Uncomfortably hot room with soft beds. Wifi abysmally slow, unusable. Kitchen filthy despite arriving right at check in time. Generally very depressing place and we were not given the ability to cancel further nights. Great price, we paid $50/night for a budget twin, but it definitely was a bad choice. Boiler, fridge, toaster, tv etc matters little when the room... More

Has everything you need, the beds are very clean and comfortable. Slightly cramped though, and the WiFi is very expensive and very slow. Kitchen is slightly small but well fitted. Overall this was a good place to stay

Arriving at 10am I was told I could not book in until 2pm, this is even when I had booked online, found this most unhelpful as we were going to a concert, after the concert we were not the only ones trying to check in, the receptionist needs to learn a few skills in dealing with the public. As for... More

This accommodation is great value for those on a tight budget. The rooms are equipped with kitchen, which allows you to save money on eating out. The bathroom is only shared with one other room which we found very satisfactory. It's a bit of a walk to the centre of town but not too far. Wifi is not free however... More

I booked a single room with shared bath, It was compact, the bed was to soft for my liking. There was nowhere to hang clothes. Cobwebs were everywhere and the shower could have done with a good clean. The spa needed some attention too.

The first weekend of the school holidays so accommodation was at a premium. I had a double deluxe with shared bathroom. Room was compact - no where to sit other than on the bed. Noise travels easily in this motel because of the vinyl floors. Room warm and no heating needed. Room starting to look tired - plastering work needed... More

I got the single room deal for $35 and it was fantastic value for money! The room was spotless, with its own a TV, microwave and fridge, and the bed was really comfortable. The room was also really warm without even turning on the heater; which was a big bonus in freezing cold Taupo! The shared bathrooms are actually shared... More
