Stayed overnight as we drove back to Auckland from Palmerston North and had a stopover. The place is located slightly out of town which is nice and quiet. It does have a great view of the lake and it was a nice morning on our leaving day which was good. The staff were friendly and helpful - Even allowed a... More

We had room 10 and discovered no issues at all. It was clean, GREAT view, room service was very friendly with great attention to detail in cleaning the room each day. We ended up moving our mattress into the lounge area so we could watch TV at night more comfortably and wake up with the sunrise over the lake each... More

The view from our room was nice, it had a comfortable bed and had easy access to tourist attractions. We stayed in room 2 while we were there and have to say it's rather neglected. If it wasn't for the view I probably wouldn't stay there again. I don't know if it's lack of money or bad management but some... More

I decided instead of driving back home after flying to Taupo from Wellington, i decided to book a motel. I paid $104 through Wotif for a lakeview upstairs apartment. The lady at reception was lovely! Carparking was available under the units which was handy. My huge room had a fantastic view of Two Mile Bay. Was a little dated, but... More

I was pleasantly surprised at this place. It was a last minute booking and I wasn't sure where abouts it was in Taupo. The manager was very friendly and helpful with a sense of humour which is sadly lacking in some motels. The bedroom was comfy and clean and the apartment was a little dated but was clean and there...

Very roomy apartment with outstanding views. Set back from the road so no noise. A little dated but good value. Very helpful manager organised a replacement remote for heat pump. Recommend to those seeking quality budget accommodation.

Cheap and tacky. Look for somewhere else. Poorly maintained building and facilities. Uncomfortable bed crappy linen. Worn holes in the towels. We wanted to move that night to another place. On the positive side the location is great next to the Lake and the rooms have a good view. Not recommended and we will not be back here. There are... More

Nice & clean. Very friendly service. Big unit & the spa bath was awesome after a day of snowboarding. It was a cold night and the heat pump didn't warm the unit at all. We had to hop under blankets to stay warm. Very disappointing. Complementary breakfast was a nice touch but the presentation was lacking.

Friendly service, easy to find, good parking, Quiet. We had a pool front room (but stayed in July (winter) so swimming wasn't considered, but finding a spa bath in out room was just the ticket. We were cold from skiing at Whakapapa in the afternoon so the bath was awesome. After the bath, we went to sit in front of... More
