“Good basic accommodation”
Reviewed 20 February 2013

Basic motel accommodation but very clean and room had everything we needed. We’d come to Taupo for a concert so was a perfect place to stay for a weekend and was close to the shop, lake and the concert venue. Great value for money and friendly staff.

Reviewed 10 January 2013

We stayed at this motel on 26th December 2012 and had a great stay. Apparently it's been under new management since November and they have done a lot of improvements. The rooms and furnishings are older style, however there was a brand new kitchen and bathroom and it was very spacious and comfortable and a short walk from the lake. Very reasonably priced. We had the end unit on the office side with nice windows and a nice green outlook. No noise problems, nice to be able to park the car right outside the window. Friendly management. And everything in our room was spotlessly clean, couldn't fault it. The only one thing was that having a nice sharp chopping knife in the room would have made cooking easier. Anyway, we will definitely return.

Reviewed 25 October 2012

We stayed at this hotel in October and found it to be a clean comfortable. This is an older style Motel but handy to the main shopping center and walking distance to the lake. My main perquisite was a comfortable bed and I was very happy. Our host was warm and friendly too. I would definitely stay here again.

Room Tip: don't have one

Budget conscious people who still like immaculate clean motel rooms and a friendly helpful staff should stay here! During the summer the lake is a walk away and its close to town, so saves money on Taxis and the walk is minimal. I will be back again!!

Room Tip: Room 10 has the view!

Reviewed 18 March 2010

This motel was reasonably priced, clean and had good cooking facilities. If economy is your top prioity then this is the place for you. The rooms we had were $180 per night and slept up to six people. On the negative side there was no room in the living area for a couch, only one comfy chair. Also there were no laundry facilities. The biggest problem was that it backs on to a very busy road and the water pipes were noisy, not to mention the neighbours. If you choose to stay here I recommend you ask for a unit on the office side of the motel away from the road.
