Booked into the Huka Falls Resort as they were the only place available. NOW I KNOW WHY! SOME PROBLEMS ENCOUNTERED: 1. Had to change rooms as the 1st room had a faulty TV aerial. 2. Our Playstation Vita went missing and was removed from its case and stolen. 3. Not enough hot water to fill the spa bath and then... More

Only stayed there for one cold night. The staff was really friendly and gave us a call to confirm the booking and arrange check-in. The unit itself is quite big and well-enough equipped for minimum cooking even though we did not use the kitchen. The only heater was in the living room and tripped after 20 minutes with no access...

The resort presents well in photos but wasn't quite as good as expected. A little ways out of Taupo which is neither here nor there when you have a vehicle but would look elsewhere in the future. Stayed in a two bedroom apartment with another couple while another set of friends stayed in a one bedroom. There was a massive... More

We stayed one night here while on a weeks holiday to New Zealand. This self contained unit was perfect for our needs. Parking very close and easy to unload our car. Simple and comfortable. Very handy to the Huka Falls.

I stayed here overnight with my partner whilst we were passing through Taupo. The rooms here are in small cottages (which are split into two - half is the single room, the other half is the studio), and are clean and cosy. Very short drive to the city centre, lake, and the Huka falls. Room contains a heater and an... More

My cousin and I decided to spent two nights in taupo and found this place on booking.com. We didnt really expect much, but oh my, for the price we paid ($128 for two nights) was amazing!! The studio room is very cosy, 2 single beds, very comfy, both electric blankets and wall heater(is a bit loud at night) works. All... More

The 2 brm unit had a spa bath, which though normally a worthwhile feature in a unit, in this case proved a let down because once the bath was filled there was no hot water for anyone else. A check of the tiny electric hot water heater found it to be totally inadequate for anything else but a shower, and... More

Really good room, very spacious with a kitchen and TV and sofa. Separate bedroom. Perhaps a little dated but was kept extremely clean. Lots of DVDs to borrow as well. Unfortunately, the bedroom was absolutely freezing at night. There was no heating in the bedroom itself and one of the electric blankets did not work. Excellent accommodation but really need...

We spent part of our honeymoon here and loved our stay, so were very keen to get back. We had booked a studio room for this stay however after we came back from our evening meal we found the room hadn't been cleaned properly, with hair found in the shower and worse still in the bed.
