Located on the outside the centre of Taupo, this motel is about 10-15 minutes walk from the shops and restaurants, and about five minutes walk from the lakeside promenade. The property is next to the main road, so there is some traffic noise in the motel units. The motel shares an entrance with the next-door motel. Our unit had a very limited lake view from the living area window.
The units have free hard-wired broadband internet, but no wifi. There is free use of a back-office PC. The property has no guest laundry or swimming pool, but breakfasts can be ordered for delivery to your room.
We stayed in a first-floor Superior Unit, with a living/dining area, kitchenette, separate bedroom, ensuite bathroom with spa bath and shower. The unit was spacious, clean and well-decorated. The kitchenette was equipped with fridge, toaster and microwave, but no hob. There were TV's in both the living area and the bedroom. Air conditioning was fitted in the lounge - essential in hot weather judging by how hot the lounge window became in full sun. For some reason, the lounge window, which overlooked a residential side-road, was fitted with part-obscured glass, which meant you could not look out unless standing up! The bedroom window was small and located high up on the wall.
The staff we dealt with were polite, friendly and efficient, offering us advice on local amenities and places to go. Our unit was promptly and efficiently serviced on each day of our stay.
We felt this motel offered good value, given the spacious size and amenities of our unit and the property's location in Taupo.
