The accommodation was immaculate! The service and food was excellent. Maxson was great to deal with and went above and beyond in ensuring every detail for the wedding was PERFECT! Great communication and excellent service on the day. Location on the lakefont was perfect for photos and a great view when seated for dinner. 5 Stars! APRIL 2015

Lovely location, welcoming and helpful staff. A great walk along the lake shore to the town took about 20 minutes, the main eating and shopping area about 30 minutes walk. Steam rising from the lake - amazing! Breakfast buffet "deal" price offered - very good choices and plenty of food. Help from staff regarding finding a pharmacy for sandfly bites!... More

Pros: Location, staff, shower, free wifi (limited but sufficient if careful). Cons: BED, key lock doors and the smallest safe that I have ever seen. Bed was horrible. Either overly soft or old. The rest of the room was fine.

We stayed here for our anniversary in the middle of winter. The hotel was in a great location right on the lake and the view was beautiful. The room itself was fine for the night but could do with an update as it was very old school. The bathroom in particular was a bad layout and the shower behind the... More

Whilst I was impressed with the location, the lake views and the friendly staff, I was not so happy with the room. The bed mattress was so uncomfortable that I had back pains the next day, and my husband said he hadn't slept that well on it either. The tea & coffee area had no toaster, no bowls or dessert...

A good place to relax during the weekend with your partner or family. Astonishing views of the Lake Taupo. Amazing continental breakfast (Which luckly for us, was included in the booking price). They also have a grotto spa pool which worth trying.
