The hotel is situated with a view of the lake and about a 5 minute drive from downtown. We took a 2 bedroom suite that was beautifully appointed and laid out with 2 balconies. The staff were very accommodating. If you want luxury in a beautiful setting, this is the place to book.

I came to this hotel with my parents who came all the way to New Zealand from Saudi Arabia. We stayed at the 3 bedroom apartment. The hotel's location is great with only a 7 min drive to the city centre. Staff were very friendly and cooperative. The view from the apartment was stunning. The apartment was very spacious and...

Excellent service, beautiful and spacious rooms (amazingly big bathroom). My partner and I really enjoyed our stay in this hotel. The quality of service and well maintained facilities made our weekend really relaxing.

The Hilton Lake Taupo is the only place I will ever stay! I cannot fault it in anyway and staff are always couteous and helpful. The rooms are immaculate and spacious and excellent value especially if you get a good deal on booking. The view is fabulous on the lakeside and it is so quiet and peaceful. A real treat!

If you're looking for a couple experience then select the heritage wing of the hotel. the rooms are a good size & the bathroom is great with a huge bath. The new section is more of a serviced apartment, larger than the heritage quite but missing the charm if you ask me. The service was incredible, they let us look... More

Very nice hotel to stay although a short time there. Service was good and the room/apartment was spacious with a big balcony, kitchen and large living area. I will definitely return there if I visit Taupo again.

Really good stay, have stayed before with my partner and we always enjoy it. Staff at check in are really friendly, they have a pillow menu, the shower is strong and the bed is massive. I had done a running race prior to checking in so the pool/spa area was ideal, the pool is smaller but I think nicer than... More

Lets down by average breakfast, no comfy chairs in room, an elevator your best not getting into, and, appalling Internet. Great view of Taupo. Dinner is pretty good. And the overall conference experience was great. Charging for parking is a joke - and making folks walk up the track if they aren't inclined to pay is unacceptable. Could be a... More
