My girlfriend and I loved this place. From the amazing room, so close to the lake the ducks and I became good mates, to the heated spa and pool, this was unbeatable! I will definitely be back and it will be soon!

This was my second stay and I am still an enthusiastic fan of this beautiful hotel on the edge of lake Taupo. The staff are very professional, friendly and helpful. It was the middle of winter but we were warm and cosy in our room and really enjoyed the grotto and heated pool. It was also great not having to... More

We booked two rooms in this lakefront hotel. The location can't be bettered. The rooms are well appointed and were warm and comfortable. The views from the room and room balcony are outstanding. We arrived just minutes before the most beautiful sunset over a glassy Lake Taupo. The bar (again with terrific lake views)was very inviting with a cozy gas... More

We stayed here for a night to treat ourselves whilst organising picking up our son the next day during the school holidays, we had a downstairs superior king suite, and overall have to say was very nice to chill so close to the lake, we were opposite a jetty, and was nice to stroll over and have a wine to...

the proximity to the lake is unbeatable. incredible view if you have the time to enjoy it. the hotel restaurant has a few exceptional dishes. highly recommend the beer battered oysters. the rooms are rather dark and a little dated. more services needed to make it a truly memorable stay.

Out of the hassle and bustle but close enough to enjoy Taupo. This hotels is on lake Taupo, with views to enjoy. However, make sure you obtain a room on the first floor, not only for the view but just outside the ground floors's room is the public pathway, making it less private.
