Big, clean room, full kitchen with two beds. An hour or so of free internet similar to other lodging in this class. No A/C. Quiet location within walking distance to much of Taupo CBD. Beds were maybe a tad hard for my liking but I'd stay here again.

I almost did not write a review for the Chevron because I thought there was nothing to say. That is its strength, it been refurbished recently, it's spotless, separate bedroom, good shower, good cooking facilities, pretty central and very friendly owners. The supermarkets are close too. The WIFI was weak at times but we were furthest from the router.

It's a motel and its pretty good at being one.

We picked this motel from the free Jason guide and were very impressed. The unit was on the ground floor, spacious, with a separate bedroom. A stones throw from both the Cosmopoltan club and the RSA. Walking distance to town centre was easy. More than adequate kitchen facilities. I would certainly recommend this motel.

I chanced on the Chevron motel about 8 years ago,and stay there every year.It is excellent in every respect.Glenys and Allan are 2 of the nicest people you will meet anywhere,and nothing is too much trouble for them.As for the person claiming they were scammed,Glenys and Allan are incapable of that sort of behaviour,and I believe it says more about the person writing the review than it does about Glenys and Allan.As for the motel,it is spacious,very clean and convenient for everything as well as being excellent value.

Room Tip: Let Glenys and Allan sort it for you.

The unit was very clean and spacious with cooker, fridge/freezer, microwave and quite a good sized tv on the wall . We were given a bottle of milk on arrival and coffee and tea bags were in the unit. We had a 2 bedroom unit with a double bed and another with 2 single beds. The cost was $140 NZD for one night for 3 adults which was roughly £73. There was also a small spa pool to use just by putting your room number against the half hour you wanted to use it, this was free. The owners were very friendly and very helpful in suggesting places to visit etc. We liked it that much that when we decided to visit Taupo again 2 weeks later we rebooked into the Chevron, and actually got the same room again too. I would definitely recommend this motel because it was very clean, tidy, spacious, reasonably priced, and centrally located for lots of things that tourists like seeing and doing. Excellent !!
