Booked one night away for our wedding anniversary. The staff were fantastic and we really appreciated the upgrade. The room was well appointed, nicely presented and the view out to the lake delightful. We had dinner at Bistro Lago and would highly rate it to anyone. We loved the degustation menu and once again the service was impeccable.

We arrived late in the evening after travelling from Auckland. Checked in with reception whom pre booked us a table at the restaurant. Had a beautiful meal with drinks - very relaxing after a long drive. Went up to our room to find our bags perfectly arranged after being dropped off whilst we relaxed and ate. Again another fantastic night at the Hilton. We very much look forward to returning.

Work organized this trip to Taupo, this was the second time we used the Hilton for this type of event. The hotel is easy to find and evenso the surroundings in front of the building are looking a bit wild the grounds are very tidy and the lookout over the lake towards the mountains is stunning, as long as you get a room towards the front of the building. Service, cleanliness was as expected and everyone enjoyed the one night stay :-)

We stayed two nights recently in the new section of this hotel and enjoyed staying here. It was clean and spacious. We had a rental car and there is plenty of parking. We enjoyed nipping next door to the hot pools as well. Bathroom was lovely and we had a large balcony. The service was friendly and efficient.

The Hilton was able to accommodate for our unusual group of three adults and four children under 11 years old. The apartment was spacious and we had amazing view of lake Taupo and mount Ruapehu. Absolutely loved our stay

We had a one bedroom room with a beautiful view of the lake and mountains. The room was huge with a large lounge area and full kitchen. The facilities are beautiful and all staff were extremely helpful and pleasant. Thanks especially it Michael who looked after us at the Bistro Lago. Lovely food and ambience. The hotel is a little out of town but we had a hire car and no trouble finding our way around. A special thank you to housekeeping who bought us extra water for our daughter who was unwell ( we did not ask for this but was much appreciated).

Room Tip: Book the lake view rooms. During winter the view of snow capped mountains behind the lake is lovely
