“Lovely Surprise!”
Reviewed June 9, 2012

My expectations of this Motel were that it would be basic, but I can honestly say that that we were really impressed with everything about this Motel.
It was in a good location, very clean and tidy and the staff were very helpful.
Would defiantly return if in the area.

Room Tip: A high room facing the lake will give fantastic views.

Yes clean and fresh but not a cosy place. Only half the electric blanket worked. One thin duvet on bed with no extra blankets available. Air con not efficient and we spent a cold night here. Doesn't live up to its star rating. Just average.

Taupo is one of those places where there are a plethora of places to choose, especially on a miserable Monday night in the off season. I looked at the Hilton but choose the Beechtree as it had free wifi. I booked it from wotif but it turned out I could have got the same price direct from the motel website.
Rooms were very clean, and exactly as described. Would happily stay here again, and wouldn't bother looking anywhere else.

Easy to find and lots of parking spaces. Female staff/owner was very nice. We upgraded to a bigger room for NZD 20 more. It was a very nice room with a big bathroom with jacuzzi and lots of towels; a huge Sony TV with many satellite channels, free wi-fi.

However, the safe in the room was broken, the heater didn't work well (when turning airco to warm, air was just lukewarm) and no black-out curtains.

Our group had the pleasure of staying here as part of The Taupo ERUPT Festival. We were warmly greeted and our rooms were clean, modern and comfortable.

The highlight was being able to sit in the spa bath and watch the large flat screen TV from the bath. Great idea to have sliding screens put in!!

The Sky remote was a little tough to work out even when following the instructions ( I have sky at home), but such a minor detail everything else was superb...Thanks!!

We stayed 3 nights in a 2 bedroom unit upstairs in the wing next to the reception. Our booking and confirmation by email was professional and on arrival Jacquie was smiling, friendly and helpful. Our room was very clean, modern and spacious with nice extras in the way of toiletries and chocolates on arrival- plenty of tea and coffee. The room was kept warm by a heat pump that was very efficient but if you are a light sleeper the motor noise might bother you and you will have to close the bedroom doors. In summer I should imagine the outdoor seating on the balcony would be very nice. We were able to comfortably walk to the shops - around 10 minutes or less and there is a convenient cafe and grocery store across the road. We did not experience any heavy traffic noise or noise from other guests. We reported 2 faults and they were dealt with promptly and Jacquie was more than willing to help with our other requests. We were very happy with our choice and would go back again just so we can perfect the art of working the TV remote!!- very strange system and out of date instructions I think but no big deal and Jacquie is always on hand!

I went on a roadtrip with my mom when she came from the US to visit; we both thought the Beechtree Motel was fabulous! The woman who worked at the front desk was lovely! Extremely friendly and helpful! She made sure we didn't miss any deal for what we wanted to do (skydiving) or where we wanted to eat. The room itself is really cozy with a small kitchen area and a lot of free tea and coffee. It's a room you want to hangout in, read the newspaper, and drink coffee in the morning. when I think back to Taupo in the future, I'll definitely remember hanging out in the room with pouring rain outside.
