My wife and I stayed here with a friend 14th-16th April. Patrons were very helpful, and the accommodation was really clean and comfortable. Great value for money, we will certainly stay here again next time we are visiting Taupo.

We stayed here during the week and the place was fairly quiet, but even still the noise from the people in the pool at 9pm was enough to keep my young daughter from going to sleep. All the family rooms have a mezzanine bedroom upstairs which made it very difficult for getting a little person to sleep (as there were... More

The comfort inn was a lovely place to stay. The owners were lovely and very accomadating. The room was spacious the only thing to complain about would be the position of the tv downstairs it made it very difficult to watch - would be better on the wall Overall a really good place to stay and a great price!

Great place to stop off at. We had two nights here and the accommodation was practical and comfortable. There was a launderette which is always useful on a round the world trip. It had a swimming pool, although we didn't get time to use it as there was much to do around the area. Just a little walk to the... More

Right on the lakeside, this is a very pleasant place to stay. Manager was very helpful and accommodation was spacious - extra bedroom and bathroom on a mezzanine floor. Kitchen is basic but that wasn't a problem. You can walk into Taupo but it's about 2 miles, albeit a lovely walk along the lakeside. Didn't use the pool but it... More

This is the second time we have stayed with Cascades. The hosts can not do enough for their guests - they are great!! We were given a lakeview room but that meant stairs - no problem gave us a really nice suite. I had rung with a request for 3 rooms as we travelled with US guests - all were... More

Taupo is one of the less interesting places in NZ unless you are under-25 and like an all-action holiday. I'm over 65 and like a quiet one. Most of the motels are alongside the busy main road to the south of the town, with the immense lake on the other side of the road. But the Cascades is one of... More

I am on a long 7 week trip around NZ, staying in 24 motels so I can get cynical about places. But this motel was a winner. It might be 3 km outside town but it really doesn't matter. Taupo is a place you drive around, honestly. The motel is beautifully placed on the lake side - the first thing... More

The accommodation was modern, clean and well appointed, and just a few steps from the Lake. There is a small pool for guests and free wi-fi. Breakfast could be ordered at a reasonable price. Tiny niggles: the television could be watched only from the main double bed and not from the sitting area. Provision of tea-bags and shower gel was... More
