Wife & I are looking at a few days in Taupo early November and want advise on Hot Pools / Accommodation please
Both the Wairekei Resort and De Bretts hotel have hot pools on site (although De bretts you still have to pay) However both of these places are not really near the centre of town....
De bretts has the advantage of having motel style accommodation that has kitchens or kitchenettes where you can prepare / cook meals, but Wairekei resort is a full hotel with restaurant and no kitchen facilities in room.
I'm favouring accommodation with cooking facilities, but wife likes the fact that the pools are free if we stay at the Wairekei resort
would we be better to stay in town and just go to the hot pools separately?
It looks like there is also another dedicated Hot Pools site near the Wairekei resort?
any advice on what hot pools are better or accommodation options would be great thanks
