We stayed with a group of friends all going to the Summer Concert. Taupo was booked out for the event and the service we all received at Prince Motor Lodge was still excellent even though it was an extremely busy time for them. We have all booked again for next year. The Motor Lodge are very helpful in arranging rooms... More

Another excellent stay at Julie & Ron`s motor lodge. Once a month I overnight in Taupo on business and the Prince Motor Lodge is my first choice. Clean , tidy, well appointed , close to town centre and super friendly hosts. Will certainly be back again & again and yep - again.

We booked an overnight stay when travelling to Wellington. Everything we needed comfy bed clean although our room was a bit dated. Large bathroom but very tiny kitchen. Close to town a restaurant on site and a lovely English pub across the road.

We booked The Prince Motor Lodge to celebrate my Dad's 50th, and Julie was kind enough to give us the conference room. The hotel is lovely and clean, and has all the amenities you would hope for , definitely great bang for buck! Fantastic location. The conference room is great also! Great customer service :)
