“Friendly Motel close to Town”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 19, 2014

We have stayed here numerous times whilst renting our own house out for events. Owners very happy and helpful, nothing is a problem for them. Rooms are clean and tidy and very spacious. Motel is close to lakefront and walking distance to town very very convenient and very reasonable prices. They even do cooked breakfasts as an extra if you book the night before. Great

Room Tip: If a family ask for big unit at front of Motel they are so spacious and give your children pleanty o...

A warm and inviting place to stay. The room was clean and well equipped and the host was lovely. Very close to the city centre and a good rate. My partner and I were both in taupo for a weekend of tramping and would definitely recommend this motel

Very nice motel close to everything.
We had a room on the second floor from which we could see the lake and the mountains.
The room was big and comfortable. Nice and clean.
The lady at reception very friendly and welcoming.
I would stay there again.

I travelled around the North Island with a pet paying approx 90 to 130 NZ$ per night. At $115 NZ this was one of the better motels. The unit was clean, comfortable and spacious. The lady/owner was friendly and helpful, did not have extra surcharges for the pet and was generous with the WiFi.
I would not hesitate in staying here again.

This is a small motel block and has good car parking. The unit I had was large, quite well equiped, very clean, comfortable and had a car park space right outside the door. It was a ground floor unit so I did not actually have a view of the mountain but in the middle of winter that was not a problem. The bed was very comfortable. It is within about ten minutes walk to the shopping area and restraunts. I consider that that this would be good accommodation for a longer stay than my one night. A very enjoyable stay and lovely hosts.

Room Tip: I would suggest that anyone staying for more than one night to ask for a unit upstairs so as to be a...

I recently sayed at the Mountain View Motel in Taupo and was very impressed with the level of service from the motel owners. Cathy the owner met me at the airport and was cheerful, friendly and very helpful. I would recommend the cooked breakfast as one of the best I have had at a NZ motel.

Room Tip: The motel is on a very quiet sidestreet.

We secured an upstairs family room during the busy Christmas-New Year period. Although a non-smoking room, the room smelled of smoke. There was no kitchenette, only the bathroom sink for washing up. The room was pretty tired with a small old TV, and was not overly clean.
