We were in a quandary after booking at a horrific place a few km away. Absolute was something we found via driving by, and the only place with a sauna, heated pool and hot water spa --- and free wifi. Pleasantly surprised to find a washing machine and drier on-site. Rates were totally reasonable, and we have a lovely lake...

The owners were very nice people and the room was very neat and tidy. Little lacking in personality but, very much like a typical older style motel room. Location was superb for walking into town. Not much room in the car park, we had to wait a while for some to move their car out of the way to leave....

We arrived to a warm welcome. This place is really handy to the shopping centre and just down the road is just a short stroll to some very good restaurants and bars. Right across the road from the stunning lake. Really quiet at night. Will definatley come back.

This place is ideal for all and sundry to stay, location as it has been widely recommended is its appeal. It suited my family's budget and as we only stayed 1night and wanted to get a snapshot of Taupo surrounds, the town and much talked about eateries. The Absolute offers convenience plus to all aforementioned, though we had a room...

We my wife and I stayed in room number 1 which is a studio setup. The room was overall clean and maintained well. The only issue for me was that I believe the owner(s) and their kids were residing right above our room and our room wasn't sounds proof. So the noise was continuous as well as early morning before...

Just the loveliest motel. Such great value for money. Very clean and comfortable. The service was excellent as we arrived after closing time of their office but he still opened up for us so we really appreciated that. Lovely warm unit and very handy position. The owner was also very helpful as we had a trailer on and showed where...

We were stopping in Taupo for 2 nights on route to Auckland, and liked the look of the complex so called in to check availability of a room. We had a lovely room with view of the lake right across the road. Exceptionally helpful and friendly staff.
