A spacious two bedroom unit close to Taupo CBD and Lake. Overall tidy with good amenities. A swimming pool and spa pool in the complex. It is advertised as a luxury unit, however, cleanliness let the unit down and it lacked some basic maintenance. However despite this, it was peaceful and quiet. The air conditioning was welcome after a very... More

Relaxing stay. Close to cafes, swimming beach, shops etc. Free breakfast excellent. Young lass very helpful, brought me bread when my husband had a hypoglycaemic episode💐 All the staff members were in fact welcoming. Coffee replenished daily. Cleanliness 10/10. On site swimming pool good for a cold freshen up.

We stayed at the Lake Taupo Motor Inn for two nights as a stopover on our way further south. We were very happy with the room, which was scrupulously clean and spacious. The location of the Motor Inn was perfect - just a short stroll in to town. The breakfast was a bonus. One small quibble was the fridge which... More

We recently had to make an unexpected trip to Taupo, and even though it was a busy time, the staff on the front desk of this motel were very accommodating, and managed to get us in for two nights. We had a lovely spa, suite, with a balcony and lake views. We didnt use the spa, but coffee and tea... More

The room was great, very clean and tidy and a great view. Breakfast was complimentary and was very tasty. Centrally located not far to main shopping centre. Only problem was that you could hear everything from next room, could hear them all night and then finally they decide to sleep and were snoring. Apart from that a nice place to... More

We had a beautiful stay here. The rooms were clean and a good size and the cooked breakfast was a lovely touch. Excellent value for money and walking distance to shops, restaurants etc. Nothing too much trouble for the front desk.

Clean, large, quiet room for a family. BBQ area basic but ok. Small self contained kitchenette-adequate. Management very helpful. Walking distance to main street shopping. Short drive to bungy (not that we did this), and the natural 'free' thermal springs.

At first I wasn't planning to stay here, but I was attracted with their jacuzzi inside their bedroom. The price is not so bad at all. I booked the executive suite with jacuzzi for $142 at agoda. The room is very spacious, very clean, has aircon, and jacuzzi. The several stuff that could make my stay better is if they... More
