“Suncourt Hotel”
Reviewed March 27, 2013

Good view of Lake Taupo from our second floor room. The room was right over the outdoor bar but it was quiet after 8pm. Could have been noisy on a busy summer day. Good wifi and no real complaints. A little 10 minute walk from the center of town, but that's OK because we don't like to stay in town.

Stayed March 2013, traveled as a couple

Everything about the Suncourt Hotel was perfect for my stay. The location was ideal, with a short walk to the shops, cafe's and the lake. I stayed in an upstairs garden view room which overlooked the children's play area and swimming pool. The view was not spectacular, but there was a nice balcony with a table and chairs to relax on and dry your swimmers. The apartment had one bedroom with a double bed, and two single beds in the main area with a lounge chair tv, mini kitchen (microwave & fridge plus utelsils). The hotel also provides free wifi, ask at the desk. They will give you vouchers with codes for your devices to link into the wifi. The decor was fresh, tidy and the room was perfectly clean and well maintained. The staff at the Suncourt Hotel were just lovely. They were very friendly and helped with any query I had. I couldn't have wished for anywhere better to stay. The Mousetrap restaurant did a great chicken burger, and they do provide breakfast, but it is cheaper to do your own breakfast in the room witht he kitchen facilities, and if you want to eat a hearty breakfast, there are numerous cafes in Taupo's central area which do great breakfasts.

It is great getting positive feedback on the staff. It is nice having both restaurant and bar facilities onsite, however as you commented the ability to get to town and other cafes is also of real value.
Really appreciate your comments. Thank you

From a distance I wondered what we were going to find at this Motor hotel. Looked like a truck stop but much better. Great surprise -We had a delightful patio overlooking the lake. Room was clean and had everything we needed. staff gave us internet coupons(free) and that was a plus. We had a Fantastic dinner right there at the restaurant. we stayed 2 days and i was comfortable walking all over town while my husband was fishing. It turned out to be much better than I expected...I would stay here again.

Stayed here for 2 nights, room was very comfy.....You could use as much internet as you wanted, which is useful for booking onward travel etc etc
Just a short walk to the town and shops, info centre...We had a lake view, (even though it was a cheap late booking) we had nice balcony and could sit and relax and look at the view....Ruapehu visible amongst the clouds......
Everyone in the hotel and the town seem really friendly.
We ate once in The Mousetrap restaurant, and have no complaints at all...Yummy!
Pleasant atmosphere, not rushed, will definitely stay here again....

Room Tip: Lake view if available

We booked a family room just to give us more space. It was a little dated but had two bedrooms and good beds, large lounge with Sky TV, good bathroom (one tip though - don't leave the window open at night unless you like mossies). Good size kitchen with a two ring stove top, microwave and fridge. All the other rooms had been updated so I guess the four family rooms are last on the list although their price reflected the fact that they had still to be modernised. Wireless internet in the room but poor signal making it hard to download but our room was the furthest from reception. Wireless signal in the bar OK.
Good pool area although water a little cold but it is March.
Reception staff very helpful.
We had one meal in the restaurant which was very good but the menu wasn't extensive although most restaurants in Taupo had similar size menus.
Hotel overlooked the lake and was two blocks away from town with all its shops, bars and restaurants.
Lake Taupo is an ideal activity centre with loads going on in and around the lake.

Stay regularly for work. Rooms are modern and comfortable. The shower is older and has water pressure that stings. Try to get an upstairs roadfront room. sitting on the balcony with a glass of what you like on a great evening is an experience you will not get everywhere.
The restaurant is great for breakfast and dinner. If you want to go else where you can charge back to your room. Take fresh milk if you dont like treated sachets of UHT.
Larger family units down the back are good value

Room Tip: Try to get an upstairs roadfront room, Can be noisy but great views.
