We made the mistake of leaving our Kindle and some headphones in our room when we left early in the morning to go to a wedding. When I went back a couple of hours later to collect the missing gear, it was gone.
I scoured our car, our baggage, the linen which had been taken out of the bedroom and checked everywhere we had been in Taupo. I had been reading the Kindle in bed the night before and the only place it could have been was in our room at Astro Accomodation. Long story short, it turns out our stuff had been stolen, most likely by the cleaner (who would not look me in the eye and was very keen to get away when I questioned her about the missing gear). The motel manager Debbie, who was actually very good, acknowledged as much when I talked to her about it later that day. She said she would call the police, at the owner's advice.
The room was okay, if small, and the bed comfortable. But having your stuff stolen kind of outweighs any of that. Don't go here.
