We scored a fabulous deal for two nights, with a King room and breakfast included. In terms of value for money, it couldn't be faulted. The breakfast buffet was extensive, including hot and cold options. It was the same both mornings, so may get boring if you stayed for long, but the quality was fine. Our room had a nice balcony overlooking an internal courtyard. It was hot while we were there, but the aircon worked fine. There are two out door pools. We only tried one, which was beautifully warm at around 35 degrees. Very pleasant to relax in after a day out hiking Mt Pureora. The only complaint we have about our room is that the bed was a bit old and sleep quality could certainly be improved with a new mattress. Every movement by my husband was felt like a tidal wave across the bed! Also, the carpets in the foyer, stairwell and corridors of our accommodation block were threadbare and well past their use by date. Nevertheless, we enjoyed our stay and would return - especially at the price we paid!

Hotel's Favourite
We have just returned from a faultless stay at the Wairakei Resort Hotel. Room, breakfast and dinner over two nights was exceptional and unbeatable value for money. The grounds were immaculate as was the 9 hole golf course. Great mountain bike tracks onsite and also in nearby Taupo. This hotel has done a wonderful job post Level 4 Covid lockdown and is encouraging kiwis to return to the hotel with exceptional pricing and marketing. Hence the hotel was at capacity with a range a ages and young families enjoying the facilities. Keep up the great work team, you are leading by example.

We had a relaxing stay. Was a easy place to meet family half way. The pools were great, especially being able to swim after dinner and later. Rooms were clean, good beds and nice toiletries. And didnt have to drive to dinner. Food was good value. Staff very helpful. Getting a little tired but still a good choice. Will definitely return.

We came down for a couples weekend. The room was a little dated but had everything we needed. The thing that made the stay so great was the staff. Every single staff member we dealt with with so helpful and made such a huge effort to be accommodating. The staff are 5 stars in themselves. And the food is so delicious we ate there for both dinners. Would def stay again!

We stayed in one of the chalets, though older it was clean and comfortable. I had no idea how large the Wairakei Resort complex was and amazed on how many people it could cater for. The grounds were immaculate. The lap pool was a great place to cool off and relax. The food was first class and could not fault the dinner service or the quality of the food. Breakfast equally as good. I would have no hesitation on recommending the Wairakei Resort Taupo and hope we have the opportunity to stay there again.
