This park is a nice park with a great view however it lacks some essentials that make a stay pleasant. They have a 5 min hot water limit in the showers and I would say that it was perhaps even less that 5mins. I still had conditioner in my hair when the water went off (even though I had been... More

Awesome place. Very comfortable and clean one bedroom self-contained unit with cooking facilities and bathroom. Staff friendly and welcoming. Love the attention to detail with the way guests towels are presented! Stunning views over lake Taupo. Several trampolines and great kids play area. Best Fish 'n' Chips near by. We loved this place so much on our way to Wellington... More

Great place to stay, clean, comfortable and warm, helpful friendly staff. Would stay again. Nice and convenient to town centre too. Great for families, playground, spa and bbqs. Freeview TV and DVD was useful for night-time too.

Spent two full weeks in a very cosy, clean and delightful chalet. Plenty of amenities for fun, games, fishing and BBQ. Close to town and all freeways to use it as a base for the area. We will return again as we felt very welcome by the management and staff alike. Thank you Great Lakes.

An excellent park that has all the amenities that you can think of. There is a place to do a bbq, to clean fish, a dispenser for boiling hot water etc etc. The place is quite large and the staff make sure everyone has their private space. It costs 38 NZD for a powered site, 7 NZD for 24hr WiFi... More

Easy reservation, excellent facilities, wonderfully and peacefully situated close to the lake and still close to Taupo too. But what really makes it special are Carl and the whole staff who... More

I returned to the Great Lake Holiday Park for New Zealand Ironman at the weekend. It is always such a pleasure as this place is family-run and great supportive staff. To return for this year's event I was overwhelmed by the owners with a beautiful card and flowers in my cabin. This is a fabulous place to stay for any... More

The facilities were good and there was enough space for our campervan. The staff was able to point out a good restaurant with pick-up and drop-off service. Close enough to Lake Taupo to enjoy it, far enough away to miss the crowds.
