A good location if you want a quiet retreat feel but a ten minute drive if you have to leave the resort to go into Taupo.A great place if you have children as there is so much for them to do.Pool area is well maintained but felt the corridors a bit shabby.The room was adequate but felt for the price it was a bit underwhelming however it did open out onto a lovely lawn and pool area.Bathroom was not clean and again at this level of accommodation this is not really acceptable .Staff were welcoming and very helpful.Breakfast was generous but
Lacked the finesse of presentation.Have stayed several times before as I like the tranquility of the location - however was overall disappointed so would probably think carefully before rebooking.
