“Great Choice”
Reviewed February 16, 2012

Great room, large queen bed and a single bed. Both beds were comfortable. Tea and coffee facilities. fridge,
Shower in bathroom which was great, hot water.
Our room was in a very quiet corner on first floor so we didnt get disturbed.
We only stayed one night but I wouldnt hesitate for a second to book a longer stay should I have the opportunity to return to New Zealand and lake Taupo.
Close to everything.
Good parking facilities.
Staff were very very helpful and friendly.

We stayed at Silver fern for two nights on our trip around North Island and must say that there was nothing to complain about at all. The staff were exceptional, the studio rooms were clean and the idea of communal kitchen made things easy. It was so good that we added another 2 nights to the end of our road trip and went back there!! We had one night in the basic rooms which was very reasonably priced and you shared communal facilities. These were bright and well kept. For our last night, Clare and Eddie let us have a studio room again, and it was, again, very reasonably priced. I have stayed in many, many motels and hotels due to my job, and can say that this one is definitely up there. Highly recommended.

Room Tip: If you want really quiet then further away from Communal kitchen would be better, not that it was to...

If you're looking for spacious, clean, great valued accommodation - look no further than the Silver Fern Lodge. You couldn't ask for a better location, within walking distance to everything. The spacious dorm rooms were fantastic for our girls, the adults with our own ensuites loved our rooms. The kitchen facilities were the best I have ever seen, modern, clean and very well equipped. The spacious lounge was big enough to cater for everyone. The pool table was a bonus as was the vending machines. All bedding and towels were supplied, with heaters and electric blankets in our rooms. I certainly struck gold finding this place - a must stay for any sports group (we had a group of 28). Would highly recommend - you won't be disappointed. Can't thank you enough Clare, Eddie, & Glen for such a wonderful stay.

Room Tip: Any room was a good room :)

We really enjoyed our stay, it was clean, very comfortable, conveniently located, we could walk into town and to the water front. I love that that there are various types of accommodation from backpacker to motel unit. Clare is awesome, helpful and friendly. Definitely recommended.

We booked this last minute for one night and it was the cheapest we found in Taupo (not incl. hostels) . It's in a good location with short walk to shops, restaurants and of course the lake! Room is basic, with everything you need. Clean and tidy. Management were very friendly and happy to offer advice on the local area/attractions. Would stay again.
