We chosed this motel because the location at the lake. The room was clean and good service, but the room quite small. The owner is very kind and willing to serve you. The bathroom very clean, but a little bit old. Wifi unstable..... Overall is Good.

Motel-keeper is too suspicious
The room was differ from description, the number of bed provided did not match.and the motel-keeper was so suspect his guests. My friend in Taupo dropped off and picked up us at the motel. The motel-keeper kept coming to us and repeating if we let our friend to stayover he will charge on us, even though we tried to explain our friend LIVED in Taupo and was NOT staying with us. He sounded like we were going to hind extra guests behind him. Very bad experience! What kind of motel-keeper would keep coming again and again to annoy your guests?

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.
