A re-visit to this motel. As owners of vintage cars it is wonderful to have them under cover right outside our rooms. We would always come here and appreciated a group out-of-high-season discount. This is a beautifully presented motel. Immaculate, attractive, friendly, well-priced for its high standard. There is a little eating place across the road and a high-class restaurant (name forgotten) short walk away in the same street. You can walk to town or it is a 2 minute drive. 2 minutes to the lake edge. Thank you for looking after us again. Vintage Austin Register of NZ.

We spent a night in a King Studio with Mountain View. It was modern, spacious, quiet, clean and we enjoyed the spa bath. We had a deck and good views of the lake and mountains from the room...and yes, we did look over roof tops..but really..if you want spectacular views stay on the lake front and endure the noise or pay through the nose somewhere else.

The management was helpful and friendly and gave good options for dinner destinations. I'll stay again soon and not bother to try anywhere else.

Room Tip: pay a bit more and stay in the king studio with mountain view

We regularly stay in Taupo while travelling between Wellington and Auckland and have tried many motels. The Beechtree (also known as The Miro) is the best. Great location, immaculately clean, fantastic beds, quality furnishings and the spa bath just makes it perfect. Dinner at Plateau, watch the rugby from the spa bath, good sleep, reasonable cooked breakfast. Bliss.

After a long week in Auckland, I was planning to drive back home to Wellington but decided to rest up in Taupo for the night instead.... and after staying at the Beechtree Motel I'm glad I did! Having stayed in Taupo many times over the past 15 years, I decided on a whim to try this hotel instead of the normal "Lake Front" Motels I stay haved stayed at.

If you like relaxing in a huge spa bath while watching your choice of over 50 Sky TV channels on a 40" TV, then you will love the rooms at Beechtree Motel! The bed was very comfy and the rooms were spotlessly clean. I will be back!

Jacqui was working on reception the day I arrived and she was fantastic to deal with, a warm welcome goes a long way.

Picked this overnight stay from Trip Advisor, which might have been a little too upbeat, although still a great stay.
Rooms slightly small, and the lake and mountain view, whilst accurate, is streching it slightly as you are looking over several roofs to see it.
I don't mean to sound harsh though, as this is a really nice place, very clean and tidy, with everything you need and amazingly comfortable bed. Maybe 200m to the shore and an easy walk to CBD. Recommended.

We stayed at Beechtree for 4 nights over Xmas and new year 2011/12. The rooms were spacious, clean and well appointed, especially for what we paid, which we thought was very reasonable. The location is good - slightly away from the very centre of Taupo, meaning it's nice and quiet, but only about 5 minutes to walk in. The best aspect, without doubt, was the staff. The hoteliers were easily the most friendly and helpful I've experienced. They know the local area extremely well, and every recommendation they made for activities and restaurants was perfect. The next time we visit Taupo, this is where we will stay - there's no point even bothering to look elsewhere! Highly recommended.
