This was my second time staying here and it didn't disappoint. Close location to town but far enough away so it's not too noisy. The owners are lovely and were great at dealing with some noisy guests so everyone could get some sleep! The room was a good size with everything you would need and was very clean. It is... More

Spacious room, ideally located within walking distance of the lake. We stayed here to participate in the IRONMAN triathlon, and the hotel was very athlete-friendly allowing us to take our bicycles into our rooms. The beds were comfortable, and the hosts were super friendly. They arranged all our sightseeing tours, and even secured discounts for us! Highly recommended, and we... More

Had a very nice stay at this very good value motel while attend a concert in Taupo last weekend. Our group had a total of 6 rooms and all of them were clean, tidy, well appointed, with some them having splendid lake views. We had booked this motel on line and it well exceeded our expectations. I have paid a... More

Stayed here for one night. The motel was in a great location for us and the communal kitchen/dining area was perfect for our needs. It was fully equipped and clean and tidy. Our room 216 had a very noisy smoke alarm thing going on - couldnt find the source of the noise and totally forgot to mention it on check... More

We stopped over here for a night. The room was clean and decent, which provides the basic needs for the accommodation price. There was a common kitchen which we did not use. The location is reasonably near to the town. Parking is plenty and secure. The only downside is that there is no lift and we had two big heavy... More

my husband and i stayed here one night on our way to stay in rotorua. we weren't expecting anything special, but it was very clean and comfortable. we had emailed the owner letting him know that we would be getting in late, and he kept the office open for us so that we could check in. overall, good experience.

Stumbled across this backpackers on wotif.com. My boyfriend and I stayed here for one night. Super friendly and welcoming owners. Room was a standard studio with ensuite. Comfy bed, spacious and super clean room. Felt more like a cheap hotel rather than a backpackers. We stayed at another hostel a few streets away previously and for $5 more here per... More

Stayed here for one night during or travels. The rooms were clean but very basic. Just a bed and some clothes hanging unit. For a simple stop over on a budget it is ideal. You can walk to the town centre/lake front within 10 minutes or so. Staff were friendly and there was lots of parking underneath the building.

Stumbled upon this place whilst driving around looking for place in Taupo. It's not one of the flashy places with a lake view but it suited us just fine. The room was large enough and had basic facilities but that didn't matter because the large kitchen/dining area was just down the corridor and that had everything you could ever want.... More
