We were welcomed by the friendly manager, and were given our complementary breakfast menu. The room was clean and had everything we needed. Sky tv in both the bedroom and the lounge with lots of channels. Spa bath was great with strong water pressure in the shower. When breakfast was delivered it was really nice. We will definitely make this...

This is an excellent Motel run by friendly, helpful people. The rooms are excellent, the beds are superb, the showers are excellent and if you have a room with a spa bath as we did you will find it is excellent with endless hot water. The rates are surprisingly low and then we were informed that we also had complimentary...

Owners were cheerful and helpful - no complaints at all in that area. Shortage of power points for the gadgets! The outside corridor runs past your window...

This place is a must stay in Taupo. The service provided by Karen and Terry was fantastic: free breakfast with room delivery; clothes washed, dried, folded and delivered to rooms free of charge; and they also provided expert local advice on a hike to Mount Ruapehu that proved to be an amazing experience. Rooms were spacious and well kept and...

Couldn't beat it. Great space with lake view. Spa bath and shower over. Really comfortable throughout. Onsite parking. The owners are really helpful and tried to fit the right apartment to our needs. Nothing too much trouble. The memorable one of the best.

So impressed with this motel - what a great find! We are a family of four and were so impressed with the space we had in the one bedroom unit we had. It was nicely decorated and felt bright and modern even though it was the back unit so didn't get much natural light. You couldn't fault the cleanliness of...
