Felt unwelcome upon check in. The woman who checked us in had an attitude towards us and was not friendly. Felt we were treated unfairly because we are a young couple. Was meant to stay 2 nights As for the room, we booked a spa bath unit and walked into the bathroom to find ants on the bathroom tiles as... More

Great comfortable accomodation, great price but my room did back onto street that you could clearly hear people talking when they walked past and I was there on a Friday night so quiet busy. Big bathroom and big rooms.

Rooms clean, comfortable and motel located near everything. We were sitting outside one night and they came over after closing reception to see how things were. You don't find... More

We stayed a night here and the motel is clean and conveniently located to the town center where all the restaurants are located, as well as Lake Taupo and the boat tours. We walked to the restaurants, the lake, and the Ernest Kemp boat tour to the not so old Maouri rock carvings. We had a comfortable stay, the unit... More

My husband and I have stayed here on several occasions and will continue to return when we come to Taupo as we find this motel to be in a perfect location only a couple off minutes from town, and is always spotlessly clean, the hosts always make you feel welcome and are happy to share their local knowledge of things...
