We booked with the Courtney Motel because they had a late check in. This was perfect as we had just bought a car and was driving it home to Christchurch. We decided on a Motel because I would be able to park outside the room. Unfortunately when we arrived at midnight, our park was taken. A little disappointed, but I... More

Our two bedroom unit cost $250 per night. For that we got a terrible smelling unit, stains all over the carpet (the largest hadn't even had an attempt to clean it), leaking shower, other peoples' hair through it, and generally filthy. Have paid less for a top notch rooms in Wellington. Complained to the person at front desk, no help/discount/extra... More

Stayed here for 1 night on our way through to Napier and found it to be a neat and tidy 1 bedroom apartment. Bed was super comfy, and kitchenette was sufficient. Upon arriving we were a little confused with the check in being next door but soon figured it out, the lovely receptionist even came over to show us where... More

Great little find near Lake Taupo, clean and well decorared room, good sized bathroom, kitchenette and table. I've stayed in some not-so-nice motels but this was more like a hotel room with the amenities of a motel. Microwave, fridge, tv, sink, kettle, and hairdryer. Only downside was that we wanted to use the spa but it was covered over, despite... More

Thanks for the feedback. It's great to hear you enjoyed your stay. We cover the pool with a thermal cover to retain the heat and maintaining temperature at night. The pool can be accessed by removing the cover during the pool opening hours. I do apologise if this prevented you from using the pool. We will look at improving signage... More

Nice roomy hotel room. Managed to score a room with a spa bath. Perfect after a few days at mt ruapehu. Front desk staff were extremely friendly. Close tithe waterfront and within walking distance of shops and restaurants. Great value for money.

Very enjoyable stay. A pleasant room, good size, comfortably furnished, well-equipped kitchen area, nice bathroom with jacuzzi corner bath. The staff were helpful and friendly and it is a nice location, just on the road out of town, a couple of minutes from the lake and an easy walk back to the centre. Free laundry facility a nice bonus.

Hard to find economical accommodation in Taupo. This one checks all the boxes for a budget/3.5 star accommodation and goes the extra mile with the level of cleanliness. The location is great too - just 2 minute walk to lake front and hardly 10 minutes to city center.
