Well maintained hotel with free wifi

Posted Sep 9, 2017
Great family hotel with friendly service and good free wifi. Nice setting opposite the lake and a short drive in to town. We had a very comfortable stay here with our 2yo daughter. Especially enjoyed patting the local cat.

The staff were so attentive and accomodating. The room was beautiful and the pools so relaxing and lots of fun for our children. Our family really enjoyed our stay and we'll definitely be back. Thank you so much.

Convenient and ideal for family

We had a family reunion and it was good for children who enjoyed the pool and spa. Facilities were good but the shower door needed replacing- we kept flooding the bathroom!

Welcomed by excellent hosts for an overnight stay. Rooms were great. Only downside was the pillows were a bit hard but everything else was fantastic.

Great hotel close to Lake

Posted Apr 9, 2017
Pros: Helful staff, Room situation, views and space. Facilities provided included Spa and pools
Cons: See above
Location: Taupo facilities close by and able to walf/cycle/drive there.
Only there one night would like to have spent longer time. Staff very helpful and welcoming. Room facilities great with comfy King bed. Only things we would have changed were the siting of the shower rose, the workings of the bedside radio and the amount of space allowed for access/egress to parking at the rear of the motel. Would throughly recommend especially to families.
