We stayed in a studio twin lake room. Our room was on the bottom floor. It's a 2 story building. There are different sections of the hotel but our building is right in the front facing a lawn and Lake Taupo. There are some trucks parked right on the lawn but luckily they didn't park in front of our unit so our view of the Lake was not blocked.
Did not see any elevator in our section of the building. The parking area is right behind each unit. There's a vending machine outside. We couldn't get a wi-fi signal from our room, maybe because our room is at the end of the building (room no. 14). Free wi-fi but you will need to ask the receptionist for an access code. It's a different code for different room. There are 2 computers free to use near the reception area. There's a restaurant right next to the entrance area and another one right next door.
The room is quite spacious. It comes with 1 single bed and 1 double bed. It has 2 chairs and a table. A sliding glass door facing the lake. A remote control A/C (very quiet) and a flat screen TV that has about 8 or 9 channels. The bathroom is quite spacious. It's dated and there are a couple of chips on the bath tub. The shower area is very small, perhaps the smallest one I've ever seen. No fans in the bathroom. There are windows that can be opened, they are opened to a corridor facing the parking lot. No tissues in the bathroom so be sure to bring your own.
The beds are a bit too soft but I didn't get a backache from it. The sink by the entry area has separate cold and hot water spouts and so close to the wall so it's a bit hard to wash your cups or glasses. There's a small refrigerator. Coffee/tea electric kettle. Ironing board, iron, hair dryer and extra pillows inside the closet.
Even though it's pretty close to the main road but it was quiet at night. I'm a light sleeper and I didn't hear any noise. There's a pool and jacuzzi area to the side of the parking lot. They're all outdoor. Overall it's not bad other than their tiny shower area and practically non existent wi-fi in the room. Good location if you want to stay close to the city center, only a 5 minute leisurely walk. You can find all kinds of places to dine.
