The reception people are very nice and polite! The room was nice and tidy. The bath tub was a big plus. The bed was okay. I did not like the fact that the breakfast wasn't included if you wanted breakfast it cost you I can't remember how much but I think it's a non negotiable not having breakfast when you... More

Right on the lakeshore. Reasonably up-to-date decor; units attractively designed. Can get a bit warm if sleeping upstairs on the mezzanine. Hosts were very helpful; nothing was too much trouble. Not walking distance to the central business area, but a great "base of operations" for seeing the sights around Taupo. Felt very much at home. The swimming pool and spa... More

Stayed 2 nights with an overseas visitor in unit 4. Spotlessly clean, spacious with a mezzanine floor accommodating the visitor- it suited perfectly. Also had a private patio area with free bbq attached to our unit so had other friends join us for dinner outside. The swimming pool was warm and also a spa pool. Had a fabulous time, in... More

A perfect venue for a couple and a single lady, plus a small dog. Rooms were comfortable and bathroom and shower good. This was to break our journey from Auckland airport back to Napier. The proximity to the lake is great, a short path and right on the lake shore. The only constructive criticism I have is that it would... More

We stayed for two nights and loved it. Situated 3 km on a straight road from the town centre, the setting is fantastic on Lake Taupo. Each apartment has allocated parking. Our studio was of a good size, clean and spacious with a queen bed, kitchen area with cooking facilities and fridge plus huge bathroom with spa bath and separate... More

We recently stayed in the Comfort Inn Cascades for 2 nights. We loved it! The owners are very friendly and helpful, the rooms are clean and comfortable, the spa pool was perfect after doing the Tongariro Crossing, and it's lovely to be so close to the lake. We particularly appreciated the Fair Trade coffee and hot chocolate, and their efforts... More

We have stayed previously and enjoyed our stay. This time we were relocating from Auckland to Wellington. A perfect halfway point to break your journey. As usual we were greeted by friendly staff who in spite of being "full" kindly accommodated our two vehicles on site. This is a lakeside property perfect for those evening and morning lakeside strolls. It... More

Stayed for 3 nights, very comfortable spacious room, cute courtyard & close proximity right on the lake. Highly recommended, would definitely stay again. It's about 2-3 km out of the town centre which is great, because it is very quiet & peaceful.

For years we have been taking a couple of days break from Auckland when we can get away. Lake Taupo is our favourite being an enjoyable four hour drive (with a lunch break at Huntly( and arriving in time for a stroll around the lake before dinner. We have stayed at the 'Cascades' recently, and love its location, style and... More
