“Nice place to stay”
Reviewed 1 October 2013

We checked in earlier than we should have done with no problems, they give you a small carton of milk to have with tea/coffee.
The room was nice and clean but the best part was the spa bath, it was gorgeous and just what we needed after a hectic few days in New Zealand.

Found the service at reception great. Notified that we were going to be late and there was a note on reception door to inform us of our room number.
The only thing to complain about was our rubbish was not cleared we had a two night stay. Other than that was very comfortable.
We have stayed before and will return again.

We booked a 2-bedroom apartment for 27 Sept - 1 Oct. Warm and helpful reception, and unit spacious and clean. Cooking facilities a little limited for a party of three, with no easy means of expelling odours.
Staff very helpful throughout our stay. We'd certainly consider this motel again if travelling with more than two people.

Handy to town, Receptionist was lovely and very accommodating especially when daughter had a temperature on arrival and wasn't feeling flash.
Booked a one bedroom online as by email they were $10 more per night without breakfast and if booked online got cheaper rate with breakfast!
Even though it says queen bed in one room (lounge) and two singles in another it is rather misleading as the two single beds are in the main entrance of the room. Rooms are much smaller than photos on their website which I thought was a bit pricey for the size. However we would stay again.

I booked this place for a large group of friends for the weekend. It was a really cool place, awesome value for money and and awesome customer service. The in room spas are just the best after a cold day in taupo!

Great place to stay. Rachel in reception was very helpful. She even remembered us from our stay last year.
Close to town and the lake. Unit (2 bedroom, self catering) was very modern, very clean and well stocked.

Room Tip: Family units are very spacious and sunny

Great staff who couldn't be more helpful. Our room was a family room and had a separate room which was a bonus rather that all of us being in one room. It was clean and comfortable and close to town. Our breakfast the following morning was lovely. A great start to our day for our onward journey down south.
