Stayed in Taupo for a sporting event. The unit was beautifully appointed. The bed was very comfortable and unit very clean. Every detail has been thought of with bathroom products, dishwasher and washing machine down to the sensor lights in bathroom. Keypad entry was excellent. Location excellent and very quiet. Lovely private outdoor courtyard to use. Will definitely be returning. Would highly recommend.

Hawera, New Zealand7 contributions1 helpful vote
Everything about this place was easy and no stress. Having the room code texted to us prior to arriving, meant there was no need to check in on arrival and the text came through in the morning, which also meant we could go to the room as soon as we arrived, without having to wait for a check in time. The use of a pin pad rather than a key or swipe card was a great addition too. No chance of losing your key. The unit itself was extremely comfortable having a separate bedroom and it looked like it had been recently renovated with an awesome kitchen if you were staying longer. The addition of a bowl with fruit and Easter eggs was a nice surprise. The toiletries were awesome, and tge unit beautifully clean. Easy walk to our favourite Dixie Browns.Only negative would be the bed was a bit hard for us, but that's a personal thing I guess. Thanks for the great stay, definitely will be back.

We were just passing through Taupo and needed accommodation for 1 night. eMotel offered very good prices for a motel that was situated so close to town. eMotel is very clean, well laid out and an all-round perfect place to stay - I would highly recommend it. Everything is hassle-free from booking to access and paying with good communication throughout.

Have just had a wonderful stay at the E Motel Taupo. It was family reunion so we occupied all the units. Very well appointed and lots of lovely personal touches. Touchpad entry was great, no searching in handbags for key/swipe card. Very handy to town and lovely restaurant only 4 mins walk away. Lovely host and would definitely stay again.
