We had a large corner room with everything we needed for a comfortable 3 night stay. This motel appears to be quite new, it isn't scenic, the motel rooms are set round a rectangle of concrete with parking bays near each room. It is a short walk to the lake and about 5-10 mins to the shopping area. The wifi... More

Stayed two nights. Very comfortable with great kitchenette and fantastic shower. The room and en-suite were extremely spacious. Pretty garden quiet area. Close to the lake and town. Very friendly staff. I would definitely stay here again.

Stayed here with family for 2 nights in a two bedroomed apartment. We booked this motel because it had air conditioning but we couldn't use it because it absolutely stank of fish. It was gross. Obviously the unit had not been cleaned for some time which is a worry. The unit was also covered in dust. Aside from this the... More

This Motel was comfortable and had all you needed for a short stay, however I wouldn't have wanted to stay there for a long stay. It was basic and a bit grubby in places, I couldn't have the air con on as it stunk of fish, but luckily it wasn't too warm, so I did without. Think it needed a... More

We stayed here for two nights in February 2015 with friends who were visiting from the UK. The two bed roomed unit we had was exactly what we needed, The place was very clean and comfortable, and the staff were very helpful. Also centrally located for an easy 5-10 minute walk into town.

We booked this motel after trying to find a wheelchair accessible motel in Taupo. Rob seemed to be theconly peron that knew what wheelchair accessible meant. Room 8 is where we stayed for two nights. A very clean and comfortable room with leg room under the kichen bench and a good size bathroom with wheel in shower (roll in shower).... More

We stayed at this motel in a studio room for two nights in late December, having booked it after reading reviews here on TripAdvisor. On arrival we were met by the friendly owner (Rob, if I remember correctly) . He talked us through a few things then led us to our room. At first I was a little disappointed as... More
