Very convenient location, step onto the lake front one direction and out the back driveway to the shops the other direction ( opposite Burger King, and only a short walk to all the Taupo shops).We had a 1 bedroomed apartment with 2 single beds in the lounge( we...

Great location with stunning views over the Lake handy to walk into the town centre with local restaurants and bars. Quiet, clean, plenty of parking, great laundry facilities and friendly professional staff. Who could ask for more!

Loved the clean, spacious facilities with comfortable bed and parking outside the room. Location was handy, parked the car and walked to the shops and the restaurants. Lake Taupo across the road what an awesome view. Well worth spending a night or two here.

Good location, just minutes walk from shops and restaurants. Modern 3 storey apartment with 1 double bedroom and one double room with single beds. Lockup garage holding 2 cars. Laundry and a plentiful supply of linen and nice thick towels. Lovely views of the lake opposite. The only downside is that the stairs may be a problem for elderly folk... More

Basic motel unit, clean and must say comfortable bed. Would suggest top floor, as we stayed on the ground floor and people above made a bit of noise. So handy to everything, we were able to walk to shops and restaurants. Staff very nice.

The room was clean and the place was easy to find. It was right opposite the lake and we could go for a walk in the mornings and before dinner. We could park our car right outside the door which makes it easy for loading and unloading. Dinner was within walking distance so it was very convenient.

Clean & tidy units on the lake front, although no lake view from units. Very handy to all amenities in Taupo. Within easy walking distance of Restaurants, shopping etc. Parking could be an issue if all units occupied, although plenty of parking available on street at rear of units.

Just across the road from the lake, close to shops and restaurants. Unit was clean. Reception was very friendly and setting up another bed was not a problem. Great value for money. Will stay again when back in Taupo.

Stayed here just one night. On arrival the reception was cordial and cooperative allowing a late check out with no problem and providing a quality wine glass I presume from a private collection as the ones in the unit were a little small. Had a kitchen in the unit which was useful and a spa bath which was also useful.... More
