This was a cosy place to stay with friends, great view across lake to mountains which were snow capped, easy access to shopping centre and eateries. Everything in reach, heating, electric blankets and kitchen facilities were appreciated.

Loved this motel/conference centre. I thoroughly concur with previous good reviews. Close (walking distance) into Taupo for shopping restaurants, bars. Would have liked to ranked a little higher than 4 - closer to 5. Very nice reception area. Would definitely recommend this establishment and be very happy to stay here again. As per other reviews the kitchen area is tiny... More

I really liked this motel/hotel, it had the good things that a motel has like a mini kitchenette and parking near the room and also had the feel of a really good hotel room with quality fittings, great bed, super bathroom, fantastic balcony and picture windows overlooking the lake. Really good location meant we could walk into town for meals... More

This place is more like a motor inn than a hotel. The rooms we stayed in are in a concrete block strip away from the administration and restaurant block. The location is great with lake views and walking distance to town. There is free car parking outside the rooms. The rooms are very comfortable. There's a very nice and comfy... More

Thanks for the feedback on the comfy beds, we are halfway through our 2014 bed upgrade program so it's great to hear the positive feedback. We have also started upgrading the showers/bathrooms throughout the hotel beginning in our studio rooms and progressing throughout all room types over the next few years.

I have stayed here three times. The rooms have been thoroughly renovated (new TVs, curtains, bedding, furniture, free wifi etc) and are pleasing to be in. The location is close to the lake and an easy walk to town. Our upstairs lakefront unit was particularly appealing with uninterrupted views. The pool and trampoline are good for kids.

Enjoyed staying here for a recent conference - perfect location and facilities. The rooms were particularly good as we arrived in the evening and awoke to a stunning view of the lake and mountains covered in snow.

We scored a 3 bedroom cottage at the back of the property- these have been recently added to the property by the looks of them- very well appointed and comfortable with free wifi .

Great stay, after booking realised I wasn't sure if our trailer would fit and whether a very late book in would be a problem. I was very quickly replied to by Rochelle from reservations that this was all fine . We arrived later that expected but were given our key happily and pleasantly surprised that the room was warmed nicely... More

We have ample free car parking space at Suncourt perfect for those guests that have trailers, boats etc. Our reception team finish at 11pm however we do have nightporter's onsite throughout the night so a late check-in is never a problem. Will pass on your positive feedback to Rochelle and look forward to your next visit. More

We are stay one night in Suncourt hotel, room is clean & spacious, convenient, and easy to find everything. Only thing we feel bathroom is a little bit cold when it's in the winter, not heating. But we still enjoy for this short stay. We sure will stay again.

We stayed at Suncourt Hotel in the three bedroom apartment for one night on 25th July. It was extremely clean and the beds were super comfortable. It was lovely opening our room to find the lights on and the heat pump going. We would definitely stay here again!
