We were pleased to get an upgrade here to a suite. This is a motel style property. Basic. Basic Basic. Rooms are very clean. The location is very good. The towels are not luxurious and the WiFi is painfully slow.

I stat here whenever in Taupo because it is always clean, tidy and convenient. The operators are personable and welcoming, the breakfast of excellent quality and timely, and the sub-let Thai restaurant is of superior quality. It is a short walk, (7 minutes) to downtown Taupo, where there are plenty of good bars and restaurants. Common fast food restaurants are... More

Very friendly reception. The second time Sue has stayed and my first. Very accommodating. The room was spacious and cosy, under floor heating, had a fresh morning but the room was nice and warm. Very clean and tidy. Good parking. Close to town and the lake. We have already booked our next stay in Taupo at the Prince Motor lodge.... More

We arrived late afternoon in Taupo and chose the motel from our AA Accommodation booklet-a good choice. We were lucky to get the last available room(studio) which was very reasonably priced too. Our host was a very friendly and relaxed lady who had us very quickly settled into our room with a minimum of fuss-what you need after a long... More

I stay at the Prince Motor Lodge from time to time while travelling through the North Island. Taupo is a good transit point, being centrally located.

In close proximity, short walking distance, to... More
