Best motel I've stayed in in NZ - and as a former rep I've tried a few. Wonderful hosts, the room (suite) was great, the location is fantastic for a walk into town and the complimentary breakfast is a lovely extra. Made me and the whole family feel really welcome and even let my wife and baby stay in the... More

One night layover on route north. Spacious units directly across from the Lake. It's an easy walk into town too. The owners Karen & Terry were extremely helpful and accommodating for the duration of our stay. They showed us through the apartment on arrival, ensuring we were happy etc. It was raining heavily that evening and they offered to take... More

Karen and Terry Carter were fantastic from start to end. Complimentary breakfast was always on time and delicious. They went out of their way to make you feel welcome and were always there for any help (logging into internet from our phone and driving us to a party). We have never experienced service this outstanding before.

The breakfast included in the price was very nice, well cooked poached eggs, good to start the day. The owners/managers very pleasant. Even though the... More

Great location by the lake, clean and well equipped. Within walking distance to shops, restaurants and bars. Staff very friendly and helpful, they even offer a complimentary shuttle service into town if needed. The price includes breakfast, a choice of continental or cooked, which is delivered to your room at your requested time slot. Great value motel.

This very comfortable motel is absolutely waterfront and very close to centre of Taupo for eating drinking etc and all things Taupo. Breakfast was even included which amazed me at the great cost of the room, which was clean and spacious and is split into a lounge area and a sleeping area like a small 1bed apartment. I will definitely... More

We stayed one night on our way passing through Taupo on our travels with our two young children in a downstairs room. The room was clean and warm and the spa bath was a big hit with the children! The sofa bed in the lounge had to be moved in order to fold it out for sleeping but wasn't a... More
