Beautiful and amazingly well kept hotel right on the lake. Rooms are great, with their own bathtub, kitchenette and garden. BBQ available for guests which was really nice. Only 5min drive to the city center. Would definitely go there again!

This hotel is located towards the quieter end of the lake drive, and all the better for it. Friendly welcome from helpful host, well equipped room(s), number 9, with lake view and small kitchenette. Clean BBQ with all utensils provided, would definitely stay again.

We stayed in the Garden Cottage for 4 nights and felt spoiled by the thoughtful amenities included in our room with private courtyard, kitchenette and spa tub. Sonya was welcoming and helpful in providing information about Taupo and offered the use of kayaks, bikes and the BBQ.
