Reviewed June 28, 2011

I stayed here on the recommendation of a business friend. When you are on the road selling all you want is a quiet, clean and warm place to stay. The Free Internet was a first for me. Havn't come across that before now! Well done Colin and Yen who are quiet yet friendly couple. This place would be awesome for family holidays in Taupo. The rooms are large and sunny! Thanks Colin and Yen.

Reviewed February 21, 2010

This Motel was ok but lacked a few basics. The welcome was quite poor and almost seemed to be an effort. The owners kept their distance during our stay which was a bit of a shame and weren't particularly friendly.
The unit was alright, although it was quite dark and there were no nets on the big French windows which looked out directly onto the main driveway, so curtains couldn't be opened until we were fully dressed.
Wireless internet was offered but we couldn't pick it up unless we went outside, and as it was raining it was a no go.
It's in a good location, only a few minutes walk to the Lake and the town centre.
I wouldn't discount this Motel but would look around first.

My partner and myself stayed two nights and were sorry to go,the unit was spotlessly clean the cooking facilities were excellent as was the bedroom and lounge. I would recommend this motel to all of my friends.
