My son and I working on a new Power Station near by decided at the last minute that this hotel would be ok. Friendly welcome by the owner/manager Adrian and team. Upon seeing our studio we decided to upgrade to a chalet (middle 1 of 3) and for the extra 30 per night. More room all round, comfy beds with electric blankets and a spa bath. Adequate kitchen for meals and making next day lunches.
Negatives would be the numerous cobwebs, large stain on 1 of the sheets, poor sound proofing between ajoining chalets and general tired appearance. Obviously one of the older accomodation joints in Taupo. The maintenance program will be long and costly one.
Overall I would recommend in its current condition definetely a place for the lads, trades and not so for the couples for a romantic getaway. We did think the 'Hills Have Eyes' was occurring at 3am on our last night - turned out to be an overgrown possum on our roof :-)More
