Clean and comfortable but only spoke to the female owner twice and both times she wasn't friendly, we locked ourselves out at 11.15pm so I rang her from outside our room and she sighed loudly then said "I'm in bed" not at all friendly, and she was the same when I rang a few days before departure, so won't be...

Thank you for your review, but was some what suprised as when your husband checked you out, he thanked me, said lovely place and will see you next time. Sorry that you felt I was grumpy, but being woken up after a very long day, I could have been a bit short, I apologies once again. More

We stayed here for one night on our way south. The receptionist was lovely (possibly the owner), the room was nice, in a far corner of the building, and the furnishings were pretty modern. The kitchen facilities in our room were basic (what we had paid for, so no problem), but I did see the kitchen area the next morning... More

A comfortable, two night stay was enjoyed recently. Silver Fern Lodge has very good on-site parking and is only 3 short blocks from the town centre. It is not close to many attractions, but reservations for most are available at the office. It is spacious, new, has a computer room and a large, well equipped dining room.

We stayed here for one night on our way back through Taupo. We were not aware that it was a hostel. We booked a Executive King Room, which was spotlessly clean, nicely decorated with very modern furnishings, very large with a wardrobe, couch, extra chair and a huge bed, very comfortable too. The bathroom was also a good size, spotlessly... More

Nice clean hostel, very central location. It was off season so was quiet. Staff were helpful and gave good advise on the volcanic sites to visit. Kitchen was large and spacious and the tv room was cozy.

Very nice stay, stayed here a few months back. Nice spacious clean rooms. Receptionist was friendly and helpful. Only stayed one night, wish it was longer. Now live in Taupo but will recommend friends and family to stay :)

I stayed just for one night, it was the best price I could find in Taupo and I felt like home. Everything was amazingly clean, lots of showers, quiet, cosy, comfortable bed and no extras like in other places I’ve stayed for the same price where you have to pay for the towel or even the soap in the sink....

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
