Check in was quick and smooth. We decided to pay extra and park underneath as we had a lot of luggage and surf boards, which was worth it as the open air car park is a bit of a walk. Unfortunately, the swipe card did not work and we had to be rescued. Our room 136 (I think) was nice... More

Great staff to welcome you, the apartments are lovely clean and modern, the restaurant is lovely for breakfast, lunch, dinner and snacks. Great pool and tennis courts. We find that they couldn't be more welcoming.

Clean with a great staff in a beautiful setting. Great swimming pool and gym with both dry and steam saunas! Very helpful staff with a great restaurant (rumored to be the BEST in Taupo). Not right in the middle of the city, but only a short cab ride away.

Wow. The one bedroom apartment has a full kitchen and laundry in the huge unit, The king bed is divine and very comfy with a huge bathroom With great views from the balcony we would nor stay any where else now. Jack was exceptionally helpful. Try the back way to Taupo avoiding the main lake front, way quicker.

Staff pleasant and helpful, good bar and restaurant,large pool and although a little out of town rooms large with outdoor decks overlooking the Lake. Colonial style building is nicely laid out , a bit of a shock to be asked for $15 for undercover parking that far out of town.

We have stayed at the Hilton Lake Taupo on several previous occasions. We have taken guests to dine there at other times. This stay was very much less than acceptable and the Restaurant was markedly below standard. This is an expensive location one of the highest in Taupo and should be top of the line. Its simply not. The Restaurant... More

Fantastic long weekend away. Love this hotel, friendly, helpful staff, quick service, lovely rooms, and the swimming pool/spa complex on a hot day is just fantastic. Met some lovely travelling quests and the lamb in the restaurant is well worth a visit.

Really lovely quiet place. They have managed to mix the old building with a new building perfectly. The bedding is really comfortable. The staff are all really lovely treating you with a big smile. Definitely the best hotel in Taupo!
