As we are a Hotel, the rooms do not contain a kitchen facility, but we have an excellent Restaurant on site for great Buffet breakfasts and a wonderful A' La Carte Restaurant each night. Do come and stay again, to try our great Dining experience.

Many thanks for your review, and pointing out your experience with the Resort. All Hotels require guests to supply them with a valid credit card on booking to secure their reservation and over very busy periods (like Taupo's Cycle challenges), pre-payment is frequently taken to avoid cancellations in the Hotel. This policy has been implemented here at the Hotel by...

Place was good to stay at. Had all you need really with restaurant, few outdoor areas like tennis court for the active types. Rooms were quite dated but adequate for the price. Bed was hard for me but that's just my view. About a 5min drive to the main shops area.
