We stayed on Saturday checking in early at 1:15 pm having arrived earlier than expected, Checkin was managed with a smile, warm greeting and a very sincere "welcome back". As we were staying only for one night we did not take the upgrade to the lake view room that we could have paid for but we do recommend you do... More

Excellent service, friendly professional staff. The location of this hotel is close to Taupo town centre and overlooks the lake, with great restaurants and bars. The rooms are excellent and clean, lovely heated pool and fitness centre. The grounds are beautiful and well maintained. The only downside was the amount of flies on the food in the dining room for... More

Must stay if in Taupo, fabulous rooms, fabulous staff! We stayed here for our honeymoon and were lucky enough to be upgraded into an amazing suite. The heated outdoor pool made it possible for us to be swimming in early March and the spa and sauna were and added extra.

We enjoyed out stay at the Hilton Lake Taupo. The reception staff was very helpful and the restaurant food and service was excellent. The rooms were nicely appointed and the grounds were well kept. We opted for a larger Jr. Suite, which did not have a view of the lake. We would have preferred a amaller room with a view... More

The hotel is really nice and the room junior suite we had very spacious. We stayed 4 nights and the service was really good. We could see the pool from our deck and it looked gorgeous. To me it felt like apartments and not a hotel, I like a busy hotel foyer with bell hops and valet persons and you... More

This was not our first trip to the Hilton Taupo. The clean and spacious rooms combined with the heated pool and spa area combine to make it a great year round destination. Previously, we have found the restaurant to offer excellant quality food and service. However this visit we were not so impressed.

Hotel was ok, service good. rooms have nice furnishings and touches (like good bathroom facilities, great showerhead, great soaps etc) but the rooms were really small. internet was terrible - the connection kept dropping out. and for what you pay you really think the wireless should be free but that's pretty standard in NZ to have it as an extra...

We moved to the Hilton for just one night to get away from the Iron Man activities by the lakeside. The change of scene had us overlooking one of the geo-thermal areas around Taupo so much quieter than our previous hotel. The room was lovely - spacious, king bed (sooo comfortable), lots of little extras - I guess it would... More
