The location, superb views of the lake. the sunset was breathtaking, meters far away to the new walkway around the lake. Friendly staff, clean room and courtyard with BBQ facility, very quiet and comfortable!

Awesome location right on the shores of lake Taupo but the room was very much overpriced and lacked the basic comforts, ie air conditioning , room was very stuffy and couldn’t leave windows open due to security concerns with the unfavourable long term tenants right next door, our room was right next to the pool and you could see into it from the pool, one particular guest as mentioned spent a good 2 hours in the pool just creepily moving around the sides with his shades on, drinking alcohol ( of which he even bought his own chilly bag full of alcohol and placed by the poolside ) and looking in our direction the whole time, was very unnerving, later 2 dodgy looking males jumped the pool gate and were door knocking on all units, shortly after cops turned up and were dealing with the long term tenants that live on site right next to the motel units, later we found out that it was being used to house the homeless. These units are right next to the motel units, units that are charged out at $270 for a night, definitely not worth that money considering the element of people right next door that potentially posed a security risk as we experienced Friendly owners but not worth the money

Response from Robertson, Owner at Cascades Lakefront Motel
Responded 2 weeks ago
Hi Natasha, thanks for your comments, I think it may have some misinformation here: we were disturbed by 2 drunk teenage from outside who knocked the door to ask for cigarette and jumped over our fence. We called the police and the cops arrived soon, sorry for the inconvenience caused to you, these two young man were reported in Taupo Noticeboard that they even vandalized the public toilet nearby the Taupo Lake, we are victim as well. Most of our guests are very nice and friendly here, we are lucky and delighted to have them, thank you!

Carpets are covered in fleas!! Photo of my 4 year old daughter. When I complain to the owners I was asked to leave well they bug boomed and to return in 2 hours. Serviced fortnight. I spoken with other guests and have been told by each of them they have also seen flees in the rooms. No apology for the bites all over myself or child. Cant belive it never have I ever !
