Great Accommodation but very unfriendly atmospherePosted Aug 12, 2013 on Hotels.com
The rooms were vey clean and tidy and first impressions were good. Unfortunately there were signs up telling us what not to do or else be liable to fines or penalties from the management. I felt like you were very much an unwelcome guest in someone's lovely home.

Nice quiet locationPosted Jul 22, 2013
Pros: Cleanliness, location.
Cons: No sink to wash dishes. Had to wash them in bathroom.
Location: Was great, nice and quiet. Not right in town but very close.
Hotel was fantastic. Nice quiet location and nice new rooms. However we never once saw owners or manager, arrived at hotel did not know how to get in or what room we were in. Tried to call with no answer. If it hadn't been for another guest telling us where key was we would never have got in which I think is quite poor. Overall it was a nice stay I think they should just at least send you a confirmation email letting you know contact cell phone number which was inside the room! And also where to pick up key.

Good stayPosted Jul 7, 2013
I was lucky enough to get an upgrade so I had a large, lovely room. There were no complaints really except that there was no plug for the bath which was disappointing.

Upgrade to the housePosted Dec 21, 2012 on Hotels.com
Wonderful place, we were upgraded to the house which was absolutely fantastic. Everything you could need and outstanding comfort. Views over Lake Tekapo were great, even in the rain.

Stopover pointPosted Oct 23, 2012

Stopover for us. Was greeted at the door by someone who explained everything thoroughly. Lovely and spacious inside with free coffee and tea.

Falls ChateauPosted Feb 25, 2012 on Hotels.com
Very clean and modern room and good facilities. Handy location for Taupo centre, huka falls and surrounding attractions (must have transport). Room was excellent and could have no complaints about the facilities and cleanliness. Only negative comment is that if there are others staying in the adjacent apartment you do get a fair bit of noise coming through. On the whole i would recommend this as a place to stay for a short break in Taupo.

Not what I expectedPosted Feb 23, 2012 on Hotels.com
This 4 unit hotel was not what I expected since it was located in a residential neighborhood and only had 4 units. However it was in a perfect location and the view from the room was spectacular. Well appointed rooms and provided lots of extras that were unexpected. We actually thought about staying an extra night.
