My parents and uncle/aunti stayed here they raved about it. Very comfortable beds the host was wonderful and friendly. Stayed in room 6 and 7 were really nice. Would recommend. Had a mint meal at pub across the road which they also raved about.

Found the host to be unwelcoming over the phone and when we came in to check in at the reception. I must highlight that I was extremely disappointed with your heating system. In a season where temperatures drop to quite low temperatures, your in floor heating system does not seem to live up to it's expectations. I'm not sure if... More

We have now stayed at the Prince three or four times on short visits to Taupo. We have always found it to be clean, comfortable and reasonable value. It is conveniently located and has an excellent Thai Restaurant attached. There are a number of restaurants within walking distance. It is two blocks to the water front. An early morning walk...

This motel was in a great location in central Taupo. The room was well equipped and warm and cosy with a heat pump and underfloor heating. Free wifi was also a fantastic bonus :) The bathroom was large with a nice big shower.

Awesome accommodation! Lovely unit! Very clean, tidy and the heat pump was awesome, as it was the flood weekend and freezing lol! The managers were lovely people, very helpful, suggested a restaurant and a couple of things to do! Where to go for breakfast! Just made the weekend so much better.

Great location within easy walking distance to shops, bars and restaurants. Rooms are available for pet owners travelling with their house-trained dog. Under-heated tiled floors - great for the winter months; spa bath was really appreciated on the cold winter night that we stayed; very quiet and peaceful and night = great sleep. Will certainly stay there again.

We had a fabulous stay (this is my 5th time) - Karen & Terry made us feel so welcome, they were great with the kids (teenagers) and units were lovely and clean - and it's a stone throw from foreshore and the shops. Well worth the money!!!!

Stayed here for 2 nights over Easter whilst making my way home from Wellington. Cant get over the level of service received!! What stood out most is that I had made a point of letting Julie (Manager) aware of the fact that I may be arriving late at night with a new car which I explained was going to be... More
