We had a night here on our way through to Auckland, the hotel is in a lovely peaceful setting. We had a junior suite which was very comfortable but as we have struck with the Hilton chain of late there is a lack of amenities. No extra pillows and only 2 towels so in the morning our towels were still...

HOTEL’S FAVOURITE REVIEW
Reviewed 30 December 2016

We stayed 8 nights over Christmas in a 3 bedroom apartment and loved it. Booked forever in advance (11 months!) so got a crazy good rate which may have helped our good feeling overall - if we'd paid full rack rate I mightve been abit pickier - afew scuffs on the walls, average water pressure etc... The 3 bedroom apartment...

Stayed here for one night with my husband on what was a very busy weekend in Taupo. Had a king room and u believe we were upgraded to a room with a view. I have to say I was underwhelmed and a tad disappointed with our room. The room was huge but seemed empty, a small couch or the like...

A very nice Hotel, friendly and helpful staff, lovely room, and a nice stroll along the lakeside into town. Found this Hotel brilliant for peace and quite and away from the boy racers that tend to plague parts of NZ. A good stay.

We returned to this hotel and had booked a one bedroom apartment. However, on arrival at 4.30 pm, the room was not ready and we were offered a three bedroom apartment instead. Excellent views, good bed and bathroom, ample space but very wobling kitchen furniture and drawers. What I liked less was that although the room was already debited on...

I had to create a trip advisor profile just to rate this Hotel. Oh My, What an outstanding experience we had. From the moment we checked in to the moment we left we felt like royalty. We stayed in a luxurious 1 bedroom apartment with stunning views of the lakes and mountains. It was bigger than our apartment in Auckland-...

I enjoyed my time here. Nice restaurant too. There is free parking around the side of the hotel which we took advantage of. I would make sure to specify you want a room with a view before you book. We were on the first floor and just got to look at some hedges.

Totally recommended for a visit to Taupo. Great location, wonderful rooms and excellent restaurant. Great staff - thank you. Swimming pool is a bit cold but the hot pool is nice and warm. However, consider Debretts hot pools next door.

We stayed in a three bedroom apartment which was fantastic. The living area was huge and the views from the balcony were beautiful. Breakfast was great and had loads of variety so I would highly recommend including this as there isn't too much within walking distance of the hotel. Overall, a brilliant base for Lake Taupo.
