I cannot believe this Hilton hotel has been awarded five star status like a previous reviewer we were totally underwhelmed. The hotel is well located and maintained but the service is disorganised and slack, breakfast less than average with limited choices certainly not what you would expect from a hotel calling itself five star. I have stayed at other Hilton... More

Rooms are nicely furnished, tidy and roomy. I enjoyed using the spa and sauna facilities. Staff were friendly, there is free parking out front. Relaxing and quiet, de Brett's thermal pools is next door which is recommended for a private spa

My husband and I and our 9 year old daughter spent two nights at Hilton Lake Taupo. Although only from Hamilton, we thought we'd make the most of a quick trip to the snow, so decided to stay at the Hilton seeing as it was halfway. We arrived Sunday afternoon and were amazed with our room - the view was... More

The breakfast was included in our rate, breakfasts were very good. The only thing we mentioned to the front of house person was that the waitress did not... More

Stayed in a king relaxation suite for 1 night in June 2015. Room was spacious and beautiful. Freezing cold when we arrived & aircon worked double time for a couple of hours to heat the space up. There were no extra blankets in the room either so had to get one from housekeeping. Bathroom was too cold to take a... More

Very nice resort. Rooms are a good size and very comfortable. If possible get the breakfast as part of the package as they are fantastic. It is a bit of a walk to Taupo shops/cafes but location is fine if you have a car.
