We stayed two nights in a ground floor room within easy walking distance to the pool, sauna and the dining room. The pool at 27 degrees and the sauna pool at 35 degrees were just perfect for a swim or a restful stew before bed. Room service was faultless and staff were polite and always willing to help with advice... More

Our around the world experience did not get appropriate weather here but we thoroughly enjoyed this excellent hotel and particularly the restaurant, We explored an area along the lake shore which gave several excellent views but would hope for more sun if we ever return.

My wife and I stayed in the Hilton Lake taupo at the beginning of May. Altogether the stay was nice, staff were very friendly and helpful, but there were just a few minor points that I would expect a Hilton hotel to handle a little better. As you would expect, the room itself was very comfortable. We were in a... More

From service at the reception, to guest room service to the lovely ambience of the bar it was a very enjoyable stay. It was a wee walk from reception or the car park to our rooms but this is a small gripe. We used the spar pool which was nice although could have been a bit warmer with the cold... More

Very helpful and professional staff. Good view. Pool and gym top quality. Underground parking with proper spaces for a large car. Room was a decent size. Ticks all functional boxes and is just a nice place to be. I would recommend for a stay in Taupo, or even just to get away.

We stayed two nights during our visit to Lake Taupo. We got a ground floor room, however it was very quiet and peaceful overall. The hotel is more of a resort style, most of the facilities/rooms is accessible through walking outdoor. In winter, when we were there, it can be very cold. The room is very spacious and the bed...

Clean and comfortable. Nice restaurant on site. Great lake views. Nice big loggia on the ground floor. Modern clean room, with comfortable beds. Nice room amenities. Parking is a little away from the lobby, you could pay extra for underground parking. Would recommend for a Taupo stay, newer than a lot of the competition.
