Perfect spot to soak your problems away! Offers private rooms included on price. Nice spa pools with perfect temperature. Definitely a place for families! Kids were going crazy there, having the time of their lives. Awesome night lights! Not many showers though.

Hi abonodera, Thank you for taking the time to post your feedback. We are glad you enjoyed your time at the pools. It's great that you have found there could be more showers because we have added a new shower to the pools complex just last week and will be opening it in the next few days :) Kind regards,...

Such a great place to stay with family. Rooms are exceptionally clean, fresh and comfortable. Have stayed in 2brm unit twice now and they are warm and cosy, have everything you need and are good value. Quiet setting, obviously great for youngsters and groups meeting up etc. It will continue to be a preferred motel option for us.

Just stayed here for 5 nights over the school holidays. Two bedrooms make it a good set up for a family. Huge tv that the kids loved and comfortable couches. Great kitchen and we cooked most nights. Fantastic views over the lake and sunsets. Private. Would definitely recommend. Some road noise but nothing too bad.

Given the price, having a private room for 45 minutes and then access to the hot pools was a good deal. It was crowded but the water was great and didn't seem as filtered as I've experienced in places like Calistoga, which is great because I wanted something authentic. Right as we were leaving, it was getting dark and the... More

Great powered site, friendly staff, expensive site compared to rest of the country but not compared to others in Taupo. Kitchen lovely, bathrooms tired but in the process of being renovated. Great areas for kids of all ages, and geothermal pools are an added bonus.

Great place to pull up a campervan. Over 14 year olds can goto hot swimming pool by themselves. Not too crowded in winter. Shower block run-down but promises to be upgraded later in 2016. Hilton hotel next door for an intimate dinner. Overall well worth the visit. We came for one night and stayed for four nights. Lots to do... More
