Very clean. Every amenity you could possibly need. Comfortable beds. Nice and quiet- little bit of road noise but nothing intrusive. We thoroughly enjoyed our stay and would stay again. Seamless and simple remote check in system.

We've stayed in a lot of places in Taupo over the years, but this was by far the best equipped, cleanest and most conveniently located that we've ever stayed in. Definitely our new favourite place to stay in Taupo from now on.
