“Beautiful views, great location and very good value for money”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 15 September 2013 via mobile

This Motel gives very good value for money. The rooms are immaculately clean and serviced daily, facilities are good with a nice little kitchen area. Free wi-fi and daily papers are great. The hosts are really lovely people, friendly and helpful with nothing being a problem.
Would definitely stay here again.

We stayed at this hotel for one night, whilst travelling through. It was in a great location, on the lake and was a good distance from the town. The pool is outdoor and is very small. We did not try the pool, it was too cold!
The room was small, but clean and had a fridge and tea making facilities. Contact with staff was limited, but they were helpful and friendly. Free WiFi and on site parking was a bonus

Booked at the last last minute, this room ticked most of the boxes. It was quiet and comfortable. The view from our room was impeccable. Decor is a little tired but very clean. Bathroom was newer and shower was pretty good. Good value for money - especially with the million dollar view. ten min walk to town. Will recommend.

I am unable to find words to descibe the amazing hospitality that was given to us during our stay in Taupo at the Tui Oaks Motor Inn!!!
Kitchen, bedrooms and bathrooms very clean and serviced daily.
Fantastic views over the Lake if your room is on the lakeside.
Very little traffic noise as heavy vehicles nowq use the by pass.

Room Tip: Swimming pool looked great even though I did not swim in it.

Stayed one night here, we had a room overlooking the lake with views of the mountains in the distance. Although the room was also overlooked the main highway, the traffic noise wasn't a problem for us. Tidy room but getting a little tired, very pleasant staff, and walking distance from bars and restaurants.

2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 15 April 2013

As there is now a road for trucks to bypass Taupo, we chose a room with a view of the lake thinking it would be quiet at night. Big mistake as there was still a lot of noise from trucks going through. Our accommodation (lounge area and kitchenette as well as bedroom and bathroom) was OK. Very spacious and clean but definitely looked a bit 'tired' and in need of attention. The bathroom was OK although the bath had a rather large chip in the enamel making it look a bit scruffy. The shower was over the high sided bath and would therefore be hard for some to climb into! There was an oldish looking non-slip bathmat to use which was rolled up on the side of the bath. All in all - a bit disappointing.

Room Tip: Choose a room overlooking the pool!
