A pleasant surprise to see the spa beside the queen size bed when I entered (I thought the spa is located in the bathroom). Even better, there is a small private backyard adding homely atmosphere to the otherwise small studio room.
The room is well kept, nicely decorated to give a country living feel, airy and clean, even though it is relatively near the main road along Lake Taupo, I don't hear traffic noise at all. It has a microwave, bar fridge, tea/coffee facilities, cockery and cuttery, small table with 2 chairs, plasma tv that can be rotated to face any angle of the room (spa/bed/dining area), table with 2 chairs in the backyard, 2-person spa bath and a good size shower/toilet.
The host was very helpful in helping us with our queries, especially in recommending places to eat (thank you). There is a guest laundry on the property, a couple of kayaks for guest use, minutes walk to the lake and free WiFi.
Would be 5 star if it's not for the mattress' quality - the one I slept on is a bit soft in the middle for comfortable sleep.More
