“Very enjoyable stay”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 20, 2013

We arrived in Taupo for a 3 day stay and were really grateful for the warm welcome at reception at the Beechtree. We were "given the best suite in the inn" and it was great. Very comfortable, spacious and lovely views.

The location was convenient - the 15 minute walk into the centre of town was no problem and in fact was very enjoyable around the lake.

All in all, a really good place to stay

We reserved this hotel on New Years Eve for a party of 4 people. We had the two room suite and it had the most amazing view of Lake Taupo with a private deck all to ourselves. The quality of the room was great with a wide selection of drinks, small kitchenette, and good quality beds. We had a little trouble operating the TV but managed to fix it after a short time. The hotel is a short walk from town - about 10 minutes so it's best to head into town via car if you're planning on shopping. Would definitely stay here again.

Room Tip: If you have four people, definitely consider the two bedroom apartment. When broken out, it turned o...

You can see quickly why the Beechtree rates so highly - the rooms are clean, modern and comfortable.

The bathroom is enormous with a very generous three person spa. We thought our little courtyard was very pretty (although it's not fully private) and our 2 year old loved the funky trampoline in the grounds!

Service was good and the kitchenette was small but fine for an overnight stay - it's certainly very convenient that there is a supermarket across the road!

Just a minute's drive from the city centre. I'd definitely stay here again if in Taupo.

Due to unforetunate circumstances our lovely VW suffered a bit of an overheat on the way to Taupo from Wellington. Wehad booked the Beachtree Motel through expedia, apparently our first mistake. We contacted the Beachtree and did get hold of Jacqui whilst sitting 7KM North of Hunterville. It was quite aparent at this stage that we were not going to get to Taupoas several effortshad already failed to revive our poor VW. We didn't expect her to try and rent our room out that nightas it was about 6.30pm already - we were prepared to put that down to bad luck. When we queried about the following night we were informed that wehad crossed the 24 hour period by a couple of hours. So now we are stuck in Hunterville, no car, no stay in Taupo and now very limited options for our keenly anticipated romantic getaway. In this case we have found Jacqui slightly inflexibleas it was debatable that she did not manage to fill the room on the second night during this very high demand holiday period. I guessyou can makeyour own minds up...also Jacqui..... it would have been niceas you had promised ifyou could return our call and let us know ifyou had managed to let "our" room. Overall the best part about the experience was that Jacqui answered the phone when we rang, otherwise we didn't think it was all that good or very fair :( We have been put off for sure...

Dear Victoria,
It is very unfortunate that your weekend was spoiled with your car breaking down and I am sorry that we were not able to accommodate you on this occasion. It is important however to point out that because you made your booking through a third party site, in this case Expedia, that it is actually Expedia that you paid and therefore it is Expedia that you needed to cancel through. The cancellation policy is very strict through Expedia and in fact all third party sites, a bit like the airlines, but unfortunately guests often don’t understand how these third party sites operate and they hold the property responsible, which is very unfair. As I advised during our phone conversation, if you would like to put your case forward to Expedia and if they are happy to allow the cancellation then I would have no hesitation in reviewing the situation for you. I hope your VW has now recovered and made it home.

We stayed for 3 nights at this Motel: SUPER!
Quiet, large, clean room. Comfortable king-size beds. Super bathroom with luxery spa-bath.
Well equiped kitchen. Big flat TV-screen. Short distance to town-center. And above all: staffmember Jaqui is the perfect host. Good quality for this price.

Room Tip: Supermarket and butcher just 50 meters away from Motel.

We had two adjoining studios, very comfortable king size beds and a quiet location. The double spa bath was a relaxing feature. An ice maker and the good quality ice bucket were indicators of the high quality of Beechtree. We used the communal bbq to cook dinner one night, the meat was purchased at the local butcher across the road, next to a small supermarket. Would highly recommend.

Had a two night stay in Taupo over New Year at the Beechtree Motel. Staff were really friendly and room was very nice and finished to a high specification. Breakfast was also good. The motel location is a short walk to the beach and into the town centre. Would definitely stay here again if we ever go ack to Taupo.
