I had a studio unit which was attached to another room. The unit was clean and tidy and had everything I needed. The grounds are spacious and I got very good customer service. The only small downside was as the room I had was attached to another, with an inside door between the two, and sound between the two does... More

My family celebrated my mothers 80th birthday here 2 years ago.Not a good experience at all and sounds like very little improvement since.Owners need to up their game big time or they will be out of business. Seriously is it that hard to give good customer service and take pride in your business and accomadation?

On arrival our hopes were up as first impression was promising, but we left a little dissappointed. The units are large, & spacious. The individual units are well spaced apart allowing a certain degree of privacy (Thankfully for the long term residents they have staying in every second or third unit). On settling in, the uncleanliness started creeping in. The... More

On arrival we were told we had been upgraded from a standard one bed to what is in essence a single level villa. The shaded car port out front was a nice touch. The place was huge for a one bed with all rooms of a good size and a nice veranda to sit out on at the front. It's... More

We called when leaving Auckland to book at 1 bedroom apartment. When we arrived at 5pm to check in we discovered that we had been upgraded to a 2 bedroom apartment. Not that we needed the second room but the apartment was gorgeous! Lounge, spa bath, lovely clean bathroom, all set in a gorgeous setting off the main road. We... More

Stayed the night when in the area for a family event. The accomodation was average for the price paid. The double bed was 2 singles joined together which created an uncomfortable ridge down the middle of the bed. The shower had no shelves to put your soap etc.

Stayed for a family wedding. The ceremony was at the onsite café- which was convenient and nice. The two bedroom villa was well laid out and spacious and bedrooms generously size. Unable to check in until much later in the afternoon like nearly 4pm and we had to pay before getting our key - most strange. Bathroom could certainly do... More

We made our reservation through one of New Zealand's great i sites three days before we expected to be in Taupo. As it was one of the cheaper motels on our trip, expectations were kept low. We drove past the Huka Falls Resort sign with thoughts that it looked much too nice for the price we were paying. Did that... More
