Close to Taupo CBD, quiet, spa pool
Comfortable stay for one night. Spa pool was nice, but grit needs removing. General cleaning needs to be improved - carpet needed vacuuming and spider webs (with spider) should be removed. Continental breakfast was fine. Service was very friendly.

Delightful by Spa pool too hot !
Reception staff (Patsy) friendly and helpful; comfortable rooms and priced right
All good except we hoped to have a spa soon after arrival BUT the water was 42 degrees !! A pity ! However we did enjoy a meal and Country music and dancing at the nearby RSA !

Great value for money accomodation
Centrally located, great restaurants and clean
Our stay was with a child and we found the staff hospitable. The location was superb, stone's throw away from what we were looking for. It was enjoyable and reasonably priced. There are some good restaurants in the area also.

Quaint hotel at Taupo City
Good location
The motel is situated just nice at the centre of the town. Easy walking to restaurants, Lake Taupo waterfront, shops and many more. However, like any other NZ area, the shops will close around 5pm even during summer. Onlt restaurants and bar or Pak'n'Save will be open late. The hotel manager is friendly and really helpful. However, the hotel promise a free wifi but the signal in the room is weak and rarely work. So, if you need to get connected make sure you're in front of the office or find other places with wifi.
