    Best resort in Taupo”

    We stayed for one night at 1 bedroom one. You can park a car infront. The room has a full kitchen even there is a dish washer! What a great! And also it is completely warm. There is a discount for in-house guests for hot spring water pools and private hot springs. Water is enough hot, there are many life guards so i felt safe for children. There is a water play ground with hot water for free as well as big slides for $8 extra. You can enter the pools many times a day, which means you can have your meals at your room and return to the pool again. I especially thank to Moana, i asked her many questions before check-in, and she always answered with very kind words. I would recommend this place if you have kids, they will love here.

    Good stay in Taupo”

    We spent one night at the resort, we got informed about a technical issue under resolution for which we received a free upgrade to a more comfortable room than the one booked. The room was very clean, modern and offered all facilities e.g. kitchenette with dishwasher and microwave. Would have spent more time at the resort and spa if we had the chance.

    Great stay with hot springs ”

    Liked this place. Comfy stay, clean rooms, spacious and car parking available. Right at the hot springs in taupo which is natural hot spring water but the pools aren't very natural feeling/looking. Its half price for people staying in the accommodation which we thought was a but of a rip off but its only $11 for adults so we payed it and it was nice to soak in the pools although very touristy. Staff were lovely. It's a bit out of town, about a $15 cab ride or 40 min walk to the main strip of cafes. Would stay again.

    Booked for a standard cabin with ensuite and expected an oldish cabin but we actually got a 2 bedroom cabin with ensuite and it was modern and very clean. Had everything we needed and the cabins were really warm. Definitely kept us warm in a very cold weather. Had enough space for my 15 mnth old bub to walk around while inside. And the cabin we were staying also overlooking lake taupo. Staff were friendly and never had issues.

    The public facilities were the best”

    I would have upgraded to a better cabin but overall this was an excellent choice. The public facilities were new, modern and immaculate. The hot springs were right there. We opted for the private baths which were very nice. And the staff was very helpful and kind. We really did enjoy our stay.

    Excellent location, view, and facilities”

    While it's a little further back from Lake Taupo than other options, the elevated view and amenities are wonderful. We stayed in one of the chalets and had a spectacular view of the lake from our room. The chalet shares a wall with another room so be mindful of noise (both from yourself and your neighbour). We didn't get to use the spa but we would have loved to try to hot pools - excellent onsite option to have.

    Next to Hilton and 2km from Lake Taupo CBD”

    It is about 10mins drive from Huka Falls. We book the family apartment with bathroom, there is a full kitchen available and it is good for family cooking. Countdown is at CBD which is 2km away. The spa pool is great but need to pay NZD 9 for kids and NDZ 11 for adults. It is good after a tiring journey and great for the kids. You might not see the signboard of the hotel if you from Hukka Falls. It is the same entrance to Hilton Hotel.

    Lacking ”

    It was a nice size cabin yes. However the best are very hard and slept on softer concrete. Pillows were terrible. Ended up sleeping on couch. The cleaning was terrible. Someone had spilt something down wall behind bedroom night stand and not cleaned it up well. Dust bunnies everywhere behind night stands and windowsills. On first impression clean but look harder and not at all. Bedroom clock on floor under bed once i found it. Yes hot pools were great but nothing to write home about. Staff were welcoming however on leaving didn't want to know you.
