Our room was beautiful and faced the mountain and there was a bottle of bubbly in our room wishing me a Happy Birthday. All other rooms... More

Always enjoy staying at a Hilton hotel & this one didn't disappoint. We arrived 4 hours before the advertised check-in time & were allocated a room by the Duty Manager without hesitation. The room was perfect - clean, fresh, warm & with a lovely view. Enjoyed a very nice lunch on the restaurant deck where the staff couldn't have been... More

After a couple of days at Mt Ruapehu in the snow staying at Hilton Taupo was luxury. Wonderful heated pools that I lost my husband to for several hours. Great location only a few minutes back to Taupo shops. Rooms were immaculate and lovely staff too.

I booked a weekend at the Taupo Hilton as a birthday surprise for my wife. When a reminder e mail was sent she saw it and it spoiled the surprise, however when I mentioned this to the front of house staff they upgraded the room at no extra charge. They couldn't have been more helpful. The Restaurant Bistro Lago was... More

Staff were fantastic, helping us from the moment we arrived with our heavy luggage. They were also helpful in providing suggestions for activities and sights around the town. The room was amazing - very spacious and impeccably presented. Our room had an amazing view looking over Lake Taupo but it was a bit of a trek to get into town... More

Stayed in a one bedroom apartment where the view from the fourth floor was amazing over Lake Taupo! The room was very spacious with full kitchen, washer and dryer.
