We drove to Taupo without accommodation and rang en route from Hamilton after seeing it in a Guide.
We had a Room facing the side street, king bed, very comfortable and clean room. Parking at door. Our view consisted of two concrete trucks parked on the grass outside the Motel. Thankfully we didn't hear them leave.
The lady in the Office was helpful and kindly showed us where other eating places were.
Only one night in Taupo and only one small complaint, didn't like large bathroom windows facing carparking area where other guests were sitting having a drink after dark. Felt a blind in there would have been appropriate at night. Otherwise bathroom large with shower, no spa or bath.
However, would happily recommend the Motel to others.
