I've given them a 4/5 because, although it looks very dated from the outside, it was really very good inside. The rooms were well appointed and spacious. My only complaint was the very small shower ... I'm only 170cm and struggled in there ... anyway. Conference facilities were first class as were the staff supporting this area. The restaurant was...

Wonderful Location. Clean, spacious rooms. The Hotel is located right in front of the great Taupo Lake and offers beautiful views of the lake from the room (if you get one in front) . Rooms were tidy, clean and the Staff was really helpful to accommodate to our needs.

Spent three nights here and was impressed with the clean quiet room that has a great view of the lake and the mountains. The Suncourt is close enough to to the main restaurants and bars that you can walk every where. The staff where very friendly and accommodating which made the stay so much better.

We stayed here for the second time to compete in the half marathon. We found the reception staff very friendly and accommodating to everything we needed. The room was clean and nice and warm. Shower is a little small but otherwise a great place to stay at a very reasonable price.

This is a very comfortable and warm property. Views looking out to the lake are awesome. Staff friendly. Park your car up for your stay and the shops are right there. Only thing that would be good is to have a microwave in the units.

Centrally located close to all amenities the Suncourt offers reasonably priced rooms with great views over the lake. My room was upstairs and reasonably spacious with a nice balcony . Despite being in good condition I feel the bathrooms are close to an update with very basic basins and small corner showers. Staff are welcoming and professional.

It was a good stay as we had a plan to stay in rotorua but as it was long weekend nothing was available so we reached taupo at 3am in morning and luckily we got 2 rooms which were really nice and tidy with a beautiful view. Overall we enjoyed our one night stay. Will recommend and come back.
