Close to lakePosted Apr 25, 2017
Pros: Close to town and lake. Great set up with the kids, as they had their own room, and bathroom too.
Cons: Update equipment and furnishings. T.V in extra bedroom very dated and did not work properly.
Location: Easy to find and close to the lake.
Nice big rooms, good with the kids. They also enjoyed the mineral spa, but was a bit dated, and not super clean. Beds, linen etc very clean but things like the fridge, kitchen utensils and general cleaning of cupboards etc not the best.

Basic Motel In TaupoPosted Dec 8, 2016 on Wotif
Pros: Its location to the lake, was a drive back into town, but not their fault.
Cons: It does need $$$ spent on it, but refurbs cost a fortune and they certainly do not attest to being 5 *. They do the best with what they have.
Location: On Lake Terrace, nice view down the lake, from the 1st floor. Not much around F&B wise, a small cafe 50 or so metere's away.
Really nice manager at check in, very helpful and friendly. Room is tired and has certainly seen better days. Decor, fixtures, lighting all need to be renovated, and this is certainly no complaint. There are better motels in Taupo, but you get what you pay for. Pleasant stay, only one night, decent value for the money.

Lovely location, comfortable stayPosted Oct 10, 2016 on Wotif
Location: Close to the lake.
Beautiful views to the lake. Loved to private spa tub. Rooms were spacious and comfortable. Just a little dated but more than adequate for our overnight stay.
