We had a studio room for a night. Everything we needed was provided, and the room was comfortable. Friendly staff. The wifi didn't work at all, which was a pain, but they said we could have asked them to reboot it. Easy walk to lake and shops. Very central. I would certainly stay there again.

This Motel did not hesitate to allow us to bring our cat & dog, the staff were amazing, so friendly, nothing was to much trouble, the accomodation was out of this world, had all 50 plus Sky Channels, close to the city.

We were touring around and three of us stayed one night here. It was very fine.The location was very central to everything. Water was a short walk and the motel is off of the main highway which can be busy and loud. Great cooking facilities.

This was the only motel we could find that would accomodate our small dog and cat. Right from time of booking they were super friendly and upon our late evening arrival they had our heater on and the electric blankets on our beds turned on. The units were fully equipped with everything we needed and more and the beds were... More

What a fabulous motel - very clean & tidy with up-todate decore & facilities. Two very comfortable chairs, a heat pump, even a water cooler, & superb bedding. We stayed last Monday night & thoroughly recommend Birchlands for their hospitality, & convenience to the CBD & lake front.

It was hard to find a motel in Taupo that would allow my show cat to stay with me, but Birchlands had no issues. Sisi from Birchlands contacted me earlier in the week to confirm what time I would arrive, and then texted me on the day to say she would be away from the property for a short time,... More
