Great Place
We loved the mineral bathtub and little back yard. Town is a just nice 10 minute walk by the Lake away. We would for sure stay here again.

Nice hotel with mineral pools
Hot mineral pools, close to the city center, good value for money
The best part was the hot mineral pools. Some rooms have private ones, but also there are two pools available for all customers. Heated outdoor pool. Cozy room, 5 mins drive to the city center with restaurants and shopping. Friendly staff. I would definitely recommend this hotel to my friends.

Very 1960's style. Unit 9 - Studio, cramped.
Only one. View from the unit.
Acceptable, but about 20% over priced. Clean and tidy but very basic and cramped. Spa pools (x2) onsite available 24/7 poor quality, very poor lighting, concrete boxes filled with warm water. Clean but not inviting. Overall, over priced for what is offered. Overly large bathroom and wardrobe, resulting in cramped kitchen and eating area. Needs remodelling. Very 1960's style. Would not choose to stay at this motel again.

Give your review a title . . . Sounds good to me
Location, Price and Location
We came to Taupo on an emergency visit to see a dying relative at Taupo Hospital. It was get the phone call, book the flights and a motel and hope for the best. Staff (Jenny in particular) were VERY helpful. The motel was the closest one there was to the hospital (LOCATION) The initial 1 night stay (not sure how bad relative was and if they might be going to Rotorua hospital)was easily extended to 3 and the price was VERY reasonable (PRICE) The lake was also right there at the doorstep although we didn't really have time to take advantage. If we were revisiting Taupo under more pleasant circumstances, I'd have no hesitation in staying there again.

great private hot pool
clean, location, private hot pool
Room is dated but really clean. The unlimited hot mineral water in the private pool is great. The only problem is probably the wall heater unit. It is dusty and it has a timer. You need to re-press the button to keep it going. It is not practical when you need to sleep in the freezing cold winter night.
