After some dodge hotels in NZ I had low hopes. AMI blew me away with friendliness, facilities and cost. Laundry, free internet, spa room all good. Rooms were spacious, newish bathrooms were a treat (best shower in NZ), kitchen accessorised well. Only thought to improve would be parking for tall/long vans but staff resolved this ad hoc anyway. Great!

I arrived to a very spotless and comfortable room. I was booked on a trek to the Tongariro Alpine Crossing that was cancelled because of lack of numbers. The owners helped me find another option and I was booked on bus to the crossing the next morning. I spent the night after the crossing in one of the most comfortable... More

It is clean, spacious and quiet. The owners are really friendly. It is close to the lake and close to the CBD. Definitely great value! We only stayed one night, but would definitely be comfortable staying for a week.

We received the warmest greeting from our hosts, and lots of helpful information on pretty much everything Taupo! The Inn is situated close to, but not on, the Lake. And close to some nice eating places. It's a bit of a hike to the main touristy strip, if that's where you want to spend your time. We had a corner... More

Clean, close to town, off the main road so reduced traffic noise, reasonable value for money. These are the good bits. Smallish, cooking facilities "ok" but poor when compared to other places. Unfortunately the establishment is let down by poor internet speed/access

We stayed only for one night. The service was brilliant. We stayed in a apartment with 2 rooms and a lounge. It was just perfect for us and our little girl. Traveling with a baby is not easy, but having the comfort of not bringing a cot or high chair was just brilliant. The rooms are very clean and the... More

We stayed twice, on the way up the island and on the return as a stopover. Booked it through Flybuys (local loyalty scheme). The 1st time we scored a really neat one bedroom suite with a massive double spa bath and nice toiletries, on the return journey, while we got a 2 bedroom unit (for the 3 of us) it... More

We stayed at the Acapulco with our 3 children and were very happy with our experience. The booking process and details were all straightforward. The kids enjoyed the small playground. The location was a pleasant walk from the town centre.

The Acapulco Motor Inn was well located near the centre of town and restaurants/café/shos. Walking distance to everything, the rooms were clean and very comfortable. Fully self contained and well appointed. Every one was very friendly. The motel was very quiet even though it was located close to the esplanade. Lovely stay, highly recommend this Motel.

Me and my sister recently booked to stay at this motel via booking.com. we were told that the standard studio had a double and sofa bed so on arriving at the motel and getting to our room, we noticed this was not the case. I went down to reception and Robert the owner was nothing but helpful. He apologised for... More
