“Great, friendly accomodation”
Reviewed 11 July 2014

I just stayed here for 2 nights stayed in a room with a king and single bed, and a spa tub in the room. Rooms are clean, I had a cooked breakfast delivered both mornings which was included in the price. Very spacious rooms, had a balcony. Would go back for sure. Friendly lady at reception and happy to help.

Room Tip: I was in room 14

We had a lovely stay in the small, but clean and modern 1 room motel. The location was close to town and easy to find. The staff in the office were welcoming. We had a complimentary breakfast which was on time and delicious. We had a lovely time and would stay again

Got a room here on wotif for $130 including a cooked breakfast delivered to our room. Very comfortable, tasty breaky and delightful service. The only thing I would mention is that the pillows were a little hard, but I'm really fussy with my pillow!

Good location, walking distance to town. The room was very clean and tidy and had a wonderful view of the lake & mountain. The breakfast included in the room rate was nice enough. Only negative was the mattress on the bed was old and had springs poking out which made it fairly uncomfortable and caused roll together. The two other couples we traveled with experienced the same problem with the beds in their rooms.

Close to shops and cafes. Reasonably priced and very clean. Reception friendly but professional. Lounge furniture looking shabby but other units did have more robust leather furniture. Nice and
quiet.Would stay again.

Had previously stayed here with family and this time we arrived here late in the day without booking. Greeted by helpful staff who, when we asked for a one bedroom unit explained they only had two bedroom left but could give it to us at a reduced price. Great service. The unit was very clean and tidy with comfortable bedding. Will definitely choose this next time we come to Taupo

We have stayed here 3 times before and always find it to be comfortable and good value. This time we stayed in one of the 2 bedroom units for 2 nights. They are in a single storey block of 8 units immediately adjacent to the main 2 storey block. The unit was fine for us but for 4 people may be a bit on the small side. Car parking is right outside the unit door with 12 spaces for the 8 units ( but there is always the main parking should you be unlucky enough to be there when other units have more than 1 car). There is a small outside table and 2 chairs for each apartment but there is pathetically limited space between your car and the front of the unit and the view is of your car! Cooked breakfast is NOT included in the tariff for 2 bedroom units. I should have noticed that on booking and when I enquired, I was told that cooked breakfast wasn't included on 2 bedroom units because they were already such a good bargain. Not sure I can agree with that when all of the other units get cooked breakfast included when booked on-line.
The unit was a bit dark and gloomy which is often the case with ground floor units everywhere. It was though well equipped, clean and comfortable. flat screen TV had a very limited range of channels.. really just a basic TV service.
I have been a bit nit picking on this review but overall it is good, comfortable and ideal for a short stay. Wouldn't want to be here for a week though.Reception staff friendly and helpful.
