The motel is located on the east bank of Lake Taupo, right near a hot spring that makes the swimming comfortable. But the rooms in the suites are tiny (we had to stand on the bed to close one bedroom door), the units are clustered on top of pools and spas, and the management is on the verge of being hostile. The only help we got was from a man who was chatting with the desk clerk and who cheerfully told us he didn't work there.
We arrived along with a group of men that had been in a two day golf tournament and were partying joyously in their units and the pools. Thankfully they were considerately quiet on their late return from dinner, but it could have been ugly if they weren't as the units are so crammed in. And only the few on the water get a view.
Be sure you get everything you want from your car early! The reception area is closed - and locked - after hours, making it a long dark walk to get to the front parking lot.
