We arrived at Birchlands Motel having booked a 1 bed apt for 5 nights. On arrival we were given a studio which of course was not our choice, however Ailyn the manager asked if we would stay in the studio with a price reduction and she would open the bedroom and reconfigurate the lounge. We stayed in the studio that... More

Enjoyed our stay a lot. Great accommodation - heat pump kept the unit lovely and warm, really good value for money. Very Pet friendly, took my small dog with me - nice safe environment for him. Very quiet even though close to town.

Stayed in November and extended quite happily. Other reviews say it all. Good position, reasonable rates, most helpful and cheerful staff. Gave good advice on locality, shopping, services and deBretts baths.

Stayed here in November 2014 travelling with my wife. I can't recommend this place enough. Here is why: Location - About a 5-10 min walk to town, 2 min walk to the lake. There is no real reason to stay any closer to town. Service - Friendliest staff possible. Always helpful and smiling. Answered all of our questions, which were... More

This isn't the biggest motel in Taupo but it's got to be one of the best value stays. Great rooms, well equipped with water coolers, good fixtures and furniture. .a very comfortable bed in a separate bedroom and a generous wifi allowance. We only stayed one night but would have gladly stayed longer. The location is pretty good being just... More

From the reservation so professionally handled, to the efficient checkin (much appreciated at the end of a long day of meetings) and then the room warmed by heat pump ready for my arrival, the comfortable bed and the wonderful refreshing shower, I can honestly say that Per is an excellent host and this will definitely be my choice for accommodation...

We weren't really sure where to stay in Taupo but wanted to be close enough to see the lake. Birchlands provided relatively cheap, clean, and decently sized accomodation with kitchen facilities in very close proximity to the townsite and to Lake Taupo. The bed was reasonably sized, and the bathroom very clean. Loved the twisty knob tap, much easier to... More

Great apartment, clean and tidy, huge bedroom, large shower and milk in the fridge. Easy to find. Overlooking the lake and handy for places to eat. Good value for money. Owners very friendly and helpful. Would go back.

Birchlands Motel epitomises the old saying of 'don't judge a book by it's cover'. It is possibly the best value for money motel my colleague and I have stayed in. Per and Bevan went out of their way to ensure our 2 night business trip was stress free. (Thanks so much for having a solution to our technical hiccup) We... More
