This is a great place to stay, clean, walking distance (5 minutes) to town, off street parking, warm in winter and friendly hosts, top notch, and reasonably priced too so there isn't anything negative you could possibly say about the Chevron. We'll stay there again for sure next time we're in Taupo

We stayed for a few nights at this motel in July 2015 - GREAT location - very easy walk to the cafes etc. Just around the corner from the RSA and Cosmopolitan Clubs. Clean, tidy and comfortable. Hosts were lovely. Would definitely recommend (in fact already have!). Great view of the mountains too!!!

This was our second time staying, we always fine it nice and clean with everything you want for a comfortable night stay, with good parking right outside the room. Your host Allan & Glenys are always friendly & handy if you need anything, but we have found there is everything in the room. It was romantic for us on this... More

Lovely hosts always friendly, motel always clean, warm and everything you need whether just one night or more. My 6Ft 2 son loved the queen sized bed and there was plenty of comfort for his 5 ft Mum in the single. After having 5 nights in Auckland with a sick child this motel felt like the comfort of home during... More

Once again on our way to visit family at Masterton, we stopped at the Chevron overnight and as before we found it very worthy of good words of praise. Clean tidy and very welcoming as well as being close (walking distance) to the main shopping area e.t.c. Definitely recommend. We stayed there on the way back to Auckland as well.... More

We were welcomed to this motel, and got the only room available, and it was in a handy location within walking distance to the CBD and restaurants. However, the standard of maintenance was poor. A chair nearly broke, and the lights blew a fuse when we turned them on. The oven door would not close, so cooking was not an... More

When you look up trip adviser to check out this motel the photos don't do it justice, its much nicer. They are currently upgrading each room. Friendly owners. They were happy when we gave them feed back about uploading new photos.
