The people at the front desk were friendly and helpful. Our family stayed one night and the two bedroom layout was great. The air conditioning worked well as the day was rather warm. The only minor grip was the lack of working privacy locks on the toilet and bathroom.

We just stayed one night in Taupo this time and we were very pleased with the accommodation. We had a two bedroom unit with a kitchen and separate toilet and shower rooms. Wonderful experience, from start to end. Very friendly staff and very clean and comfortable. Would definitely return.

Great little motel with everything you need. Its a short walk into the small town center and a short walk down to the lake. Pretty quiet. Rooms were clean and suitable for a family of four, no problem.

We stayed in this hotel for a night on 18 December 2016. This is a good and central location to explore lake Taupo, and the Huka Falls. The Countdown Supermarket is nearby, which is most convenient. We had enjoyed our stay with all the activities nearby within the Great Lake Taupo area.

For quite a big complex you might expect a lot of noise (especially on New Years Eve) will we were pleasantly surprised. No noise from the rooms next door and all clean and well appointed. Kitchenette was small but adequate. Microwave and all the usual bids in working order. Bed comfortable, 4 pillows rather than 3 might have been slightly...

We had the pleasure of staying at Lake Taupo Motor Inn with our young family. The room was clean and perfect for the 2 young kids to share a room. It was walking distance from the lake and town centre, so an ideal location that had minimal street noise. There was lots of parking, including covered options available. The staff...

Within walking distance to city centre shops and the lake. Nice quiet neighbourhood. Nice spacious and clean room. Laundry self-service available at a very reasonable price. We stayed there for 3 nights over Christmas, and enjoyed ourselves thoroughly. Easy access to various attractions by car. Highly recommended!

We stayed in the room upstairs with the bath tub by the bed and it was awesome. Very clean, comfortable and had everything we needed. The owners there that we met were lovely as well made us feel right at home.
