We arrived super early to the Chalet, but having given the lady on the desk prior notice this was no problem at all and she let us straight in to our room. The room was lovely, we stayed in the one bed deluxe. Two bathrooms, two big beds, a kitchenette, and two televisions. Room was clean, and had everything we...

Just a wonderful place to stay, the views of the lake are stunning as is the property itself. Our room was spotlessly clean, spacious and tastefully decorated. The staff are very friendly and have good knowledge of the local area. The motel is centrally located so everything is right on your doorstep, including the lake.

I had a group of friends visiting from Melbourne . We were 5 girls in total and we booked one of the 2 bedroom family suite. The rooms were very clean and spacious. The kitchen facilities in the room was adequate. View from the bedroom was amazing . Spa and pool facility on premises was very well utilized by us...

Host was very welcoming. Nice view and handy to shops. Spa was an added bonus. Go for a lake view room. Totally recommend!! Will stay again. Only down side was thin walls but plenty of wine solves that. And steep stairs not ideal for elderly but I'm not there yet 😊

Great location, easy walking to restaurants, movies and shopping. Comfortable, spacious room with separate bedroom, lovely large bed, great shower, toiletries, basic selection of tea and coffee. Our room faced the side street so not much view of the lake unless you stood in the kitchen area but was upstairs and fairly private, shared balcony with the unit next door...

We enjoyed five nights at this very well maintained motel. Karen and Kenny are attentive hosts and go the extra mile to make sure your needs are met. The bed is very comfortable, the linen spotless, the kitchen area has everything you need. Our only problem this year was some boy racers in Taupo for the weekend, as properties in...

(+) Got a room with a great view of the lake. Our room also had menus for a few restaurants in town, which helped us to decide where to go in advance- this saved us a a fair bit of time. (-) Walls a little thin- not much traffic outside, but other guests can get a little noisy.

Straight forward check-in and we were walked to our room. We had a ground floor unit (no.14), facing the road but which gave us lake views. The road was quiet so no road noise. There is a small deck out front on which to sit and catch the afternoon sun. The unit was spacious and clean. There is a dining...

What a great place to stay, nice comfy and cozy rooms and the pools we're just perfect, would recommend this place to anyone. Really close to the lake and local restaurants. The room we stayed in was two story and had a spa bath.
