The pool, which I understand has been refurbished, was lovely but there was a charge for entry which we found surprising as the charge... More

Within a short drive to Lake Taupo and the Taupo Town Centre. Easy access to our favorite lakeside walks and cafes. Loved the cabin/apartment with a nice cooking facilities and a big room. Our kids enjoyed the simple playground and big trampoline, as well as the nearby thermal play area and spa.

We are a family with two babies. We stayed in the Taupo Debretts Spa Resort while in Taupo on 10-20 Nov. We had got a motel with breakfast provided through an online promotion. Upon arrival, we were greeted by the staff at the reception and she led us to our motel. We also found staff at this resort very helpful... More

We stayed in a very comfortable cabin with shared bathroom facilities. Being just across from these facilities was fine. The walls were a little thin and the people next door a little noisy but it was still great. Taupo is a great little town. The discounted pools at the resort are a MUST! We will stay longer next time and... More

Awesome accommodation, and they were very hospitable and willing to help when they knew we were a bachelorette party. We had a couple of self contained units that were joined to each other, and we were out of the way of other guests. Very cool venue.
