We stayed here while in Taupo for a fishing trip - one of their two bedroom units. It's very quiet and comfortable, and within walking distance of town for restaurants etc. We've stayed here before and we can recommend it.

Decided to treat myself to a spa room and was very happy I did . The room was very spacious with a queen and single bed. There was a balcony with views to the north over the town. The spa was set back in the corner of the room which allowed for a view while you soaked. The other room... More

Booked a room with spa pool after reading the other reviews here. Pretty disappointed from our stay. Firstly, the bins and blanket were obviously old and needed replacing. There's a notice saying not to have the spa on after 10pm, so if you were thinking of a good late night relaxing session, it'll have to be before 10pm. The walls... More

A last minute decision to have a girls weekend away in Taupo - shopping and a massage and we stayed at the Lake Taupo Motor Inn. Our apartment was very nice - 2 large bedrooms and week laid out with bathroom in between. We didn't spend much time in the room but it was very comfortable. Our only issue was... More

My husband and I stayed here for 2 nights and we were very pleased with our stay. It was very comfortable and the lady at reception was lovely! The breakfast (cooked and continental options) each morning was a lovely touch.

We stayed here recently in one of the spa suites. The room was lovely and clean. Breakfast brought to the room was yummy! The only negative thing really was the noise. We could hear everything in the rooms next to us. The lady at the desk when we arrived and when we checked out was really friendly and helpful.

Have stayed at Lake Taupō Motor Inn on three separate occasions now, and it's always a great place to stop for a night or two. Its convenient location near the Lake and local shops, bars and restaurants make it an easy go-to spot, and it's competitively priced with all the stuff you'll need in the rooms. Staff are always warm... More

Booked two rooms for late March/early April 2016. One room was a spa room, the other was a two bedroom suite. The rooms were reasonably spacious and comfortable, reasonably quiet. Brekky was ok. Undercover parking good. Short walk to the restaurants, lake and shops. Well managed. Would recommend.

Was a very enjoyable night in Taupo; genuinely welcoming staff at the Lake Taupo Motor Inn. The room was spacious and well appointed; bed was comfortable for a good sleep also. Breakfast in the morning was freshly cooked and tasty. A wee gem of a place to stay in Taupo indeed!
