Travellers' Choice
Sails On The Lake (Sails Lake Taupo) is just across the road from the main beach on Lake Taupo and most of our rooms have spectacular views of the lake and the mountains beyond. We are just a short drive or stroll to the town centre and very close to all Taupo attractions.

Really enjoyed our weekend stay here. Had a 1 bedroom unit at the back with a part lake view but it was fine being away from busy road. Very clean and well equipped kitchenette. Owners were really friendly and even gave us extra towels for swimming in the lake, which was just across the road (dig down and find warm water). Highly recommend this place. Loved our visits from the cat too 😁😁

My famiy of 4 adults and 1 child celebrated New Years day in a great accommodation about a 20 minute walk from CBD. This motel was located across from the lakefront and the summer weather was another plus at the time.

Nicely located right opposite a swimming area on lake Taupo. Nice and friendly staff. Some of the light switches were upside down, not a big deal tho. We booked a lake view, room which it was, as long as no one was parked in the car park.

Me and a friend, booked in here as we had to attend a funeral down in Waiouru. It was late August, winter and we were well received as soon as we arrived at the reception. Our rooms were spotlessly clean. Fantastic views of the lake and central to Taupo shopping centre, bars and restaurants. But the cherry on the top was that the room was nice and warm, the heaters were turned on previously before we arrived. Arthur and Karen were excellent hosts. We decided to stay another night. I will definitely be back.

A relaxing mid winter break at this well equipped motel. Lovely lake view from our unit. Full kitchen - well equipped for us to cook dinner and enjoy the quiet. Heat pump worked well to warm the unit during a cold week . Beds were very comfortable . Welcoming staff.
