When travelling with a dog you won't find anything better than this. A council reserve out the back for your pet to run free and the lake out the front with tiled walkways to enjoy the lake side. Our unit able to sleep four comfortably. Bathroom very compact with a small shower and cramped toilet access, which maybe tricky for...

Guests with dogs do love the location. We are very fortunate to have the reserve behind the complex and the path along the lake is extremely popular with everyone. Make sure you request a pet room when you book to avoid disappointment as not all of our rooms are pet friendly.

Lovely owners/hosts and super clean and tidy rooms. If you're planning on staying in taupo this is the place to stay. Perfect for us and our pup to relax and plenty of space for our dog to run around with the big reserve right outside the doorstep.

We have limited pet rooms so make sure you book early to avoid disappointment when travelling with pets. Our bonus is the great reserve behind for exercising the pets (and children) in a safe environment.

Checking in is more akin to visiting friends. Dennis makes you most welcome and has lots of info on Taupo's restaurants and attractions. We stayed in the Guest Room, which is quite small but perfectly ok for a 1-2 night stay. It's perfect if you have a dog as this room opens almost directly onto a dog friendly reserve behind...

Awesome relaxing long weekend stay with our two Labradors. The lodge has two pet friendly units , lovely friendly owners who let us know all the pet friendly eateries in town. Great reserve adjoined to the lodge that is off lead. Lodge rooms were incredibly clean & well maintained. Trampoline , BBQ and SPA. Right across the road from the...

Stayed here for 2 nights. Denis is so warm and helpful and made our stay very pleasant. The motel overlooks the lake and the short walking distance to the lake is great for those who love to run/walk/cycle along the pathway around the lake. There are 4 bikes available at the motel too which is super convinient.

AccentTaupo, Owner at Accent on Taupo Motor Lodge, responded to this review

The pathway along the lake edge is a very popular trail especially in the morning and evenings as locals and visitors use it for exercise and recreation. Our bikes are perfect for crusing along and we often have to remind guests to bring them back before dark as they have no lights! You don't want to go too far at...

We have the 1 bedroom unit and it was lovely since the window faces the lake. You get to wake up to the lovely view. Place is nice comfotable and clean. Not a fan of the shower tap though. And the bathroom sink tap has separate hot and cold water taps which is not cool as you can't adjust the...

The view from our front unit is pretty special and we have set the living area up so guests can sit at the table and look out at it. Thanks for the comments on the shower and basin taps. We appreciate feedback that helps us prioritise upgrades and have taken your comments on board. Regards Fran

Initially booked the Lakeside 2 bedroom unit which sleeps 6 adults but given the size of this unit, extra guest could be accommodated with roller beds in the living room. There were last minute changes in my plans which mean I had an extra guest who was a teenager and could have been very very easily accommodated in the living...

There is always a maximum number of adults set for Motel/Hotel rooms and guests are aware of it when they make an online booking. Guests above that maximum need to be accommodated in additional rooms. We did this at a special rate for this party.

We stayed in the cottage for one night. The gentleman on reception, who I assume to be the owner, was kind enough to show us the room and its amenities.Being our first visit to Taupo, we did not know much about things to do in two days and this guy helped us to decide based on his own experiences, which...

You are correct - he is one of the owners. And helping guests maximise their time in Taupo is one of the things he does very well. Sometimes I (as the other owner) think he goes overboard but you just can't be too enthusiastic about this town and it's surrounds. And it is great to see the laundry being used!...

Stayed in room D which was well set up for young kids as the back bedroom was the twin beds allowing us to put the children to bed and still watch the tv in comfort. Owners very helpful and knowledgable about local attractions. Great stay, highly recommended!

We try to put families with younger children in our units where the bedroom is set up with single beds. This gives the adults in the family the living/bedroom for later evening time. At check in we moved this family from a different unit so that they could put the children to bed at their normal time and still have...
