The motel is a bit dated, but we were only there for one night so it didn't bother us too much. Room was clean but no A/C. They do need to put some hooks or a shelf in the bathroom as we had to put all our stuff on the floor. The staff were very friendly & helpful, great with... More

The photo in the ad for the room was not what we got. Our room was very dated and needed a really good paint, couches had cheap brown covers on them and the kitchen was so dated and not suitable for a family. Very cramped no room for the 5 suitcases we had. Bathroom had a good shower but no... More

This motel was rather average, and a bit of a let down considering the price we paid was equal to what we paid recently for 4 star hotels. The problem with Taupo in summer is that everyone goes there, and so the motel owners don't have to try that hard to get their rooms full. The room had been painted... More
