Good location across from the lake. Nice restaurant bar a few steps.We have to say that we probably would have overlooked the motel but now with a pet this motel was our choice in Taupo.Some units are pet friendly. Whilst small as a studio we made it work even in the rain.Hosts helpful friendly. Units are not flash but clean.
I'm always anxious booking motels because you never know but was so glad I chose this one. Beautiful location, beautiful room, a short walk from the lake and town. Great recommendations from the owner. Didn't want the trip to end to be honest!
I loved that it was well set up for traveling with pets, and we weren't subjected to a barrage of rules. I also rate the shower a full 5*****. Across the road is a lively pub/pizza joint which is also dog friendly (though if only take smaller well socialised dogs).
We recently spent 3 nights staying here. The units (2 x one bedroom) were very clean, well appointed and had everything that we needed. We travelled with 3 adults and 7 children and the location was perfect, close to the 2 Mile Bay Sailing Club Cafe and a short drive into town for dinner and not far from De Bretts hot pools. We enjoyed our morning walks around the lake and two of the older children enjoyed using the motel bikes for a ride around the beautiful lake front. Thanks for your hospitality Jill & Julian, we will definitely be back!
What a memorable stay....great location lakeside with a pizza cafe bar across the road, dog friendly with a Reserve behind and the lake boardwalk (plenty of exercise area), Warm friendly hosts...taking the time to chat and welcome us, exceptionally clean & comfy unit. Highly recommend....will definitely be back & hopefully for a longer stay! Thankyou Jill & Julian! Kind regards Jackie & Kieran Keane
We booked the dog friendly unit, very comfortable, private, quiet & clean, across the road to the lake and a short stroll to a waterfront bar & pizza spot which was also dog friendly. Our hosts were very welcoming, we were travelling from the Sth Island to our new home further North, with two cars, a trailer, & two dogs they happily sorted secure off street parking for us. Wouldn’t hesitate to reccommend these guys, thanks for making our travels so easy.
Another one night stop over heading south from Auckland, this time with friends, there is no lake view from you units deck but crossing the road there is the boat shed with excellent views. We had a meal boat shed 👍. The units are very clean and warm with a large bathroom and a small kitchenette, also set back off the road we didn’t hear any road noise. The operators are great very friendly, it is a bit to far to walk back to town we would stay again here.
Having Pats family reunion in Taupo we checked out accommodation and stayed at Accent on Taupo. Jill & Julian made us most welcome showed all 3 of us our room right at the front. Explained that RWC was on Channel 66 and to enjoy our stay. The unit was spotlessly clean and had everything we needed. Great views of the lake across the road so we rested before the reunion on Saturday. Spent 2 nights there and would be happy to stay again. It was nice seeing the Austrailan, Fijian and South African flags flying to encourage RWC fever. Julian & Jill keep up the good standards, it is appreciated & makes staying there feel homely.
What a location, we were a sports team staying for Tournament week. The owners are incredibly friendly and helpful. We had the Lakehouse which was awesome as we could have our meetings there and cook the teams meals. You have all you need here for couples to large groups. I cannot say enough about the owners they assisted in finding us dinner for a large group at a discount to coming down and watching our football games. they were part of the team. There are bikes to ride, location across the road from the lake, great cable TV choice, electric blankets on the beds for those cold nights in Taupo, you have it all . You will not be disappointed with your stay here. Coach St Bedes College 1st XI Football
Finding accommodation with two dogs is always hard but here you are made to feel welcome and told about all the good areas to take your dogs so you can enjoy a great weekend away. The place is clean, tidy and comfortable.
