Stayed here for Friday and Saturday night as we were spending the weekend snowboarding at the mountain. It was a cold weekend and the hotel was a warm, and friendly place to... More

We had planned a trip to Mount Ruapehu for last weekend and booked 2 x 3 bedroom apartment at Hilton, Lake Taupo. Prior to arriving we spoke to Umesh as to what bedding configuration we needed and Umesh organised everything perfectly.He went an extra mile to make sure that we were comfortable and had everything we required and even came...

The experience was great for the whole family. From dinner to the room to the heated swimming pool.Even the breakfast buffet was much better than usual. The kids loved their first 5 star experience and the proximity to the hot springs pools was a real plus.

We spent two nights at the hotel. Despite being called Hilton lake Taupo, the hotel is not anywhere near the lake and it is certainly not a walking distance from the lake. However, some of the room feature views of the lake. Check in was messy. First of all, finding a place for parking was not easy and we just... More

Stayed in a lake view room on the Heritage wing of the hotel. The room is very comfortable with high ceiling, warm and adequately furnished to cater to the business traveller. There is a shared verandah (shared only with the next room) that will be really useful in the summer months to create a nice indoor-outdoor flow. Highlight for me... More

Overnight stay only. The reception staff member who checked us in was superb. Explained everyjthing very clearly, was polite and helpful. We upgraded to a large apartment in the new block for $50. The apartment was luxurious with fabulous view across Lake Taupo towards Mts Ruapehu, Ngauruhoe, and Tongariro. Impeccably clean, well appointed with full self-catering facilities. The included breakfast... More

Quite honestly, I wasn't expecting much before my stay. I have stayed at many Hiltons before and don't expect much from big box hotels. I kept my expectations low and perhaps that's why I enjoyed my time here so much. The location of the hotel is about a 5 min drive from the actual lake. It would be about a... More
