First and foremost I want to say the guy at reception was awesome; he was super friendly, told us a bunch of things to do in Taupo, and gave us a bunch of coupons for local events as soon as we checked in. The hotel itself is a little ways away from the lake, maybe a 5 minute drive, but it’s in a quiet location which was nice. The hotel itself is nice, clean, and modern but it is in DESPERATE need of decoration; the hotel is extremely bland. However, the price is right here and I guess the money saved by not wasting money on elaborate décor has been passed to the customer which is a worthwhile trade off. Again, I would recommend staying here simply for the guy at reception because he recommended a bunch of stuff to do, especially because we were only there for a night and on a tight schedule.
