“Great choice!”
Reviewed July 7, 2013

We stayed here for 3 nights while we explored the area, and it was a great spot! Perfectly clean and modern with a little kitchenette that met all our needs. Just a few blocks away from all the action in central Taupo, and directly across the street from one of the best restaurants in Taupo -- Brantry. They even gave us a free glass of wine since we were recommended by Beechtree!

Not a great view of the lake, but it's only a block or two from the lake. Really lovely motel that felt more like our own apartment!!

Room Tip: The upstairs rooms have a better view....

I travel all over the world (on business) and I would rate this small NZ motel as one of the best I have ever stayed in ....... anywhere in the world !
It doesn't really have a view but is close enough to the Lakefront to take an easy stroll.
Jacqui & Barry will treat you as friends. We have used their motel as a showroom ~ they provide all the bits and pieces for selling clothing ranges ~ and have stayed for the odd "quiet night".
Most motels we have stayed in, have that "motel smell". You know ..... when you just know that "product" has been used to mask some unpleasant event !
Not so, Beechtree. It smells as if you are the first to stay in the room. They are all spotlessly clean.
And one of the nicest surprises ? ........... the price.
I think extreme value

Room Tip: Every room I have stayed in, is just great. Perhaps (if you like early morning sun) you would go for...

Recently our family of four spent 2 nights and 3 days exploring gorgeous Taupo. Beechtree Suites was the perfect home for us during our stay. Centrally located, just a few blocks easy stroll to Taupo town centre, restaurants, shops and harbour. Convenience store directly across the road made life very easy also. Our 2 bedroom apartment was modern and beautifully presented, extremely clean with gorgeous big fluffy towels and a chocolate to greet each of us on our bed added a special touch. Kitchen was well stocked with everything needed to make our stay comfortable. The staff were extremely helpful and friendly. I highly recommend Beechtree to anyone looking to stay in Taupo and we most definitely would stay there again without any hesitation at all.

Our original booking was upgraded when Jacqui first confirmed our request. That was a lovely surprise but when we walked into our room, there was wine, chocolates and a card, compliments of the staff. Our stay was perfect. The room was so clean and immaculate. The spa bath, awesome, the bed very comfortable and loads of TV channels. Views of the lake and mountains were great. We enjoyed our walks into town for shopping and dining. Free WiFi was handy. Shortbread biscuits left each day along with chocolates was very appreciated. We had no issues with leaving our car in secure parking and we will be doing the same with our Harley Davidson motorbike soon. Violet even helped us to take our bags down to the car when we were leaving. Very helpful, friendly staff. One of the best motels we have stayed in and we have no hesitation in returning.

Room Tip: The top suites facing south have a great view of the mountains and lake Taupo.

I did not want to leave the Beechtree, it is a sensational place to stay.
This was my second stay and both stays I felt welcomed on arrival, looked after throughout my stay and really reluctant to leave.
Immaculate facilities, a full kitchen, complimentary ground coffee and bickies, chocolates on the pillows...felt like a million dollar guest!
The Beechtree is centrally located, has super friendly hosts who are only too happy to help at any time, plus free WiFi and my absolute favourite: the AMAZING DOUBLE SPA BATHS...the best accommodation I have experienced in Taupo, ever!

Previous Beechtree Suite reviews indicated great value with clean and comfortable rooms. We can confirm this is true! Staff approachable and helpful. Nicely appointed rooms with good amenities. Spa bath fantastic after a hard day at the cafes! Booked No view King room, the lake only a 3 min walk away and town center took me 12 mins.

Room Tip: Lake view may be obscured by adjoining property roof lines
