“We will definitely be back”
Reviewed September 1, 2010

There were seven of us travelling (four adults and three children/teenagers), so I had booked two one bedroom lake view rooms. The rooms were very modern with all the necessary little bits and pieces; it was relaxing with such a superb view of lake and mountains; walking distance to main city center and close to all the fun thrill seeking activities for the children/teens. The hotel had a trampoline for the kids, mini golf area in front of the hotel and a little park area as well .. so its ideal for and afternoon walk and to let the kids run and let off some energy.

I have already recommended this hotel to my family/friends and we will definitely be back to stay at this hotel.

We spent ages looking for accommodation in Taupo - location being pretty important as we wanted to wander into town for a meal without the hassle of driving. You need to be careful with a lot of nice-looking accommodation in Taupo as some are quite a way out of town. The Suncourt met our needs really well - it was around a 5 min walk to the nearest bars & restaurants.

We were a little nervous driving up to the Suncourt as there's a 70's style concrete block of units sitting out the front - it didn't look very inviting. The receptionist was smiling and friendly and we wandered over to our room with trepidation. The room was actually pretty good - a standard queen bed, desk, TV, little kitchenette (with little fridge/freezer and kettle), wardrobe (with ironing board etc), and a surprising large bathroom (with complimentary toiletries). A ranch slider opened up from the main room out onto the front lawn and the lake was just over the road (see the photo).

We didn't go to the bar/restaurant, except for breakfast (not bad) as there as a function on (a wedding I think).

If they have bigger rooms I think this hotel would be great for families. There is a swimming pool and spa onsite. We also happened upon a mini golf course just literally across the road.

We were pretty satisfied with our night at the Suncourt - it was nothing amazingly special or over the top but a good solid place to stay in a good location, at a good price :)
