We encountered some lovely staff, super clean room. The kitchen and bathroom were both clean and tidy, the kids loved the stay and the pools especially were a highlight - especially when the colourful lights came on.

Great spot for kids. Had a beautiful view of the lake, the breakfasts were delicious and the spa pools are perfect for kids and the grown-ups. Great location, great value for money. Will definitely come back again.

Absolutely gorgeous stay with our two little girls in a motel ensuite. Girls loved the bunk beds, jumping pillow and playground. Mom & Dad loved all the amenities too! Nice to have the kids in their own space and to get up in the morning and make a coffee / watch tv. We fell in love with the hot water pools and spent 3 hours there. What a treat and so great just walking back to our cabin. We had a continental breakfast the next day before departing and was great value for money. We will definitely come back and highly recommend to anyone with families! You could tell the facility is very well maintained and up to date with all of its amenities - it shows!!

My 11 year old daughter and I thoroughly enjoyed staying at Hotel DeBretts. The cabin was perfect and all we needed. The shared facilities and the kids playing area were great and the pools were the icing on the cake.

We decided to extend our stay in taupo one extra night but as our hotel was full we decided to pop in here to see accomodation. We ended up getting a cabin with kitchen facilities without the bathroom as we liked the cabin better. Was very modern (cabin 34) had good facilites, heat pump nice and modern also had a nice deck where we could sit and watch our child on playground nearby. Bathroom/shower/toilet facilities were close to our cabin but a bit suprised they were unisex, although there was no problems, it was a bit odd at first. The access to the bathroom facilities was via a keypad on the door. The facilities were awesome, my daughter especially loved the huge bouncy pillow to play on, this also had sand around it for kids to play in. The pools were great although one of the slides wasnt working, loved the bubble bed! We recieved a discount for the de brett pools which made it much cheaper, was well worth money as they allowed us to use pools on the discounted rate prior to check in that day so we spent morning at pools then checked in at 2pm then back to pools later in the evening til closing. Was such a great stay that we have booked again.
