My mother and father stayed at the Cascades in 2000 when they visited New Zealand. Sadly we lost Dad in 2003, but I wanted to take Mum back to visit her brother who lives in NZ. She and Dad had loved the place it was one of the stand out places they had stayed at.
Our hosts Charlene and Alister were incredibly welcoming and accommodating. They gave us as much information as we needed to explore the area and also how to keep my 8 year old son amused. The even hooked us up with another family who were staying at the same time so the children could play together.
The hotel itself was in a quiet location about a mile and a half from the town itself. The rooms were spacious and the layout worked well for our family group. We could even accommodate all our luggage. The only let down was the decor was a bit tired, but it was immaculately clean.
At the time we commented that with a fresh coat of paint and updating curtains, carpets and bedding covers it would be perfection. However I note on the website that it was refurbished in June 2011 and is now a Comfort Inn but still with the same lovely host. So I am sure it really is a wonderful place to stay at when visiting Lake Taupo now.
