Having booked this motel according to location and price, we were pleasantly surprised to find a spotless unit with 2 bedrooms, well appointed kitchen, free wifi and sky TV. We were in Taupo for a special party and on enquiring at reception about a taxi, the manager amazingly kindly volunteered to drive us into town. He even mentioned that we...

Friendly front counter. Large room which certainly was value for money. Sky TV and coffee from a plunger suits me just fine. Not to mention the free wi fi. Bed seems comfy and amenities are just fine. I would return and also recommend.

Before you read- I would stay here again. Oh my, we were in Vesa Block heaven. There is nothing that screams “stay in me” then an off grey painted Vesa Block building. However we were nearing the end of our holiday and we were strapped for cash. “Something cheap please”, I conveyed to my wife as I sat in a...

We were in a unit at the back and definitely heard very little traffic noise, Unit was spotlessly clean and had all the facilities we wanted for our stay. An excellent location - we were able to walk to all but the out of town sights. Would certainly stay here again.

We had was a two-room unit, which seemed to us was a literally combination of two otherwise separate, standard units. However, it keeps only one shower stall and one toilet, but there are useless space that could accommodate another set of washroom facilities. No matter what, the motel is reasonably well maintained and is generally clean over-all.

Had a great stay at this motel in Taupo for an overnight on the way down the North Island. Off the main road it is quiet and manager stayed up late till we'd arrived from Auckland. Heating had been turned on in the room and easily slept the 5 travellers. Well equipped with kitchenette, spare towels and plenty of space....

This motel was ideal for our purpose.Dog friendly, clean and close to city centre. The host made it easy for us, as there are limited units available for pets. This is appropriate for all parties. We will be happy to return and recommend it to other people who choose to take their pets with them.

It was great being able to take our little dog with us. Unfortunately the heater kept blowing a fuse and going off. We approached the owner but he didn't seem to believe us. Had to get up in the night to reset the fuse as we awoke from the cold.

Thanks again for your second review, just on a different site. I hope you got the response I gave to the first review. Anyone reading the review please note, there was a problem with the heater tripping the fuse, it has now been fixed. I didn't realise the electrician had not hooked the heater into the correct amperage. It is...

We have used the Adelphi Motel on numerous occasions, always found it to be clean comfortable & welcoming. Additionally it is pet friendly which has been of great help to us. The manager is certainly the right man in the right job.
