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

I had a cheap single room with shared bathroom. The place was clean and functional and very close to downtown. WiFi was $5 per day and worked fine. I didn't use any facilities outside of the room/bathroom. The narrow single bed was too soft for my liking, but that was fine as I was partying hard each night and passing... More

The rooms are very small. The motel is fairly old and needs renovating. On the first day, the cleaner didn't service our room, and when I notified the owner, she did it for me immediately. The owner is very nice and accommodating. There was no free wifi. The location is close enough to Taupo city centre if you have a... More

Good value accommodation, but it is definitely a budget stay, with all the facilities you need for a great stay in Taupo. Close to the town and restaurants, and we also got to enjoy the spa pool to ourselves for the evening!

Ciggy butts at front entrance, smelly garbage in kitchen. Dust throughout room. Very very hot inside. No towel hooks or place to hang coat hangers. Microwave in room didnt work. Reported this but no action taken. Disinterested staff. Never again.

The lady at Reception - didn't catch her name sorry - was very accommodating and helpful, especially as she was dealing with a noisy party group staying at the Motel the weekend I was, who were quite disruptive. The room is more than fair for the price. No free wi-fi, but there is in Taupo city centre. Shower and kitchen... More

My girlfriend and I stayed here over christmas. It was really clean and tidy. With lots of tourist info. Our budget twin was a nice room. We shared a bathroom which was fine as there was no one in the opposite room. It may have been different otherwise. The beds were comfy and it was great having a microwave, fridge... More

We originally booked a double room with private bathroom at $75/night (NZ) that had access to a kitchen but when we arrived there was a problem due to a refurbishment and we'd been moved to a shared bathroom kitchenette room (which apparently costs $95/night though we were still charged $75). It was a better room, the only issue I had... More
