Really comfortable place stay on our 3 night visit to Taupo. We had a 7 month old baby and the hosts were super helpful setting up a travel cot for us and making us feel very welcome. The suite was VERY clean! And came with free (sometimes slow) WI-FI. A good walking distance to town, but expect a 15 min... More

We had a wonderful 3 nights stay here during our visit to Taupo. The unit was very clean and spacious with a kitchenette and spa bath. The hosts Keith and Philippa are very friendly and nice. Would definitely prefer staying here again, and we recommend this place.

I spent 9 nights during a fishing trip to Taupo, the motel was super-clean and really perfect for my needs. Walking distance to the middle of town (it took me 12 minutes), right on the lake but so quiet I heard no road noise at all. Best shower ever, great water pressure and plenty of hot water right away. The... More

Stayed 8 nights in early March. Our unit was very comfortable, quiet and spotlessly clean. The lovely sunny balcony with lake views was perfect for relaxing and watching the Ironman. Easy walk into town and to restaurants. Just across the road from the swimming beach. Keith and Phillippa were very friendly and helpful hosts - nothing was ever too much... More

Only stayed one night. Motel is lovely and spotlessly clean. Great hosts, places they recommend are excellent. Motel is fair walk to centre of town (about 20min) and as we were pressed for time we opted to drive.

I had a weekend away and chose this motel because of its location. I was not disappointed. It was just over the road from the Lake and only a 20 minute walk from town. The room was clean and in good condition. It had a great spa bath and a functional kitchen. The staff were friendly. Even though it is... More

Great little motel that suits all sorts, clean, light and comfortable, handy to town and right across the road from the lake. They were able to cope with our very late arrival and basically made sure we had everything we needed. Recommended for all travelers.

Stayed at the motel for the last three years on our way to Napier for the Art Deco Weekend. We always enjoy our stay, with very accommodating friendly hosts. We will be back again next year. Thank you once more!
