3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed December 30, 2012

Located a little out of the main area the rooms were hot and they only had 1 room with air conditioning. the bed was too soft and there was noise from the street if we had arrived early i would have looked for something else

We spent two night in Chantilly's Motor Lodge and enjoyed every second of it. The service was great, breakfast was nice and the location is convenient. We had an Executive Spa Suite on first floor facing the street. The room was very big and absolutely clean. However, the best of all was the in-room spa pool. We've never had a spa pool in the bedroom before and really liked it. We'll be back one day!

Room Tip: Even if you're on a small budget, treat yourself to a bit of luxury with the Executive Spa Suite...

We stayed here over a weekend in July. Got a lovely room with an attached spa. The owners are super friendly and helpful with their recommendations. Rooms are quite nice and we had one with a view of the lake and the mountain. The owner recommended dinner at a place called the Bantry - which was spectacular

We styed in a groun floor 2 bedroon apartment. The staff were very helpful on arrival giving me some very valuable local information on which tourist attractions were value for money. The apartment was brilliant, 2 seperate bedrooms to go with the main room. Parking at the door. I would highly recommend the 2 bed apartment.

We stayed 3 nights recently in 1 bedroom spa upstairs unit. Very spacious and views over Taupo town and Lake.
Spotlessly clean.
Only a 2 or 3 blocks to town so not too far to walk.
The unit is superbly equipped with everything you need.
The spa was wonderful.
Very quiet units even though they were full or nearly full each night.
Comfy beds, the only thing for the bedroom would be great if the curtains had black out lining on them as it is not very dark for sleeping.
The service from the owners was exceptional.
We left all our clothes in the wardrobe and when we were half way home received a call from Sue. She put the clothes on the courier service and we received them 2 days later. Thought that was pretty awesome.
I rang the motel and was given a cheaper rate than was advertised on the web.
Would certainly go back.

Sue & Don are great hosts and they make you feel at home here. I stayed here for 2 weeks while trying to find a house to rent in Taupo, it is a close walk to town and a very quiet hotel even on weekends. If you are staying for a few days there is a outdoor grill by the pool that is quite handy if you get sick of eating takeaway. Very friendly, clean and quiet place with everything in Taupo accessible by foot.

Room Tip: We were in Room 13 it has a kitchenette with dishes etc Rooms have Sky and unlimited internet.
