We stayed at the Comfort Inn this week for 3 days during the school holidays. It was myself and my three kids (8, 7, and 5 years old). We stayed in Room 2 which was just one back from the lake and awesome. It was super clean, modern and had a really nice feel. Great showers. It had a queen... More

Emergency trip north for family bereavement with elderly mum. Paul was wonderful and enabled closeness in separate studios for us. Wifi worked perfectly and the units were spotlessly clean and the bed comfy and the heating superb. Very happy to recommend. Even offered a free auckland herald weekend paper on our departure, thanks so much for helping ease a sad... More

Grabbed a 2 night Grab one deal. Very friendly hosts and great unit. The swimming pool and spa were well used and having 2 bedrooms was a bonus with a 6 year old early riser. Breakfast was included in the tariff which was a bonus. Very handy location, would stay again.

We (two adults and one six year old) stayed at the Cascades over the last weekend. Room was very good and spotlessly clean. The staff were excellent and extremely helpful. The location is quiet and there was plenty for our six year old to do. Definitely enjoyed our stay and would recommend this motel as good value for money.

Had a great stay over Easter/term break with our kids and dog. Friendly staff, clean room, and basic kitchenette is really convenient. Location is super central to downtown and sightseeing outside of Taupo. Would definitely stay here again.

We had Grab One Vouchers and made a booking for 4 nights. We were welcomed warmly and the room was extremely clean and kept that way throughout our stay. The kitchen was basic but adequate and the bed very comfortable. All staff were very friendly and helpful. We thoroughly enjoyed our stay and would certainly stay there again.

We arrived in Taupo after a days driving with no accommodation booked, not knowing the next day the Ironman was been held there of course everywhere was booked out. I stopped at the Comfort Inn to see if he could give us an idea where we might get somewhere to stay. The owner tried ringing round a bunch of places... More

We arrived on our motor bikes dripping wet..and pretty codl,. to be greeted by the manager, with a smile and a question; would you like to book the spa? A man on top of things, way to go. After signing in and welcomed by the cat we (four ) of us found our accommodation. Plenty of space, and good heaters.... More

Stayed here for 1 night during a trip around New Zealand. The owners gave us a very friendly welcome. The room was very big with a double height ceiling which was initially a bit cold but heated up quickly. The hotel isn't in the middle of the town but being on the lakeside of the road it was nice to... More
