Booked one night away for our wedding anniversary. The staff were fantastic and we really appreciated the upgrade. The room was well appointed, nicely presented and the view out to the lake delightful. We had dinner at Bistro Lago and would highly rate it to anyone. We loved the degustation menu and once again the service was impeccable.

We arrived late in the evening after travelling from Auckland. Checked in with reception whom pre booked us a table at the restaurant. Had a beautiful meal with drinks - very relaxing after a long drive. Went up to our room to find our bags perfectly arranged after being dropped off whilst we relaxed and ate. Again another fantastic night... More

The hotel is easy to find and evenso the surroundings in front of the building are looking a bit wild the grounds are very tidy and the lookout over the lake towards the mountains is stunning, as long as you...

We stayed two nights recently in the new section of this hotel and enjoyed staying here. It was clean and spacious. We had a rental car and there is plenty of parking. We enjoyed nipping next door to the hot pools as well. Bathroom was lovely and we had a large balcony. The service was friendly and efficient.

The Hilton was able to accommodate for our unusual group of three adults and four children under 11 years old. The apartment was spacious and we had amazing view of lake Taupo and mount Ruapehu. Absolutely loved our stay

We stayed at the Hilton after a bad nights sleep at De Bretts next door (thats another review). We found the staff to be friendly, and efficient, and the hotel itself to be well maintained inside and out. It has a lovely spa out back which is great on cold winter nights... also less tourists during the winter so it... More

A great stay - clean, warm and comfortable with expansive lake views. Restaurant is an great place to dine for both dinner and breakfast. We did not want to leave the premises on a wet winter's night so it was good to be able to do everything in the one facility. Excellent service from everyone.
