Stayed one night. Room was sizeable and comfortable. Motel was pretty close to town centre. Situated near Lake Taupo! There's a hot tub you can soak in at the end of the day! Should remember to get some of the salts for your own salt bath spa.

Nice motel room with all the amenities you need. Especially good is the heated floor which is fantastic in winter. Just a few minutes from the town centre. Wonderful jacuzzi in the bathroom. Highly recommended.

An easy place to stay, always warm and friendly. I love the heated floor and cosy room. My fellow traveler in another room had a cold floor but he was comfortable in the King bed. "I will be back". Parking is easy with plenty of turning space. Thank you

Spent a long weekend here. We had room no. 1. It had a courtyard and a hot tub bath. The rooms are setup like a suite. They have kitchenettes and the place works. Plenty of room. This was queens b'day wkend. So it was cool outside, but the room has underfloor heating and a good heat pump, so we weren't... More

Good location, short walk to Taupo's night life and shops but far away not to hear the noise. Has small kitchenette etc, comfortable bed, underfloor heating, would stay again. It caters for all needs, our lounge had two extra single beds which is handy if you had children traveling with you. Private outdoor courtyard with a BBQ is a plus... More

This place was a lovely surprise. Very comfortable, big spa bath, lovely big bottles of hand wash, body wash and conditioner. Air con was a real plus as we found it nowhere else in our NZ stays! Unlimited free fast wifi for as many devices as you like was a HUGE winner for our teenagers who didnt want to leave!

This was one of our one-night stays during our NZ trip and it met our requirements - reasonably close to the town centre and comfortable. The manager arranged for the immediate replacement of our fault shower head, which was pleasing. The car parking was good and the whole booking-in procedure efficient.

My wife and I stayed at th Alpine Lake for 2 nights mid March. Everything about the place was great (and that includes the owner who was very helpful). It is well situated with a 10 min. walk into Taupo town Centre and Lake Taupo.

The Lodge is a short-ish walk to/from Lake Taupo, giving that bit of exercise which could otherwise be neglected. It also means it's within easy reach of countless restaurants and cafes, making it an ideal location for visitors to the area. The lodge itself is well appointed with plenty of space, very clean, warm, an inside spa (which we didn't... More

Stayed here over the weekend Iron man was on, so paid top money. Executive spa suite a waste of money. $280 per night , all windows frosted, no outdoor area to sit, felt like a prison. Bedroom TV tiny attached to wall . Nice and clean but not executive by any stretch of the imagination.
