We stayed for a single night en route from Napier to Auckland. The facilities were reasonable. Bed was good. Shower was excellent. Plenty of space. Laundry facilities were fine. No major complaints about anything but we just didn't like it very much. We were processed very professionally and any queries were answered to our satisfaction. It seemed very business-like but...

Found online. Affordable, close to town, awesome accommodation. We had a room with a spa in so enjoyed a bottle to Champagne while watching TV. Staff brilliant and nothing was too much trouble. Would highly recommend to anyone wanting somewhere to stay in Taupo

We were walk ins and ended up staying for two nights,the nice lady on reception was very helpful with our booking as we unsure about staying the second night due to family matters, but I suspect she would go out of her way to help anyone who visits. Our room didn't have a lake view but we were told this... More

One night here. No local restaurant advice in compendium which is unusual but it stated menus available in reception. Trip Advisor suggested Lotus Thai as one of best Thai in NZ but reception didnt have a menu so we had to visit town to get one. Plates were not clean which made us look more closely at overall cleanliness which... More

We spent 2 nights here. The location is handy to shops and restaurants. Our room was spacious. The bathroom had no amenities though, only soap. Shampoo would have been nice. The soundproofing is not great. We could hear everything going on in the room next door. We would stay elsewhere next time.

I travelled here from Auckland on business and stayed here one night, I have to say I am really happy with both the room but mostly the service, they are welcoming and accommodating and even when I had a silly request about the lights it was still attended to immediately and still really friendly.

I have stayed here a number of times on business, and last week stayed with my family during school holidays for a night. Its not 5 star, but it is modern clean tidy, pleasant and excellent value for money. Great for a night or two. And the cooked breakfasts are a great start to the day! Good Wifi, which is... More

I just stayed here for 2 nights stayed in a room with a king and single bed, and a spa tub in the room. Rooms are clean, I had a cooked breakfast delivered both mornings which was included in the price. Very spacious rooms, had a balcony. Would go back for sure. Friendly lady at reception and happy to help.
