We arrived to a warm welcome. This place is really handy to the shopping centre and just down the road is just a short stroll to some very good restaurants and bars. Right across the road from the stunning lake. Really quiet at night. Will definatley come back.

This place is ideal for all and sundry to stay, location as it has been widely recommended is its appeal. It suited my family's budget and as we only stayed 1night and wanted to get a snapshot of Taupo surrounds, the town and much talked about eateries. The Absolute offers convenience plus to all aforementioned, though we had a room...

We my wife and I stayed in room number 1 which is a studio setup. The room was overall clean and maintained well. The only issue for me was that I believe the owner(s) and their kids were residing right above our room and our room wasn't sounds proof. So the noise was continuous as well as early morning before...

The owner was also very helpful as we had a trailer on and showed where...

We were stopping in Taupo for 2 nights on route to Auckland, and liked the look of the complex so called in to check availability of a room. We had a lovely room with view of the lake right across the road. Exceptionally helpful and friendly staff.

This is a must for families and businessman alike. I have stayed here a number of times for business and pleasure. There is a wide range of rooms, and the amenities rival that of some of the larger hotels. There is a welcomed sauna and spa after long day to enjoy, or an indoor swimming pool to relax. I strongly...

Spent 1 night here with our daughter who is working in NZ, pleasant staff, very clean rooms (22) perfect for what we wanted it for, good shower, ticked all the boxes, 30yds from the Lake side, no grumbles, the local area has lots to do, eat and drink. Recommended and will stay again when/if we go back.
