Had a great stay at this motel in Taupo for an overnight on the way down the North Island. Off the main road it is quiet and manager stayed up late till we'd arrived from Auckland. Heating had been turned on in the room and easily slept the 5 travellers. Well equipped with kitchenette, spare towels and plenty of space.... More

This motel was ideal for our purpose.Dog friendly, clean and close to city centre. The host made it easy for us, as there are limited units available for pets. This is appropriate for all parties. We will be happy to return and recommend it to other people who choose to take their pets with them.

It was great being able to take our little dog with us. Unfortunately the heater kept blowing a fuse and going off. We approached the owner but he didn't seem to believe us. Had to get up in the night to reset the fuse as we awoke from the cold.

Thanks again for your second review, just on a different site. I hope you got the response I gave to the first review. Anyone reading the review please note, there was a problem with the heater tripping the fuse, it has now been fixed. I didn't realise the electrician had not hooked the heater into the correct amperage. It is... More

We have used the Adelphi Motel on numerous occasions, always found it to be clean comfortable & welcoming. Additionally it is pet friendly which has been of great help to us. The manager is certainly the right man in the right job.

We were welcomed to the motel by one of the owners, Paul, who was friendly, welcoming and helpful. There was room to park the car right outside our unit so that was convenient. We'd booked a larger unit than we needed as that was all that was available at the time and it was very well equipped and comfortable, with... More

This was not a modern day Hotel/Motel but it served our purpose and the unit was clean and comfortable. The manager, Paul, was good enough to give us some suggestions as to where to visit, considering the short time that we were going to be staying there.

We arrived after a longer than usual trip from Wellington due to a fatal accident on Route 1. The Adelphi isn't a pretty motel from the outside but it certainly has everything you need for a large family on a budget. Location is perfect, just a few blocks from the water and dining options. The unit we stayed in was... More

We stayed in the studio with balcony, the only one as all the others are ground floor. It meant we had a (limited) lake view and lovely breakfast sunshine. Studio was spacious and had clearly been recently updated. New furnishings and very comfortable king size bed. The kitchen and bathroom were separate (exceptional to have the kitchen separate in a...
