A fantastic motel, with great amenities and friendly welcoming staff. Staff organise the units for a late arrival with the unit being heated and beds on, most appreciated after a long late night drive, thanks. More than happy to stay again on another trip through :-)

We stayed here for 3 nights back in January - sorry it has taken such a long time before reviewing. We liked the amount of room we had and the views from the upstairs - we had the cottage nearest to the lake. Unfortunately the weather in the evenings meant we weren't able to make use of the outside eating area.
The spa bath was quite nice as a novelty but would have been happy with a modern walk in wetroom/shower instead. Needs updating in terms of decor (one of the wallpapers was identical to one we had in UK in the early 1980s but perhaps it was later getting to NZ!).
Good spot for doing the tourist trips in the area.

This lovely little motel is in the middle of a refurb, and we had a 'cottage' that definitley needed updating. However this didn't detract from the spaciousness and comfort of the accommodation, and we met the most delightful motel owners in the whole of New Zealand! The motel is located some distance away from Taupo centre but the owners offered to drive us into the town centre if we wanted to dine there. We didn't need to take up their offer as we found a lovely restaurant in a nearby hotel. I'm sure this place will be officially 5* when everything's finished, but we rate it that already.

We stayed at the lovely cottage mews on the shores of Lake Taupo with our 2 children 9 and 12. We love the upstairs/downstairs nature of the units. We get our own toilet, spa bath lovely huge bed with TV upstairs, whilst the kids slept downstairs ( they had their own TV too) Space plus. You can nip out the back and walk along the shores of Lake Taupo. Being Techy family we loved the free access to Wireless for our IPADS. Cosey electric blankets and most importantly super service. Very friendly hosts - We left our Coffee plunger behind and it was promptly sent back to us free of charge - can't get better than that. A great stay for families with old fashion country cottage charm with all the comforts you can ask. :) happy Campers.
