Great friendly welcome on arrival.
Good touch to have fresh milk provided for tea and coffee.
Rooms were very clean and had all that we needed.
Easy walk to town centre where there are loads of eateries.

Thank you for your review of us after after your recent stay with us, and we are pleased that you found both the staff to be warm and welcoming, but also that the rooms meet or exceeded your expectation when it came to the facilities on offer and the cleanliness of them. We are very fortunate to have the location we do, just a block back from the lake front but also only a couple of blocks from town itself making it an easy walk to most things.
We hope that you had a wonderful remainder of your trip through New Zealand.

The place doesn't look like much from the outside, but the rooms are generously sized and contain everything you need for your stay. The owners were very helpful with tips and advice about the local area and they certainly run an excellent business that is clean and homely. We would definitely come back!

We are so pleased that you found the location just a block back from the lake across Kaimanawa Reserve to be a nice convenient spot for your time in Taupo. Great that you liked the size and feel of spaciousness in the unit, and the condiments and facilities provided met all of your needs. A lot of people comment about our WiFi, and we are pleased to be able to offer a bit more than a lot of properties in New Zealand. We understand you don't get to travel New Zealand that often but thank you for your review after your stay with us and we look forward to being of service to you again should you return through Taupo.
