I'm so glad I chose this motel! My wife and I enjoyed a clean, well-organized, simple, and comfortable motel until. We were delighted with the comfortable bed and the heat pump. The manageress is such a friendly and helpful person, too. It's been great value for money and I'd recommend it to anybody.

Don't let view from the front of the model misled your judgement. Might look old from the outside but in the inside, the motel looks newly refurbished. It is also very equipped, comes with full cooking amenities that includes an oven and water dispenser. Bathroom has very comforting and relaxing shower. The free wifi provided, the best that I had...

Not only was the manager one of the most helpful, informative, friendly and genuine that I'd come across, the room, beds, kitchen, bathroom and WIFI was fantastic! I would highly recommend staying here. Great value for money. It's also quiet, clean, and laundry can be privately done at a price. I wish all motels and managers were a replica.

My husband and I were satisfied with our stay. The location was great. Very close to everything - lake, shops, restaurants, town and to the tourist spots. Very quiet and comfortable. Everything we needed (and not needed) is there. On top of these, Sisi was the awesome. Will stay here again.

We have travelled down from Auckland staying in quite a few motels and Birchlands was our favourite by far. Although may look a little small and weathered it was the little extras that made the difference. Nice comfy bed, good pillows, cooking facilities, free WiFi, foxtel and even electric blankets. Our host was friendly and had deals with local companies.... More

We've stayed at Birchlands before. It has become our favourite stay in Taupo This time we encountered the new manager, Sisi. What a Treasure! Still the same good price, cleanliness and central location (without the traffic noise one might get if right on water front) and Sisi just added her personal charm. Thank you Sisi for an enjoyable and restful... More

My husband and I were thoroughly impressed with our accommodation. The room was small-ish, but had absolutely everything we needed (plus more). The beds were comfortable, kitchen was beautifully stocked (the oven worked brilliantly, which is usually unheard of in a motel), and the shower was fantastic. My kids slept well, which is always a good sign. I was also... More

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.
