All the staff were fabulous and made our stay amazing. The free upgrade room was luxurious, clean and very comfortable. We had a sauna and lovely soak in the heated swimming pool, robes and extra towels were appreciated. We also took advantage of the onsite restaurant and quite honestly it was a wonderful experience, 10 out of 10 for the... More

We had a Standard Lakeview room, and we were disappointed with most aspects of our stay. We were welcomed by a very efficient and polite guy on check-in, but he appeared to be the only decent staff member here we encountered. We had staff members smoking outside our room on the balcony, who gave us weird looks when we wanted... More

A warm welcome and very efficient reception was our first impression. The views are beautiful. Room was spacious and very comfortable. The staff were all efficient and very helpful with any queries we had. The location is a short drive away from restaurants and shops but we enjoyed the secluded feel. We had a good stay.

Pretty cool location, unfortunately the rooms come with carpet. But huge flat-TV and amazing view out from the balcony!!! And free parking for the guests. The only pity is that it is way too far away from Taupo Downtown for walking.

Dear Mijito - I am pleased that you enjoyed our lake edge location and views - yes it is a long walk into town but beautiful and flat most of the way - lovely in nice weather.Taupo does not have any lake edge hotels until you get to our distance from town so this is the benefit we pay for....

After an extremely disappointing stay in Rotorua, it was such a pleasure to stay at a this beautiful resort. We had no reservation and they accommodated us seeing the room first before we agreed to stay. We paid more than we usually do but it was well worth it.
