Comfortable, quiet and a good sized room for the price. Fantastic having an air conditioning and a seperate bedroom with a private outside area. Easy walk to town, restaurants and the waterfront. We’d stay again.

We stayed over the weekend, in a last minute booking after a cancellation at another place ( which they didnt tell us about until we turned up yay!) We were greeted warmly at the reception, and we quickly provided a room, much to our excitement after a long drive and above events mentioned, And it was just what we needed, a nice quite and homely place, clean, warm and within 5 min walking distance from down town Taupo. We relaxed with a nice Spa later that evening, and were very thankful for the excellent service shown by the host We recommend this place! Nice and easy and right in the middle of town!

This was a one night stop for me whilst working. The motel is clean, basic, and well priced. Don't expect The Ritz, but it is perfectly adequate. I was on a ground unit at the end of the building and it was quiet.

I usually try not to stay anywhere under 4 stars, but being last minute and peak holiday time, we had to take what we could. We wanted two bedrooms as we had our teenage daughter with us. This limited us even more. The prices were exorbitant compared to normal rates. The motel is in need of some major refurbishment as it appears to be of 90’s vintage, and looks a bit rundown from the outside. The rooms however were clean and were serviced everyday. The beds were very uncomfortable and gave me a sore back. The washing facilities are communal and are closed at 8pm, which is not good if you have been out all day doing holiday stuff. We also had a problem with ants in the kettle, and power points working one minute and then not the next. It’s situated within easy walking distance to restaurants and shops. The hosts were very nice and accommodating.

Clean facility but not cleared thoroughly as we found a work overall left by the previous occupants. We stayed in a 2 bedroom unit furnished with Sky TV and basic cooking utensils. Reception was polite however, their main office has a very strong curry odour when notices slapped in each room forbidding these sort of cooking. Spa was small, located in a shed opposite the main stay. There's enough room for 4 grown ups to soak for 30mins per session - booking required. Wifi coverage was very limited as they piggyback off a 3rd party hotspot provider in the area. Data allowance is limited as we're given vouchers with codes for 500mb limit; I believe you could request this when it runs out. Laundry room consist of a 10-15 year old coin operated washer and dryer. I believe there are other accommodations in Taupo which will offer better value for money.
