I phoned up at short notice after 9pm, and they gave me directions and stayed up for me, and put the heater on in my room.
I had a nice double room to myself with ensuite, and although this is advertised as a backpackers, it was as good if not better than some motels I've stayed in and even some budget hotels.
The location is nice and close to shops.
I can't comment on the quality of the shared backpacker rooms, but for a twin room I couldn't ask for more, and this would certainly be my preferred choice if I'm stopping over in Taupo again.
The only thing to be aware of is that many of the rooms are upstairs and if you're travelling with a suitcase rather than a backpack, you should be feeling nice and strong to drag it up the stairs.More
