The hotel owners (Alister & Charlene) are the loveliest people. They gave us a warm welcome when we arrived and showed us to our room. They explained about the local area & what there is to do (Hot, mineral pools/Jet Boat to Huka Falls/exploring the town). They gave us a town map & outlined their facilities.

You can hire bikes from here & tour round the lake; there is a heated pool & a hot tub which are clean&relaxing; they have a trampoline & free WiFi (password available from reception).

The amenities in the room are great - kettle with tea & coffee. We were given free milk on arrival so we could use this straight away. There is a hairdryer/flatscreen TV/iron/ironing board & plenty of space - including a little balcony where you can sit outside in the evening & relax.

The kitchen comprises microwave/two-ring, electric hob/fridge/sink etc. There is sufficient cutlery, crockery, utensils & washing up equipment. They have a cafetiere, toast rack and egg cups!! There are pool towels available so you don't have to use your room towels.

Cannot fault this place. The only improvements they could make would be to introduce safes into the rooms, rather than only at reception & perhaps more secure locks on the doors - although we did not feel unsafe or that our belongings were unsecure.

Overall, I would recommend this motel & would like to thank the owners for a pleasant stay.

Very much enjoyed our stay here despite the circumstances. Hosts were lovely and extremely helpful when we had to find a medical centre for our baby and when our toddler fell out of car seat onto the concrete. Use of highchair and stair gate made a big difference to the ease of stay. Rooms clean and quiet, beds very comfortable. Location great, close to the lake, and swimming pool clean and warm.

Very pleasant people running a comfortable well run motel. The rooms don't look out to the lake due to the long design of the property.

This is a wonderful little spot near the Taupo Sailing Center. We got a great room with a spa bath, kitchenette and comfy bed and flat screen TV for NZ$130. The family who runs it went out of their way to give us everything we needed included fresh milk for our coffee and loaning us a DVD player so we could finally watch Lord of the Rings. They also have a pool and a hot tub and lake access. Excellent place!
