“Great accomodation”
Reviewed February 10, 2013

Stayed here overnight on way to New Plymouth. Greeted by friendly host and directed to an excellent studio apartment. The place was extremely clean and tidy and suited our needs totally. Would certainly stay here again on our next visit to Taupo

We recently stayed a night here and it is a truly fantastic place. Close to everything, modern clean and attractive. In the King suite, they have sliding doors so you can lie in the spa bath and watch telly at the same time!! Niiiiice.
We often stay in motels in Taupo and they are all noisy but we heard absolutely no traffic noise at all !!! BLISS.
Only issue we had was that although the bed felt good when we got into it, it quickly became quite uncomfortable. We love firm beds (have one at home) but this needs a topper pad on it to soften the edges of the inner workings of the mattress. And noone had checked the dates on the mini bar food. But these negative comments are a mere blip on the radar compared to everything else that we loved about the place, and I am sure management will sort those two things out immediately and then it will be unbeatable by anything else in the Great Lake region. :)

Thank you for taking the time to post on TripAdvisor, it is pleasing to read that you enjoyed your stay with us. I appreciate your feedback regarding the mattress toppers, we do indeed have these in the rooms where we have the super king beds, and I will suggest that we get them for the other beds as well. I am sorry to hear that you found an expired item in the snack bar. Please be assured that I have asked our head housekeeper to ensure that all items are checked.
I do hope that we will have the pleasure of welcoming you back to Beechtree Suites again in the future.

I stayed at Beechtree two different nights during a recent visit. Clean room, hot shower, easy parking, and a very helpful and friendly owner. A very convent location. Jackie, the owner, was very helpful with directions and suggested a great place for dinner.

My wife and I stayed here during a visit from Canada in Dec 2012. We were pleasantly surprised at how modern and clean it was. We also had a view of the lake, staying in Room 10.

Nice, modern room with a jetted tub and a view of the lake. Not lakefront, but at least a view from the balcony. Really comfy queen bed and very quiet at night. Handy stores across the street for some groceries, baked goods (a breakfast & lunch type place) and liquor store. Also morning coffee across the street.

Close to town (walk or drive – walk about 10-15 minutes or 2 minute drive) to lots of restaurants etc. A/C, writing desk & free WIFI. Would definitely stay here again. Great motel. Modern, very clean, daily room servicing.

We stayed here for two nights, one on the way down to Martinborough and one on the way home. The room (we had the same one both nights) was clean, comfortable and modern. The staff were friendly and very helpful. The location was great as it was away from the main highway and quiet but still close enough to the city center to walk to the shops and a wide variety of restaurants and cafes.

My wife and I spent 3 nights here on our recent trip to New Zealand. The hotel is clean and the staff is friendly. Walking to downtown is managable, and we did it several times, but I would recommend driving a couple blocks over and parking near the Burger King if you don't want to spend 10-15min on the walk.

We only had one complaint during our stay. We booked late and received a handicap room, so we had a wet-room shower. This was probably just because of having booked late.

Dear Duncan,
I appreciate you taking the time to place a review for us on Trip Advisor. I am sorry that we were not able to offer you one of our Deluxe Spa Studios for your stay which would have meant you would have had a spa bath as well as a shower. Hopefully you will come and visit on your next trip to New Zealand.

We stayed 1 night here and found the motel pleasant enough but a bit dissappointing based on previous reviews. Staff were pleasant and helpful. We were given a ground floor room which was modern but not particularly large. Our bathroom was designed for wheelchair use so we had no bath and certainly no spa bath. The room had its own little courtyard which was pleasant. Not having been to Taupo before we didn't have much of an idea where the motel was located in relation to the main activities in the town. It is located some distance from the lake itself and where the restaurants, bars and shops are all located. You could walk there but it is more convenient to drive. Its distance from the action means its quiet at night.

Dear Richard,
Thank you for posting feedback following your recent stay with us at Beechtree Suites. I appreciate you taking the time to share on TripAdvisor.
As you have mentioned our Queen Shower Studios offer a small private courtyard with outdoor furniture, which are indeed very pleasant and often requested as they are ground floor. Our wet floor showers in this room type are suitable for people with mobility issues as well as for wheelchair access, this room type is often chosen based on the room rate as it is a smaller studio and our most affordable option. It would appear that you may have been expecting a Deluxe Spa or a Lake view Spa Studio, these rooms are a little more expensive and are the majority at our complex, hence the majority of our reviews, however we do provide a full description of our accommodation options on our website.
Thank you again for sharing and I do hope that we will be able to welcome you back again at some stage in the future.
