“Awesome stay will be back”
Reviewed August 31, 2011

Working in Taupo and needed a place to stay. Nice comfortable room with good kitchen facilities. Nice and handy to town and all the things Taupo have to offer. Nice friendly staff and very helpful. When back in Taupo I will defiantly stay there again.

My wife and I stayed here in April, we still talk about it all these months later. Well what can i say, the place had dirty carpets, settee and black bed sheets with matching duvet cover, the thoughts of sleeping here made my skin crawl. Don,t worry about the windows not being cleaned as the bedroom we stayed in had no windows, it was between the living area and the bathroom. There was human hair in the bed and my wife was not to happy to stay here, but we decided to stay put for the night.

Only stay here if it is a must and you are on a small budget. I don,t like doing bad reviews but of all the places we stayed in on our 4 week holiday this was the pits. We were taught a valuable lessen if you spend a little more, you get a lot more.

The room was VERY dirty and full of insects of different kind. The carpet was full of stains and smelled awful. There were lots of ants, flies and spiders in the room and LOTS of old spiderweb hanging from the ceiling.
When we complained of the dirtyness and all the insects the staff went really unfriendly and said that the room was very cheap so what could we expect. He told us that we could change to another room if we were not satisfied but then we had to pay 12 NZ dollar extra for the cleaning of the first room because he could not rent it out to someone else!! The other room he showed us also had spiderweb and also it had LOTS of slimy trecks on the carpet which when I asked about it the staff said were from the snails. "The snails sometimes get in after the cleaning"!!
During our 6 weeks of travel in New Zealand and previous extensive travelling through several countries in Asia, Africa and South America we have NEVER experienced anything as horrible as this!! Unfortunately we had booked the room in advance and arrived very late and our children were too tired to travel further so we slept there despite all this - the motel is situated in a residental area and there are no other motels or backpackers in the area. The place has ads and a homepage that makes it looks very nice but DO NOT GO THERE!!
