We visited Taupo and stayed a night at Blackcurrant during the beginning of RWC 2011. It was a spacious ensuite with clean bathroom. The kitchen was great with all the utensils required and the staff were friendly! It is child-friendly as well. The location is very convenient there is a Pak n'Save just across it. The only downside is the room is cold even with heater on. We are glad we chose this Backpacker.
