We paid $105 for 4 people, 2 nights which was OK. We had a crammed cabin, with a tv that didnt work, a microwave, toaster and a jug... but no tap? Bit useless. There was also no mirror in the room, and us being a bunch of teenagers staying there for a night out, was extremely inconvenient. The shared bathroom... More

The budget accommodation is exactly what it says on the tin but oh so much less. Filthy, cramped and quite frankly disgusting. The place smelt of smoke and there's just no excuse for the accomodation not being clean. We got ripped off as the only way to go was to accept the upgrade option for another $140. From other comments... More

I contacted the owner and received the internet price. He was helpful , and sorted some bikes out for us. Like he said to us on arrival ' it's not the Ritz you know', but it was absolutely fine. Hot showers, clean bedding, kitchen facilities. It's great for a little stop off, I wouldn't chose it for a holiday stay,... More

Stayed at the 'medium cabin standard'...Firstly we payed $75 per night where website stated $50 per night (ripped off), we payed for 2 nights, it was ‘noisy’ due to paper thin walls where you could hear the neighbours, the furnishings could of been picked up from a organics dump...fridge, microwave and oven appeared old and outdated, and it looked ‘unhygienic’...

Originally purchased three nights for $134 for two adults and a teenager, using there on line booking for the small cabin. Upon arrival had a look, would have met our needs all be it slightly cramped but no issues. Offered an upgrade to a larger cabin/unit for $180. Took the upgrade option. Due to it being a cabin, you share... More

Very cheap so I didn't expect much but so disappointed with the level of tobacco use. The drive ways have heaps of cigarette butts scattered around. There are large full (plant pot sized) ashtrays outside the front doors of each unit and the units themselves stink of stale smoke - not just a hint but like someone had recently lit... More

I read the reviews on this place and we still went as I wanted to give them the benefit of the doubt. I was sorely disappointed. So easy to make this place better, wash the walls down, paint the walls and ceiling, new bedding, new mattresses, steam clean upholstery, carpets. The bathrooms need to be gutted and start fresh, I... More

I booked in 11 people for a fishing trip. We pre-negotiated a flat rate per head on a shared room basis. We had 3 people in a 4 bed unit and he tried to charge us the full unit rate instead of the agreed flat rate per head. When booking, we checked that they had a communal area and BBQs... More

This place is atrocious. While it certainly was favourably priced, the conditions were well below standard, the facilities old, broken and very unclean especially the pots and pans, the shower had a dirty feel to it, the service was less than friendly and it is situated in a difficult to find location within Taupo's suburbs. I was most unhappy about... More
