I enjoyed my time here. Nice restaurant too. There is free parking around the side of the hotel which we took advantage of. I would make sure to specify you want a room with a view before you book. We were on the first floor and just got to look at some hedges.

HOTEL’S FAVOURITE REVIEW
Reviewed 30 December 2016

We stayed 8 nights over Christmas in a 3 bedroom apartment and loved it. Booked forever in advance (11 months!) so got a crazy good rate which may have helped our good feeling overall - if we'd paid full rack rate I mightve been abit pickier - afew scuffs on the walls, average water pressure etc... The 3 bedroom apartment...

Totally recommended for a visit to Taupo. Great location, wonderful rooms and excellent restaurant. Great staff - thank you. Swimming pool is a bit cold but the hot pool is nice and warm. However, consider Debretts hot pools next door.

We stayed in a three bedroom apartment which was fantastic. The living area was huge and the views from the balcony were beautiful. Breakfast was great and had loads of variety so I would highly recommend including this as there isn't too much within walking distance of the hotel. Overall, a brilliant base for Lake Taupo.

Our stay at the Hilton Lake Taupe was great! The staff was incredibly friendly... There was one staff member in particular, I believe her name was Fei (the Filipino receptionist) who really made our stay even better. She was very professional and helpful and didn't hesitate to answer any of our questions or needs. The Executive Room we stayed in...

Stayed here as a treat and we were not disappointed. Our room exceeded our expectations and it was spotlessly clean. Dined in the restaurant and rated the food 10/10. Excellent service, staff and accommodation - would highly recommend

We last stayed (and reviewed) this hotel just over a year ago. Nothing has changed since, it is still recommended. Excellent evening meal and comprehensive breakfast choices. Although the outside parking is free it would be nice if the lower unsecured car park was sealed given the hotel room rate. Secure parking is available. Ideally it is best to have...

We spent 2 nights at the Hilton whilst visiting Lake Taupo and had a 1 bedroom apartment. The hotel was immaculate with every facility one could want and the staff were superb.
