Stayed for two nights 8th & 9th April 2012.
Very friendly welcome, with plenty of local advice from the owner.
Nice pool area and lots of local information leaflets in the bar.
Our room (17 i think) was on the first floor so we had great views from our balcony and even our bed across the lake. Very spacious room, big king size comfy bed, very clean and large bathroom with spa bath and seperate shower.
Not the most luxurious fixtures and fittings but all clean and in good order and overall very comfortable and would definitely stay there again if I was back in Taupo.
20-25 minute walk into town along the edge of the lake.
Rates were competitive with other options within Taupo but in general were more expensive than similar quality elsewhere in NZ.
