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. The Prince Motor Lodge fulfils all the prerequisites for a stopover: 1. Clean, well presented, affordable, rooms; 2. Friendly, accommodating staff; 3. Secure off street parking; 4. In close proximity, short walking distance, to... More

Great for family of four - great value, Not a new hotel but clean and practical. Fantastic location - walk to town, walk to the lake, close to restaurants. Spacious - well compared to Europe - very spacious. All ground floor - nice and quiet.

We stayed in April 2013 after leaving Hawkes Bay earlier unexpectedly, so we hadn't booked anywhere. So relieved to find this great motel for ourselves and 16 y old son. Good double bed in lounge, 2 singles in a bedroom with its own TV which he appreciated. Beautifully clean. Huge bathroom but tiny kitchen!- enough to sort breakfast and coffees... More

The reception very courteous on arrival and very helpful with wifi, office hours and meal options. Room was very good, comfortable with all the required condiments available. Compendium with all local restaurants and eateries, TV stations and local attractions. Will use again as the location, walking distance to the shopping region is very handy. Received an upgrade of room at... More

Had one bed place but the main problem with the room was the kitchen being too small, no work bench and no where to drain/dry your washing up. No space for a microwave either. Room was a good size and very clean but furnishings are quite dark and dated. Good bed layout for us with small children: with a double... More

We stropped one night. The motel staff were friendly and the location is good and handy for a walk into town. It's always a gamble when looking for a one night stop when touring and this motel suited us. I'd stop there again
