“A real bargain and a great location”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 14 July 2010

I stayed in a double room with ensuite, which was fairly basic but comfortable and not too small - pretty good for the price. The kitchen was big and well equipped, and the staff were really helpful. There's a good range of facilities such as laundry, internet etc. Only downside was that it was a bit noisy - I needed earplugs but could still hear the music from the bar below. Plus the kitchen closed 10pm-8am which I found a bit inconvenient. I'd definitely stay again though.

4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 12 August 2009

Go Global had the best rate in town for us (we book doubles typically) and the staff was spot-on perfect! Everyone was friendly and keenly interested in helping us make the most out of our time in Taupo - and with no commissions on the line, they fight just as hard as we do to get the best deals.

We got the 'cheapie' double room, the one above the bar, so the music was a bit loud, but that's the trade-off for that one room. It was starting to get cold in NZ, but the heater was warm and the bathrooms were clean. It's also located right in the downtown CBD, near just about everything and close to the bus station.
