The resort is in taupo, with plenty of family cafe or fast food stores not far. Plenty of child play facilities and hot spring spas including private pool and water slides! We bought three days pass using guest specials and we literally keep coming back day after day, and my son loves it! So relaxing.

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.

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.

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.

Spacious cabin, laundry & drying facilities, able to self cater

We had a 2 bedroom cabin for the two of us so had plenty of space. The cabin was clean & well equipped for self catering with an excellent shower, though I could have used an extra blanket. The resort is about 3k out of town (we had a car) and caters for a mix of travellers. It was a bit noisy near the BBQ & facilities block but the $2 wash & $2 dry (lasted ages) is a bargain. The spa was great in the evening (a bit pricy even at $11 for guests so try to find a coupon) - we only stayed half an hour for the two evenings of our stay & slept brilliantly. Staff were really friendly & helpful.

We spent one night at DeBretts and were very happy. The staff were friendly and helpful at check-in and room was reasonably spacious and clean. Everthing for a longer stay was provided and it would be a great spot to spend a week or two. Only possible negative was the location being a bit out of town but the wonderful mineral pools more than compensate for that.

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.
