We were welcomed warmly and found the room to be lovely and the bathroom ok. The bed was one of those beds that you can feel every move the other person makes so we had an uncomfortable night's sleep. However that was the only negative experience about our one night stay and it certainly didn't spoil our time there. What a fantastic area! Would stay longer and explore more next time. Lovely breakfast too at the motel.

Excellent place to stay, comfortable and the host was pleasant to deal with..even when woken up at 12am!
Cleaning staff were also lovely.
Would happily recommend Beechtree Suites and will be using them again in future.
Was a pleasant place to stay that allowed me to focus on the task at hand, the reason for my stay.
+ Free Wifi was a bonus.
Thank you.

Room Tip: If you are a smoker opt for a room with a deck.

I stayed at the Beechtree for a fortnight with collegues whilst in Taupo for work, and found it a fantastic place to stay. Jacqui (the Manager) ran around after us and made it easy to focus solely on work. Washing was done, the rooms were always immaculate and there was a plentiful supply of coffee. The rooms were sizeable so that strategy meetings could be done over dinner. The entire complex was modern, clearly well maintain and extremely confortable. I'll be there again, but next time with my family for a break.

We came to Taupo for the Erupt Arts Festival and stayed in the family suite in the family room which can easily fit a family of four (even five with some inventive use of the sofa as in our case). The rooms were separated by the kitchen/dining/living area and all areas were very clean and spacious. Being Taupo it can get pretty cold at night which was no issue as there was a good heat pump. Also a decent spa bath & shower in a generous size bathroom was put to good use.

The fully equipped kitchen was also very appreciated and we tended to use just about everything during our 3 night stay.
Chocolates on the bed were a lovely touch and management were very friendly and helpful to deal with.

The Motel is well situated, close enough for a 10 minute stroll into the town centre, 5 minutes to the lake front or a short drive to any of the main attractions. Parking was available undercover which was another plus.


All in all this was a great experience and we would certainly consider returning for future stays.

Room Tip: Our room was No.7 which had seperate bedrooms and great morning sun.

We had a great stay at the Beechtree Suites. All the staff were very friendly and Jacqui and Baz the managers were very helpful in recommending places for us to visit. The room we stayed in was very comfortable and spotlessly clean. You couldn't ask for more. The gardens were very well kept and the room had a lovely patio. We would definitely recommend a stay here.

This place was ok for a quick overnighter or business trip but fell short of being good tourist accommodation. A handful of simple and basic faults tarnished our visit. Some door knob falling off, light bulbs were blown, the TV was overly complex and not connecting easily to the satellite facility, condiments were not updated properly. Bottom line, just another basic motel room “pretending” to be a suite!

Room Tip: The "suite" designation is a misrepresentation. The rooms are just basic motel rooms

The studio room is not huge but still plenty of room with a lovely sunny little courtyard outside. The bed was comfortable and the bathroom large. The plunger coffee was much appreciated! Parking was undercover which was great for motorbikes! Easy walking distance to restaurants, grog shop etc. Will definitely stay again.
