“Just what I needed”
Reviewed 23 March 2014

I recently stayed at this Motor Lodge in Taupo. I arrived early and the room was ready for me to check in at no extra cost which was fantastic. Everything was clean, the room was well-equipped and spacious. The shower was the only let-down, there was just nothing but a dribble coming out of it. I had a great sleep in the comfy bed. If this is the cheapest room type they have, the higher end must be awesome! Highly recommend staying here.

We stayed here for only 1 night in mid-March. Reception staff were just "ok" - he seemed busy with other tasks and wasn't offering to help etc. We had visited Taupo before, so this was not so much of an issue. The room (B) was acceptable though nothing special. Definitely no lake views even though just across the road. The room seems to have been updated somewhat but it would be good if they went further! e.g. the shower was quite small and the shower curtain wrapped around you if you moved! We also would have preferred to be offered a cake of soap rather than a soap gel dispenser in the shower. There was some free Wi-Fi but only 50MB a day. There was no air-conditioning in the room though they did provide a pedestal fan. So we thought this motel was ok for just a night's stay, nothing more.

We really enjoyed our time at Accent. We had a great view of the lake from our room. We had our 9month old daughter with us and found it so handy having a separate bedroom with a TV in it!! Thick walls the neighbours didn't hear when bubs woke in the night. The courtyard out the back was nice, plenty of parking, away from the hussle and bussle of central Taupo. Excellent value for money plenty of beds and very comfy too!! Thanks very much we really enjoyed our stay.

Room Tip: Ask for the front room as it has a great view of the lake!!

We stayed for three nights and found the location to be good (have to have a car), rooms very nice, and hosts wonderful. They gave us recommendations about where to eat and we had delicious feasts every time. They also let us use the clothesline instead of the dryer which saved us some money and allowed us some relaxing moments playing with their cat in the field behind the house. These small touches made the place a lovely base for our adventures in Taupo.

This place is also pet friendly, and although we didn't have our dog with us, it would have been an ideal location, with a big field out the back, each unit having a little grassy courtyard, and plenty of space inside.

A must stay at for all who travel with their dogs. There are 4 dog friendly units 1. 2 bedroom 1. 1 bedroom ( which we had) 2 studio . We found our unit was spacious & modern very well presented. We have two large golden retrievers' and their was plenty of room for the dogs rugs in the living room. room for the dogs beds in the bedroom on the floor. At the back of the motel is a reserve which you can take your dogs to. Over the road is the lake front which has a wonderful walk way called the lions walk which is 10kms long (so far) The owners were great to deal with & very friendly and would go out of there way to help it there was a problem. I recommend this is a great place to stay even if you don't own a dog. We will be using this motel on our next trip to Taupo

we stayed here last week in a lake view family room. the room is so spacious and beautiful and tidy. And the view is stunning as well. We have everything in the room with oven, dishwasher, washing machine, dryer, two king size beds, one single, three couches, one big dining table. We feel very comfortable and relaxing. The prie is resonable. The reception staff was friendly. It is convenient to go to the town and other attractions . We will definitely recommend this room to our friends and we will stay again. Thanks for giving us a happy holiday.

not suitable for a relaxing weekend. My husband and I were wanting somewhere comfortable to sit back and relax. We chose a one bedroom unit thinking there would be a comfortable couch or chair but there were neither. The only chairs were the cane ones used with the dining table. Having the King size bed in the lounge area took up most of the room. We came home a day early as the whole idea for the weekend was to do nothing, read some books,but the lack of comfortable chairs was off putting.

Room Tip: not suitable if you have children as no room in the lounge area
