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.
Learn more about our review moderation.

Clean and comfy room with a great view of Lake Taupo and the mountains beyond. Easy walk into town to enjoy many types of cuisine Steps are a pain , but for one night it’s ideal. Staff were great and understanding . The room has everything you need and is nicely set out

Excellent location by the lake front and close to shops, cafes and restaurants. The Motel was very clean and the bed was comfortable. The kitchenette was basic but more than adequate for our needs. The owner was very friendly and helpful and responded quickly to requests when we asked.

Great room - one kingsize bed upstairs and a queensize bed downstairs -jacuzzi in upstairs bedroom and super view of the Lake . Not much noise from the road. Water pressure was excellent . Only thing that would make ot perfect would be a door at the stairs for privacy. ( and champagne glasses -just because bubbles are just best in bubble glasses 😝Pool could use a clean but to be fair it is winter and no one uses it :) very friendly staff . We got an upgrade so always happy with that !

We were forced to book this room as one of the only available alternatives after a cyclone closed all roads leading to Hawke’s Bay. While the town of Taupo seems like a fun place for recreational activities (fishing, boating, cycling, IronMan competition, etc.), it generally seems to offer much better lodging than this property. While the location was convenient, near the CBD and lake, the rooms and clientele left a lot to be desired. The walls were paper thin, the neighboring guests were loud and in general seemed sketchy. On the bright side, the room was clean and sanitary. Free on-site parking and swimming pool with above ground 6 person spa tub (neither of which were used by us). The seating area directly outside our sliding glass door was narrow and shared in common with all other adjoining rooms which provided zero privacy but abundant opportunities for second-hand smoke. Not our first choice.

Good location near waterfront and restaurants. Own parking space. Very tired - needs refurbishment. Outside areas shoddy. Good double upstairs. Twin was adequate - on small side. Definitely not 4 star as described on booking.com

Very noisy on a busy intersection and with no double glazing. Young people yelling and loud talking during the night. View is the back of Briscoes. While it has had a recent paint job the place needs a lot of work outside. Just plain scruffy. Expensive for what it is.

Glad I found this property on a TripAdvisor search. So much roomier than a standard hotel room. Conveniently located, a quick walk to all the shops and restaurants.Beds are comfortable. Parking is pretty tight but at least you're guaranteed a spot. Will for sure stay here next time I'm in the region.

Boris is a Fantastic Owner/Manager.Presented me with a bottle of Red due to the fact our room was not ready because staff were away sick. Also told us we could book out later the next day to compensate for the late check in. Thanks Boris you are the man. Could not fault anything. Close to Restaurants and shopping. FABULOUS VIEW from our room. We will be back for sure.

This was our second stay here. Clean, comfortable, great location on the waterfront and walking distance to shops and restaurants. In summer we enjoyed the pool, in winter we snuggled up under the heat pump. You can't go wrong!
