All our expectations were met at this excellent property on our recent family (5adults) NZ tour.
Check in was conducted by friendly, efficient Maya for our 3 day stay in the beautifully appointed 3 bedroom apartment with its large open plan kitchen/living room running between the lake-side balcony and the pool-side balcony. Hilton quality comfy beds were so nice to come home to after our excursions to Rotorua and beyond.
The grounds are nicely laid out and maintained, and the mountain and lake views I am sure are more and more spectacular as the weather permits. (I look forward to returning for the sunny vistas.)
The thermally heated pool and jacuzzi are additions which I will also try out next time!
Breakfast was fine - nothing to ooh and aah about. Some chose to breakfast in the apartment but we used the kitchen each night for dinner as our holiday purpose was to spend lots of time together with our 87 year Mum.
The apartment @ Hilton Taupo certainly enhanced our holiday experience tremendously with the only quibble being the elusive/erratic internet connection.
