We had a 2 bedrooms, nice spacious room with balcony. Everything was clean and had a little kitchen. Kids love the playground and the pool. Service was good, there is a restaurant but we haven’t tried.

Really enjoyed our stay at Suncourt Hotel, friendly staff at the desk. The room was really nice and spacious for 4 people and was very clean and well presented. The hotel is really close to the main shops of Taupo as well as the easy access to the lake. We LOVED the pressure of the shower was amazing but would have liked body wash included in the shower as there is shampoo and hand wash. But overall we all enjoyed our stay, would definitely return and would recommend.

My main disappointment with my room was that there were absolutely no toiletries. I did not complain or ask for any as there was no spot where they obviously would have been. Fortunately I by chance had some with me. The sliding door to the wee deck looking out to the lake was locked. There were no instructions on how to open it. A coffee out there watching the sun rise would have been lovely. Not only were there no toiletries but I was phoned by someone from the hotel accusing me of having taken them with me. I assured them that I had not as there weren’t any there to start with. I was told they would check it out and come back to me. I’m still waiting for the apology. Shame because I would have gone back again and recommended them but I cannot recommend a place that contacts their guests with random accusations over disposable toiletries that I would have paid for in my not so cheap accommodation.

We are sorry to find out via email and this review that there were no toiletries in your room.  This is unusual and if we had known we would have delivered toiletries to your room immediately.  We appreciate this must have been an inconvenience for you.  Our reception team followed our process by contacting the guest when these products are not in the room on departure (which are part of our sustainability initiative, where these bottles are refilled after each departure).  Some guests take these refillable bottles unknowingly thinking they are complimentary.  In your situation our receptionist checked with you and listened to your explanation and there has been no charge against your reservation.

Friendly staff on check in; we had a trainee who was under the supervision of someone else, but he was friendly and courteous. The room was clean, with some basic cups and glasses, but not much in the way of other facilities. The outside area was nice with comfortable seaing to watch people moving around as it was a public holiday and quite busy. Noisy neighbours with a young child spoilt this trip for us as they did very little to consider all of the other guests staying at the hotel.

Owner deducted extra money from my account after checkout making false statements, I don't recommend this place, you will end-up paying more than they say upfront, avoid this place so you don't get a bad experience.
