We travelled from the Taranaki to stay in Taupo for the weekend and what an enjoyable stay it turned out to be. The suite we stayed in was warm, clean and very spacious. The hosts Alister and Charlene offered advice on things to do and suggested 2 really awesome places to visit - summed up our arty fossiking hobby! We were handy to central town and very quiet room, very handy to lovely restaurant next door which we enjoyed for the ambience and little stroll down to sit by the fire. Couldn't rate this place high enough and will definitely be back to do further exploring.

Room Tip: Book ahead as they booked out early in the afternoon as saw couple of people turned away as full. Look for the lovely lake views near the front - especially if going with another couple.

My mother and father stayed at the Cascades in 2000 when they visited New Zealand. Sadly we lost Dad in 2003, but I wanted to take Mum back to visit her brother who lives in NZ. She and Dad had loved the place it was one of the stand out places they had stayed at.

Our hosts Charlene and Alister were incredibly welcoming and accommodating. They gave us as much information as we needed to explore the area and also how to keep my 8 year old son amused. The even hooked us up with another family who were staying at the same time so the children could play together.

The hotel itself was in a quiet location about a mile and a half from the town itself. The rooms were spacious and the layout worked well for our family group. We could even accommodate all our luggage. The only let down was the decor was a bit tired, but it was immaculately clean.

At the time we commented that with a fresh coat of paint and updating curtains, carpets and bedding covers it would be perfection. However I note on the website that it was refurbished in June 2011 and is now a Comfort Inn but still with the same lovely host. So I am sure it really is a wonderful place to stay at when visiting Lake Taupo now.

We stayed in a deluxe room for 4 people with lake view on the front yard and private access to the lake. Can't find anything to complain. Great service, nice breakfast (thank to Trip Advisor we had such a decent continental breakfast for 4 of us on both dates), excellent lake view, nice facilities, good location, good size swimming pool....one of the best motel we stayed in NZ with such a reasonable price.

Owners very welcoming, room facilities excellent. Very little noise from road - slept undisturbed. Premises about 5 kms from main shopping area - excellent choice of restaurants in town & surronding motels and hotels. Stayed two nights 10th and 11th August.
Con....no onsite restaurant - breakfast served as room service if chosen.
Worth another stay on my next visit to NZ North Island.
