The Sails Inn is an absolutely amazing place to stay. The hosts / owners are very friendly and did everything they could to make the stay even better. I will defently come back. The room with the lakeview was amazing and also the bbq Station. Everything we needed was there. It was like you are on your holidays while you are in holidays. Never was so sad after leaving a hotel.
All the best and greetz from germany :) !

The view from our room was amazing. The room was comfortable and very clean. Our host Chris was very friendly and helpful. Overall a very pleasant stay. Recommend dining at the Lazy Trout just walking distance down the road.

All round nice stay.
Very pleasant surroundings (right across a road from the lake) and staff. And very nice set up for the rooms - only issue was the size the rubbish bin (the small kitchen one we had was full after one night) and as issues go that was very minor.

Thanks for the pleasant stay :-)

Thank you so much #66chris_bennett for taking the time to review your stay with us at Sails. We would have been happy to empty out your rubbish bin for you had you told us, we are pleased it didn't effect your overall experience though. Should you ever find yourself in Taupo again, we would love to welcome you back.

Enjoyed the sails apartments for a two-day stay in Taupo. Free parking and a place right across the street from a great beach on the lake. Great wifi and service from staff. Highly recommended. Check it out.

A clean place with a good view of the fantastic Lake Taupo. We stayed in the Spa Bath Room which is slightly smaller but is at the back with less traffic noise. Small kitchenette for simple meal preparation. Staff is friendly and helpful. Makes a lovely stroll to the beach.

Room Tip: Take the front rooms to have full view of lake, back quarters if you cannot stand traffic noise.
