Stayed here on the off chance. Although old style it was very clean, spacious and very comforable. Being a few blocks from the lake, can't see that when you are asleep anyway, the price was better suited to us.

Nearly two weeks ago, we were in Taupo and decided to stay a couple of nights and didn't want to pay the price's right on the water. Went to the i centre and they recommended the Chevron. We stayed up on the first floor which gave us a view out across the roof tops to the lake and snow covered... More

We stayed here as a couple with two friends and the two bedroom and living room layout worked well for us. The Chevron is 10 minutes tops walk from the Great Lakes Event Centre so great if you're in town for an event. It's handy to restaurants, take out branches and supermarkets. There is everything in the kitchen to enable... More

Not happy with the way I was spoken to and treated. Will never stay here or recommend this hotel because of the rude behaviour of the hoteliers. Sad really as the room was very clean but that is a credit to the housekeepers. Being in the same industry I'm almost embarrassed for you. Not letting it ruin a perfect night... More

stayed one night and the owners were very helpful. Room was absolutely immaculate. Very spacious and great value for money. Cooked in our room in the well equipped kitchenette. Handy location, just one street back from the lake and very quiet.Would stay again.

This is a great place to stay in Taupo. Very generous sized bedroom and lounge. Great kitchenette, shower and bathroom. Would not hesitate to recommend this to anyone looking for a place to stay. We stayed there a week and had a great time exploring all around the lake area.

Close to Pak and Save, and the hotel had cooking facilities, so we bought our dinner there and then cooking by ourselves. Good choices. They had their own pool spa, and you need to write down the room number for booking. quite nice. have free wifi just for 2 or 3 hours. Well, not too big deal, but if you... More

This is a great place to stay, clean, walking distance (5 minutes) to town, off street parking, warm in winter and friendly hosts, top notch, and reasonably priced too so there isn't anything negative you could possibly say about the Chevron. We'll stay there again for sure next time we're in Taupo
