Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed 16 April 2014

My wife and I stayed here with a friend 14th-16th April.
Patrons were very helpful, and the accommodation was really clean and comfortable.
Great value for money, we will certainly stay here again next time we are visiting Taupo.

We stayed here during the week and the place was fairly quiet, but even still the noise from the people in the pool at 9pm was enough to keep my young daughter from going to sleep. All the family rooms have a mezzanine bedroom upstairs which made it very difficult for getting a little person to sleep (as there were four of us in the room and with no door to shut out the noise the rest of our party had to be practically silent to facilitate sleep). The wall of the mezzanine floor seemed very low and I felt it was dangerous with a young one. We pushed the beds against the opposite wall, but still it didn't feel safe. There were tacks coming out of the stairs and both myself and my daughter cut our toes/heals on these tacks....not good at all! The kitchenette was very small and fairly basic, but workable. Overall I think this property is a bit tired and in need of a makeover. I wouldn't stay here again and wouldn't recommend it for families. Positives were a lovely location near the lakeside and easy to find on SH1.

The comfort inn was a lovely place to stay. The owners were lovely and very accomadating.
The room was spacious the only thing to complain about would be the position of the tv downstairs it made it very difficult to watch - would be better on the wall

Overall a really good place to stay and a great price!

Thank you for having us :)

Great place to stop off at. We had two nights here and the accommodation was practical and comfortable. There was a launderette which is always useful on a round the world trip. It had a swimming pool, although we didn't get time to use it as there was much to do around the area. Just a little walk to the Lake and had great walking/cycle routes. Reasonable stroll into Taupo town, which is a lovely little place. The owners were lovely and very helpful.

Right on the lakeside, this is a very pleasant place to stay. Manager was very helpful and accommodation was spacious - extra bedroom and bathroom on a mezzanine floor. Kitchen is basic but that wasn't a problem. You can walk into Taupo but it's about 2 miles, albeit a lovely walk along the lakeside. Didn't use the pool but it would be good for families. Laundry is a bit small (queue for the drier) but again, we managed. Sat on our little patio with a glass of wine and watched the boats on the lake. Lovely stay.

This is the second time we have stayed with Cascades. The hosts can not do enough for their guests - they are great!! We were given a lakeview room but that meant stairs - no problem gave us a really nice suite. I had rung with a request for 3 rooms as we travelled with US guests - all were very tired after a busy week down south and heading for Auckland and our small dog was not a probolem once we signed the required document

Would stay here again - no discussion!!! :O)
Thanks for making our one night stay as nice as you did and lewtting us haave the "little fluffy ruffler" stay with us

Room Tip: ask nicely for a "room with a view"
