“A real unexpected treat”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 24, 2009

We stayed here for just one night while passing through Taupo and booked at the last minute - literally 10 mins outsite of Taupo. The Queen room we'd been looking at on the internet was not available when we called, however we were advised we could have the apartment for the same $119 cost. After some initial difficulty finding the place we were greeted with a very fine building overlooking a distant Lake Taupo. The apartment was lovely, had everything we needed, quality furnishings and we were most comfortable - possibly apart from the over-stuffed pillows on the bed, but I have a preference for flat pillows. All in all, a lovely place to stay, great value and a nice setting given that we didn't need to go into Taupo, it is probably too far to walk into town but would only be a short drive. The manager was polite and check-in was fast and painless, check-out even easier. The manager-recommended breakfast at the vineyard nearby was wonderful.
