We would absolutely stay here again anytime and have highly recommended Cascades to everyone we've spoken to since our visit. From the first phone call until checking out Paul and Sue were super friendly and so helpful. There are complimentary pool towels, bbq (gas bottle and utensils delivered to our door!) We did not hear either of our neighbors yet... More

Overall, our stay was great during the day. We were booked into the lower level unit and when it came time to sleep, we could hear the person in the room above pacing constantly around heavily, in the evening and EARLY (4:30am) in the morning, the television, the sound of dishes being done, the spa bath jets being turned on...

Great situation right on lakefront. Spotless unit and friendly staff. Cleaners were lovely and units were serviced daily. The lakefront here is a bit more private and the Lions walk is right past the motel which is a lovely walk either into town (30 mins walk) or out to 5 mile bay(about 30 mins in other direction). Superb for running... More

We were upgraded to a second level room which had high ceilings and a view of the lake which was very nice and appreciated. The owners were sweet and there was a place to park our car and free wifi as well. There was a bathtub and shower, as well as a kitchenette. We did have to drive to get... More

My family and I stayed here for 3 nights. The owners , Paul and Sue, were great. Really friendly and very helpful. The rooms were excellent for a family of four. The pool and spa area very clean. The location on the beauty lake was fantastic. I would highly recommend this place to any families.

We have stayed in many hotels in Taupo and this has to be the best value for money. The family rooms are spacious with everything you need, and the owners are friendly and helpful. There is room for trailer parking, and a nice pool and spa pool, as well as a barbecue outside your room. The motel is right by... More

When booking for a place in Taupo I found most motels offered the same/less at a higher cost. I was trying to figure out why, and literally the only things I could think of was the decor was a little dated (if you're like me you don't care) and it was further away from town but that does make it...

Had a very nice stay in a large family unit. Proved to be more spacious than we had thought it was going to be. Small kitchen area but more than adequate for our stay. the pool was big enough for adults to get a bit of a swim yet small enough for you to keep an eye on the kids.... More

We stayed at the Comfort Inn Cascades just after New Years. Even though we booked last minute, our room was very spacious and had all day sun. We were also lucky to be at the end of the balcony which meant we had our own little seating area. The manager was very helpful and friendly and was a welcome smiling... More
