We love to spend time in Taupo, there are so many things to do and see. Our room had a Spa bath and a lovely view of the lake. It was close to the centre of the city but just a scoot away from the hustle and bustle. We will definitely stay here again on our next visit.

Room tip: The room was clean and cosy and the bed and pillows were comfortable.

Had an adjoining room, kids in one and us in the other. Good place to stay, was clean and tidy. Bed was very comfortable. Nice location with a beautiful view. Had everything we needed, can't complain. Would definitely stay again.

We needed a place with two bedrooms (couple and a single), and this was the best place we stayed on a 2-week trip in NZ. Comfy bed, modern bathrooms, large kitchen, and to top it off, there is a washer AND clothes dryer in the apartment (we rejoiced about the dryer--they are not standard when traveling in NZ). The view from the room was great, too, and the host friendly and helpful. The only thing we found to be lacking was comfortable living room furniture, but this was the case every place we stayed. Note that this place is not an easy walk to town. It's doable if you have the time and energy, but it's not right on the edge of the main shopping and restaurant area. Do eat at Portofino--it was the best meal we had in Taupo. And if you're going to soak at Wairakei Terraces, skip the geyser walk. Not worth the money.
