“Fantastic stay”
Reviewed 14 April 2014

Really liked this motel. The location was perfect for me -- in a quiet area, but just a quick 5-10 minute walk to the main streets and iSite, and a few minutes walk to Pak 'N Save. If you're doing the Tongariro Crossing, the shuttle bus picks up/drops off here as well, so it was very convenient. I asked the hostess where I could buy a pair of cheap sandals and she directed me to The Warehouse which is just a 5 min walk down the road ($3 slippers!). She also knocked down the rate when I was checking out (!) -- a very pleasant and unexpected surprise... super nice and helpful hosts.

Loved my stay in Taupo and if I were to return, I would stay here again.

This is the second time I have stayed here...so that is saying something! Had a restful nights sleep on a good bed. Walking distance to downtown Taupo. Would recommend to anyone stopping over in Taupo. Real nice spa not far from units aswell!

We stayed here for a night with the family and found it very clean and comfortable. The location was handy and the staff at the desk were very helpful. Wouldn't hesitate to recommend it for families and would stay again.

Booked to stay three nights and were very pleased with the choice. Our one bedroom unit was of a good size, modern and very clean. It featured 2 x 2 seater settees, a wall mounted LCD TV, microwave oven and two hot elements, plenty of cooking utensils, plenty of storage space, ironing board (irons obtained at reception), hairdryer, good quality free Wifi, free Spa Pool (half hour bookings) and guest laundry. It was only 3 minutes walk to Pak n Save Supermarket and a similar distance to the commercial centre of Taupo township. Distant views of the lake were visible from the upper level units. Chevron is a good choice if staying in Taupo for longer than overnight and you want to settle in to your surroundings.

Room Tip: Rooms on the upper level have a better outlook.

Fabulous service, Fantastic value. Clean, spacious. Definately come again and recommend to all.

Big, clean room, full kitchen with two beds. An hour or so of free internet similar to other lodging in this class. No A/C. Quiet location within walking distance to much of Taupo CBD. Beds were maybe a tad hard for my liking but I'd stay here again.
