Fabulous spot for an overnight stop on the way south. Lovely to wake in the morning to lake views. Fantastic value for a family of five, especially when booking last minute. Friendly, welcoming service. Would highly recommend and will definitely stay again.

A great motel. We stayed in the Lakeview House. It was wonderfully warm and comfortable (while cold, wet and miserable outside) and the super-large and well appointed lounge was great for our family (7 adults plus grandchild) getting together. Everything needed for a break away including a dishwasher. Also the house has its own laundry with washing machine etc.

I stayed here as I was travelling with the family dog and this motel is dog-friendly. Reception.was friendly and informative. All the basics are covered in the motel room. Very helpful with travel directions when the Desert Rd was shut due to snow.

We thought this motel was very good value as there were four of us and we basically had a house at the front of the motel which looked over the lake. Reception were very friendly and went out of there way to accommodate us. Our rooms were clean and neat and would thoroughly recommend this motel if you are passing... More

We enjoyed our stay at Accent on Taupo. The room was basic but had everything we needed, especially appreciated the electric heating pad for the bed! Service was friendly and polite. The motel isn't especially close to town but only a 5 minute drive from the city centre, and was very close to the lake.

Very friendly reception, most welcoming. Lack of professionalism, given wrong key and had to ask for a key so we could lock the back door. No flannels or towels, had to ask again. No dish cloth or tea towels so couldn't wash cups we used and staff did not do them in the morning. Beds were only made by staff... More

We enjoyed our overnight stay in the room, it was nice and clean, had everything we needed, run by a very welcoming and helpful couple. Our son loved the big trampoline and child friendly atmosphere. The bathroom was a little on the small side but very clean and adequate and the 'lake view' was a bit disapointing.

Very recent new owners have brought a whole new perspective to this wonderful place just on the outskirts of central Taupo. Very friendly owners who went out of their way to be helpful. Stayed in the Cottage (great wood burner to heat it up on a freezing mid-winter weekend), kept our bikes in the garage and generally had a wonderful... More

We stayed here for two nights and loved it. It is clean, tidy and comfy. The owners are warm, friendly and so welcoming! Great location with beautiful Lake Taupo just across the road and the shops not far away. Would definitely stay here again and recommend to others.

The cottage was very cosy with the open fire. The new owners are welcoming and efficient and I loved that I could stay somewhere nice with my children and dog. Plus the dog park at the back was a great bonus - and having the lake across the road made for a lovely stay. Highly recommend.
