Stayed with my 9 year old granddaughter. Staff were very helpful with local information. It is a small motel but clean and comfortable. Across the road from the lake. It was perfect for us and not expensive.

Thank you for your review. We try to make sure guests know what they can do while in the district. Sometimes local knowledge is better than travel guides! Regards Fran - Host

I paid extra for a room with a view of the lake. Actually, I needed to sit on the deck to see the lake, which was quite enjoyable. There is a walking path along the lake, which went for quite a ways. The bed was very comfortable. I slept like a baby. I also used the hot tub, which has...

It is great to see the guests enjoying the lake outlook from our front decks - so relaxing! And when people tell us they sleep like babes in our beds we are really pleased. The quiet location plus the great beds work like a charm for the weary traveler! Regards Fran - Host

We had a king studio room which was spacious with 2 different outside seating areas one which looked across the road to the lake and the other in its own small garden space. It is out of the town in 2 mile bay so not suitable if you want to walk to all the bars and restaurants. There is however...

Thanks for the review on the property. Glad to see people using the garden nooks at the back of the units. The perfect place to chill after a hard day of activities! And our flags are a hit with guests - we try to fly country flags for our international guests BUT we don't have every country in stock so...

We had a great week's stay at the Accent on Taupo Motor Lodge. The cottage we (myself, wife & 2 kids) sayed in was tidy, clean, well looked after and comfortable. It is great for couples & families. It has a beautiful garden that includes a BBQ area, tramoplene & fruit trees. The lake is just across the road, from...

We stayed here for a night booking two of the units, 3 adults and 3 kids. Very impressed with the service, accommodation and gardens - excellent! It was such a good place to stay that we booked another night for later in our holiday.

Thanks for the review on behalf of your family. We love to see and hear the kids enjoying themselves in the garden and on the reserve behind the complex. Laughter is a great sound! And now you know where we are and what we can offer your group we hope to see you again! Regards Fran - Host

The owners are very kind and went out of their way to be helpful to us. They provided us with information and a weather report for the hike we were planning to do the next day (Tongariro Alpine Crossing), and they helped us book Waitomo Caves. The room was very clean and exactly what we needed. We wouldn't dream of...

AccentTaupo, Owner at Accent on Taupo Motor Lodge, responded to this review

One of the best parts of our 'job' is assisting guests with their activities plans as we get to tell them about some of the lesser known things to see and do in the district. The Tongariro Alpine Crossing is a favourite for many guests and being able to give them up to date weather forecasts really helps them select...

Good standard place with all above average facilities. A little tired decore compared to others in Taupo but it has kiwi charm and just being across the road from the lake helps. Taupo is always worth a visit.

My husband and I stayed overnight in the guest room, which has direct access to the off-leash reserve just behind the motel. It was great to be able to have our wee pooch with us in the room (in his own playpen, with puppy training pad). Our bed was very comfy, though the pillows were a little on the firm...

We had a wonderful view of Lake Taupo, although we were in the end unit so I'm sure the other units don't have much of a view except from the porch. Our room had one bedroom with a king size bed and a living room with two twin beds. My friend and I ended up sleeping on the twin beds...

Thanks for the comprehensive review. It is appreciated as it helps others understand the property better. We work with our guest who are arriving after 9pm (normal closing time) as we do know that travel times can start late and end later. So just call us if you are going to be arriving after 9pm and we will stay open...
