“Good Value Comfortable, Clean Modern Apartment”
Reviewed September 10, 2009

We stayed in an upstairs one bedroom apartment for one night. The accommodation was clean, modern and very comfortable. We had a good view of the lake from afar as well as Mt Ruapehu. There was a great air conditioner which kept the whole place very warm and cosy during what was a really cold time.
Falls Chateau is a short way out of town but it was quiet and the short drive didn't worry Be careful what time you estimate to arrive - the manager was expecting us at exactly that time and if we were any later we might not have caught him.
us.
Overall it is great value for the price - especially after an extensive search of other accomoodation options in Taupo. I would stay here again.

The Chateau is easy to find and the accommodation is well worth the money. This is luxury accommodation at half price. The Duplex Apartment was fantastic with a full double fridge, granite counters, full kitchen and dining downstairs. Two bedrooms large lounge and balcony and bathroom upstairs. Furniture and art are original and very tastefully done and available for sale, which made for a nice momento. The fabrics and towels are superb and very plush. We really liked the express checkin at the room with mobile eftpos, no formal reception. Reminded me of boutique accommodation in the U.S. is seemless from airport to hotel room. The best $270 we spent for a room.

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.
