The owner was very friendly and helpful when booking and we found the motel to be excellent. It's in a great central location , very spacious for the whole family, modern interior and very clean. It was great value for the rate that we got. Also full Sky channel selection which was great.

Fantastic little motel! The owners are friendly and welcoming and it is only a short walk down the road to the centre of town. We were very impressed by the room as there were a lot of extra touches you don't get in regular motels such as your own water cooler/purifier, milk in a glass bottle and a full Sky... More

This is my travellers choice for staying in Taupo. I was most impressed with the room, the bed was very comfortable and there was no noise, which has been a problem with a few other places whilst on this trip. The staff were friendly and very helpful during our stay. Everything else was only excellent. Should I be passing through... More

We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at Birchlands - wonderful facilities, everything you could ask for and then with hidden surprise of a courtyard to sit in and towels provided for the hot springs or sailing. Per is a great host, perfect information and service. The really big bonus for us is that our dogs can come and stay too! Great... More

This motel is perfectly located, right in the middle of town... just a short walk from the waterfront from the shops and restaurants. Our unit was clean and well equipped. The beds and pillows were some of the most comfortable on our entire 1 month trip in NZ. Would stay here again in a heartbeat. Superb value for money.

We have stayed here twice and the rooms are clean and comfortable. The owner is friendly and extremely welcoming. We travel with our pet dog and that is never a problem. The hotel is in a great location and you can walk to the lake and even see the lake from the room. Totally recommend this hotel.

We were there in late November 2015 . This is a small budget hotel slightly out of town center ( 15 minutes walk) and about 10 minutes to the lake. Although it is not that "handsome" from outside, it is Nice, Quiet, Clean and Adequate . It has everything you need . Car can be parked right in front of... More

Absolutely love Birchlands Motel, I've been staying in Taupo all my life and my personal opinion is that it's the best motel out of all I stayed at. I love having the full kitchen facilities, the units are clean and affordable. The owners are lovely people and I love that a laundry service is also offered. We'll definitely be back... More
