We stayed at this motel on 15th March 2013 for one night. We arrived in Taupo after a long drive from Wellington (almost half way into our holiday so we were tired) and we were greeted by the hotel manager George in a warm and courteous manner.
We had only 1 night and half a day in Taupo before heading toward Rotorua and George was most helpful in guiding us to the best places to see in such a short time frame. Although he could not accommodate us in any of the rooms on the ground level, which was a bit tough as we had a lot of luggage and a child but what made our stay pleasant, was the fact that he was cheerful and friendly.
The room was nice and clean and all amenities were provided as listed in the facilities. The hotel was also close to everything which is handy for travelers.
We will recommend this hotel; if you’re not after very modern accommodation, you will not go wrong here.
