Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

What’s not to like. Cathy was a lovely host who welcomed us so well. The mini house we had was very spacious for the 6 of us. The kitchen had enough appliances that we were able to cook a lovely meal. The location is spot on. 3/4/5 minute walk to everything you need. Fresh towels after one night and I think the lovely Cathy even washed out cups bless her, clean, friendly, great views of Lake Taupo (depending on which side you’re on)... If you’re a group or family this is perfect. Don’t go past here if you’re needing a comfy night in Taupo.

We were looking for accomodation based on price and nearness to town, and this place delivered. It's an older style motel, with everything you'd expect and a few extra's that were very nice - insect spray, toiletries in the bathroom and real milk in the fridge. And it was immaculately clean. The beds were good and the shower hot, with nice towels supplied. There was a table and chairs outside the unit, and off street parking. A comprehensive breakfast was available on request. Totally recommend !

We had a 2 bedroom with cooking facilities. Upstairs is the living area with a view of the lake and mountain with snow on the peak. Ideal for walks and near shops (when open. After lockdown The owner has been very helpful and neighbours also.

I have stayed numerous times at this delightful motel in Taupo.
Whether it be to safely lock my motorcycle away in their garage, the peace and quiet the area has to offer, or the consistent cleanliness of the units; I always look forward to my next visit. Thanks Cathy, always an excellent stay.

Very clean place to stay shame there was no mountain view as we had a back room. Overkill of old dressing tables etc which detracted from the room. Very comfy bed and nice shower nice very help full people on reception. Handy to main shopping center.

Run by Cathy and Kunio.
Cathy checked us in and made us very welcome, she let me have free WiFi so I could let 'the kids' know where we were.
Reasonably priced, the motel was good value for money.
An easy walk into town or to the lake.
We stayed for two nights.
Cathy let my wife use their laundry facilities and washing line for a few dollars.
We were on the ground floor, in a clean, bright, basic, motel room. It had an ensuite and good facilities for tea coffee, TV etc.
The car was parked outside.
We would recommend this motel.

I had a couple of days to go fishing whilst on a NZ business trip. I decided hook up with local guide Kunio, Fly Fishing Ninja. Kunio set us up in his accommodation at Mountain View Motel in Taupo which was fantastic. Plenty of room and the perfect fly fishing accommodation in region. Kunio gave us tips on places to fish and we engaged Kunio as a guide for a day on the Tongariro river. The local knowledge was well worth it and many fish were landed. I would thoroughly recommend Kunio his experience and knowledge of the area is invaluable. This is a flyfishers paradise 🤙🏻
