We recently travelled to Taupo for six nights with three additional families who all had children between 2 and 12. We were 18 in total, 9 children and 9 adults. Charlene and Alister, the proprietors of Cascades Motor Lodge, could not have been more accommodating. They were helpful, informative, interested and exceptionally friendly. They were always in a good mood, nothing was too much of a problem despite us asking for all sorts of things eg extra plates, platters, cutlery so that we could all eat together in the evening. The location is great for children as it leads straight down to the lake where they can bike, walk or play. We had a boat and easy access to the water so could water ski, take out the biscuit or just cruise around the lake with the littler ones. We walked into town a number of times around the lake with the childen in tow which took about 60 mins by the time we stopped to look at various things, try out the water and the blackberries growing on the bushes. At the Motor Lodge there is a spa pool and heated swimming pool. The children had endless fun here and everyone was very tolerant of them. Charlene and Alister also pointed out what was to be a highlight of our walk to Huka Falls from Country Lane, off Spa Rd near Info Centre, namely the thermal streams and waterfall at the very outset of the walk, down from the carpark and under the bridge. Adults and children alike loved this. Many thanks for our stay Charlene and Alister and we are planning our next Easter break to you guys in 2012.
