After our previous nights stay in a very average hotel in Taupo, this one came as a lovely surprise. A quite large multi storey building with the Quest apartments on the lower levels, our apartment had a nice balcony and a nice view of the town along with part of the bay.
Lots of room here - no poky motel or dingy bathrooms - all very good quality. Nice furnishings, quiet, good aircon, quality towels; very well presented. Walking distance of only a couple of minutes to a huge range of quality restaurants along the waterfront. Helpful chap on the reception desk on arrival but the checkout lady next morning seemed pretty disinterested in the whole process.
One bug - horrid entry to carpark underneath the building on a really steep slope and curve (the security shutter closed before our eyes before we could even reach it), but even having negotiated that your trouble isn't over with extremely tight ingress/egress for the entire carpark between levels - which shows in the thick paint marks left on the pillars and the thick black tyre marks on the kerbs by many others who have clearly failed the test. Don't try to get a large vehicle in this carpark.
