We were really looking forward to our stay at Accent on Taupo with its promises of lake views, modern rooms and free wifi but ended up really disappointed. The rooms were decent and obviously recently refurbished but the promised lake view was only available from outside, was only side on and was over a mound, road and set of buildings on the other side of the road so really wasn't a feature! The promised free wi-fi was actually limited to a really small download maximum (we got about three searches on a hotel search website and it was all used up...then you have to start paying!) The welcome was not particularly warm either - we felt like we had disturbed the owner's afternoon with their family rather than arrived as paying guests! The location was also a 5-minute drive out of town and not really walkable for restaurants/ bars in the evening. As it turned out when we arrived in Taupo, there is much better value much closer to the town centre with better views and service.
