We didn't expect a 3000 sq. ft home as a rental, but man did we get it. This place was amazing. The view of the lake and the mountain was incredible. Big deck, with a table to sit at, two stories, two bedrooms, full kitchen, plenty of places to sit and hang out. We rented this place for only one... More

As other reviewers have said, this is not really a hotel...more like a holiday apartment. When you arrive the owner/manager appears with his clipboard and in our case, seemed unsure if we had a booking but then produced the receipt for payment. Hmm. He told us on least six occasions that the property had a 100% occupancy rate. Well anyone... More

When we booked this online, we thought it was a "hotel". It is not a hotel, but is a duplex type of building which seems to have been split into three apartments. We had booked just one room, however upon arrival were told there had been a cancellation so we had been upgraded to the two story apartment. We only... More

This is a strange set up, located in a residential area. We arrived on a Sunday night and wasn't easy to locate. We made our booking through bookings.com. We booked the Queen, when we arrived we were told we had been upgraded, this actually was not the case, so jor sure why he said this. If you like a hard... More

Stayed here for 2 nights for 300$. Emailed the owner a week before we stayed and received no reply... Not good start from a place that markets itself as 'the most boutique hotel in Taupo. Never mind I thought... I booked a queen suite with 'amazing views'.. And to be fair they are... But from the window behind the sofa... More

We booked a Queen room, but arrived late (8.30 p.m) and as we were the last people to arrive we were upgraded into an apartment that is normally $300+ - we paid $119 - cheaper than a cheap motel. The lounge would seat 14 people. We had a huge downstairs kitchen/dining/seating; one bedroom; bathroom with shower and bath; upstairs had... More

Heading to Taupo for a family reunion, and booked to stay 1 month in advance. Drove 5 hours on the day to arrive, and the manager say he has no record of my booking, and they were full, even though I had a confirmation from them. Funnily enough they had taken my money pretty quickly!

Booked this on basis of description on web site. Was not expecting to be in part of an upmarket townhouse in a residential subdivision. Took two turns around the block to eventually find the place. Could not recognize it from the website photos and the sign is small. Still wasn't sure I was at the right place till the proprietor... More

We stayed here for 4 nights while on holiday in taupo. On arrival it wasn't what we had expected and no signs about how to check in, however a man quickly appeared to explain it all to us. We were upgraded from a queen room to a 1 bed room apartment which was very nice. The room was very clean,... More
