A really nice motel. The owners were great and the location was fantastic. Rooms are large, the pool clean and right on the lake. Thoroughly enjoyed our stay though it was too short.

Very happy with our time here. We found this place highly recommended via TripAdvisor and booked in advance to get the best studio with a view of the lake. Right by the lake, close to town and all your tourist-y desires. Very comfortable and clean with everything you need, Very friendly hosts. Highly recommended!!

Our family unit was spotlessly clean, smart and well designed. Lovely lakeside setting and nice swimming pool for the children. There is also a spa pool. Would recommend for families or couples. On edge of Taupo which gives it relaxed feel but still not far from town centre.

We stayed at Cascades early August and were very impressed by the hotel. Alsiter and Charlene were wonderful hosts and recommended activities both in Taupo and at our next destination. We were upgraded to a room on the second floor and really enjoyed the view. The room was big and cosy. It was also very clean. We had breakfast at the hotel which was kindly brought over by Charlene on both nights. We really had a great time and enjoyed meeting the very friendly hosts.

The deluxe suites have excellent facilities to a good standard. The owners are quite new and making upgrades and improvements all the time. The cooked breakfast is excellent.

We enjoyed our stay at the Cascades very much. Close to the lake, jacuzzi, swimming pool and lovely clean rooms with everything what you need. We staid on the 2nd floor, which had a nice view and a great balcony to sit outside and enjoy a cold drink in the evening. We will definitely stay there again when visiting Taupo.

“Cascades Motor Lodge was the perfect venue for our annual Family Holiday. Each year, all of our family get together some place in New Zealand for at least a few days and this year it was Taupo. Our family consists of 20 people ranging from five to 82 years. We found Cascades Motor Lodge a fantastic family venue as we were able to occupy units side by side and using Unit 1, the largest, as our gathering unit, we easily catered and socialised in a private garden with gorgeous lake views.
Our family have been doing these holidays for many years now and I know what is required for a venue to work well for us. Right from my first discussion with Charlene, I was impressed with her genuine willingness to be of assistance. Communication was easy and we felt very welcome.
Our rooms of course were all clean and the staff very friendly and helpful. Although we have plans already for the next year, there is a general consensus for us to return to Cascades Motor Lodge for another family holiday.
Thank you, to all at Cascades Motor Lodge.“
