HOTEL’S FAVOURITE REVIEW
Reviewed 27 February 2017

We stayed here for just one night upon arrival in NZ. Thus, we were pretty tired! The hotel graciously upgraded us to a killer one-bedroom apartment room, complete with a balcony with dining seating and a full kitchen with laundry facilities. They even gave us free covered parking. The view of the lake from the room was incredible! Nicely, it...

I'm disappointed to write only a 3 star review for this hotel. We stayed here two separate nights during our trip to and from Napier. The first night, we received an upgrade to an apartment suite (which is incredible) and the staff couldn't be more helpful. Our second night the property was at full capacity as they hosted a conference,...

I have stayed at the Hilton on numerous occasions and the service is excellent, the food is beautiful I had breakfast every day which I couldn't fault and I had a Caesar salad and that was beautiful.

The staff at Taupo Hilton were extremely helpful. Provided advice on local attractions, and discounts available for some attractions. Make sure to book a Lake View room. Lovely restaurant for dinner, breakfast or High Tea

This is a fantastic hotel. We were on the 4th floor in a 3 bed apartment. Views from both sides were amazing and the apartment is very spacious. Kitchen is fully equipped and includes a washer and dryer. Request room 141 and you won't be disappointed.

The hotel is beautiful. The staff is friendly and helpful. Our room was large and very clean. We were pleasantly surprised to be upgraded to a Jr. Suite with a private balcony! We really enjoyed our stay, wish we could have stayed longer!

A really nice hotel with pleasant views of Lake Taupo. Personally, I felt it was good value for money, the room was spacious and the staff throughout the hotel were extremely pleasant and helpful. Food and service in the dining room were good.

Two weeks ago my Partner and I ended up making a spontaneous nights' stay during some abysmal weather. Up till 1.30 am the night before and rising before 7 am that same day, we were moving house from Auckland to Hastings - a 5-6 hour drive. After many weather related delays with trucks, packing and inspections we only managed to...
