The food and service at the place is world class. I dine out regularly and this was definitely the best meal and restaurant experience I have had in New Zealand. The rooms leave a lot to be desired however, they are in need of an overhaul there were hairs through the bathroom and on the pillow cases. Not what you...

That's our 6th time staying at this hotel. We enjoyed our stay at Hilton Taupo. Great location with excellent service. The food is fabulous especially the breakfast with variety of choices. The dinner was delicious though the portions are a bit small for good eaters. We will definitely come back in the future.

We got an upgrade to 'room' 441. One of the best which was actually 5 distinct areas; a separate bedroom, a dining area, a sitting room area, a well stocked kitchen including washer and dryer, and a balcony with a table and 6 chairs. And a beautiful view of the lake and the mountain beyond. Check in was great. We...

We were here only for one night, and because the weather was shocking, it tainted our experience of the whole place. Yes the facilities are top notch, but I found the staff a bit chaotic. Probably due to the fact there was a large contingency of McLarens enthusiasts milling around the front foyer and the driveway, I couldn't get my...

We stayed here for a few nights while exploring Taupo. The hotel is very pricey, but we used Hilton points for the reservation and then were offered an upgrade to a 1 bed apartment for a nominal fee. We gladly accepted and found ourselves in a beautiful and large apartment overlooking the lake and mountains. The hotel is beautiful and...

This hotel was perfect for our family. We booked a one bedroom apartment that was very spacious. The master bed was very comfortable and the kitchen was a good size. The view of the lake was outstanding. Pool area was well maintained and was a great place to relax. Only complaint was that the kitchen could have been better equipped...

Excellent pool. Comfortable room (we had a "small suite"). Good food in restaurant. Plenty of parking spaces. The hotel is far enough away from a busy but quiet road within ten minutes downhill walk of the lake. The shops and eateries are another fifteen minutes level walk.
