Great lakeview but small room

facing the scenic lake
when we book the room online, it stated that the room can accomodate 2-3 adults. but on registration, we were charged an extra nzd40 for 2 nights because there were 3 of us (2 adults and child of 15yrs). we were unhappy with the extra charge because the room is small and it's quite a long walk to town abt 2km. otherwise it was clean and has basic minimum facilities.

Nice Motel, great location

we had a good stay here, it was sold on agoda with complimentary wifi however we were told on arrival that that had changed and we were now limited. seeings as we both have iphones and were staying 2 nights we asked if we could have 2 limited log ins. the guy runnning the place got a bit funny but didnt want to make a scene in front of another guest. overall a comfortable clean stay, a bit dissapointed with that particular incident and therefore wouldn't stay again.

Lovely clean room and good friendly service

location, size of room
lake taupo is picturesque and the hotel is right on the shore. the room and service were great but there is no air conditioner so hot days it rely on open windows. be careful though, other guests may be smoking on the shared balcony and your room can quickly fill with the smell of other people's smoke.
Sightseeing/Attractions Tip: Huka Falls are definitely worth a look.

Beautiful setting

View from the property spa bath
On arrival the owner gave us the key and said the room was round the back and up the stairs. There was no offer of assistance at all.The first morning we were woken at 6am by the radio alarm blaring out from the room next door. When we told him about it he didn't apologise, just said that there was nobody in there and the alarm had been set by mistake. Next morning - exactly the same thing! I used the phone and he came and turned the thing off. Again, no apology. When we checked out all he did was take the key from me, no asking if we had enjoyed our stay.
Sightseeing/Attractions Tip: This property is a good 20 minutes walk from the town centre, so if you are carrying shopping maybe a taxi back would be your best bet.

Nice Hotel inTaupo

Free Internet, Big Bath tub, Good Location, free to use washing machine and dryer
This is my second stay at Colonial, still very satisfying stay. Love the big bed, the big bath tub and the location is perfect. Close to the restaurants and shops which is why I love to stay there. also walking distance from the lake so I could take a walk in the morning. cant wait to spend more time there when I have time.

too bad it was only for one day

beatiful motel, set in a beautiful setting and manned by staff who made you feel really welcomed.
The Colonial was the 4th hotel we stayed in during our 2 weeks vacation in New Zealand and it was the best. The room was relatively cheap but provided ALL the basic needs you would expect from a higher priced room. The location was just superb and provide a massive view of the lake. What I liked most though, were the warm, friendly and helpful staff
Sightseeing/Attractions Tip: Motel staff were more than happy to give you a full run down of the attractions in the area
