We got a very pleasant 4 berth cabin which was a whopping good deal if you don't mind shared toilet, which I don't because the block was close by. Bed linen all clean and nice with a small kitchen (take your own milk for the coffee and tea facilities). Fun stuff for kiddies all in a nice setting. A short... More

Taupo DeBretts Spa Resort is awesome as it has a complete line of rooms (ensuite or not), lodges, and even site for camper vans (or RV - recreational vehicle). It has several thermal pools, spa, slides for the those who want to have more fun. Its a few kilometers away (perhaps 3 to 4 kilometers) from downtown; 1 km from... More

Excellent customer service and facilities. Would recommend. We stayed in a tent at the campground and found it to be lovely and quiet. Our young children loved both the playgrounds and the hot pools and hydroslides. Toilets and showers were clean with plenty of hot water. All in all it was an enjoyable stay and we will definately camp there... More

Reasonable price, very clean rooms with comfortable beds, quiet setting very close to town centre and other tourist attractions. Free wi-fi but very slow indoors, somewhat better when standing on front porch.

I'm not sure if it's the name that made me expect more but I was left just a little disappointed. We stayed on a camp site with our caravan, the pitch was small but as we were only staying 3 nights & it was the start of autumn it didn't bother us, I just made a note of better sites... More

We loved our stay at de Bretts. We stayed in an ensuite cabin which was fantastic, well equipped and everything you needed. The communal kitchen facilites were outstanding and we made use of the bbq's and kitchen area. The facilities far exceeded our expectations.

Just back from Debretts last week. Site is fab - especially the waterpark with natural pools. The slides are great fun. We stayed in one of the motels. It was a good size with all the basics you could need. Room was nicely decorated, but a little 'tired'. Not many sky channels, which as was raining was disappointing, and DVDs... More
