Good for my one night stay in this older Motel. Everything you need in one compact unit. Grateful for electric fan on a really hot day. Bed comfortable, good stove top etc. Helpful Manager when checking in. Easy walking distance to township.

If you're looking for somewhere central in Taupo, but away from the traffic noise, Dunrovin Motel is the place for you. Within easy walking distance of the bars, restaurants and supermarkets, everything you need is right on hand. Tidy unit, very comfortable bed, quiet and restful location and kind host - we'll definitely be back.

We loved the little unit so much from the minute we saw it, it was just perfect for what we wanted. As we always take our pampered pooches with us on holiday we look for 'pet friendly' places. The unit we were allocated had a pretty little garden with parking next to it...and had a lovely Tui chattering in a... More

Excellent place to stay, for couples as well as for families. Booking.com says wifi is available only in public area but we got strong signal in our room too. The one bedroom apartment is spacious. We did not ask for room service but they came in everyday to change to towels. We were quite happy with the motel as well... More

Good value for money, good location and parking facilities available. Unit has kitchen, dining table and seperate bedroom Kitchen comes with all the basics. The unit has a heater and electric blanket but still a little cold. Free wifi but it has a terrible connection and is so slow it barely works.

Stayed one night after deciding to stay the night in Taupo. Looked at other motels that wanted $140 plus for a night then found this place. $80 for the night. Words can't describe how good it was. Most comfortable motel bed I've ever slept in. Was very clean comfortable and had everything for just $80.

We had an overnight stop in Taupo, and a night at $NZ96 for 1b rat the Dunrovin motel was good value. It's fairly old and original, but well maintained and clean. Plenty of internal space, but if you seek a modern place, this certainly is not it. No views and spartan grounds, but it is all that is needed for... More

We stayed only one night in a one bedroom unit on our way through Taupo. It was clean, quiet and comfortable, although the bedroom was so small we had to keep our luggage in the sitting room. Dunrovin is excellent value for money and if the opportunity arose we would definitely stay again.
