Everything about this accommodation deserves 10/10. The first thing we noticed was how CLEAN the room and bathroom was; next we were delighted to see the fridge freezer was actually cold and well sized to accommodate our essential snacks and drinks. Everything was well placed, su

Right on Lake Taupo, this has stunning views. Large rooms with all facilities, plus outside pool and seating. Approx 3 kms from town centre. Near water equipment hire place. Set back from main road a little, so good for families as away from traffic, and away from road noise.

The room was spacious and very comfortable with an amazing view of the lake. We did have to carry our luggage up stairs but it was worth it. The bathroom could possibly do with an upgrade as the water leaked out of the spa when we showered

Hi 'dmmarch50'. We appreciate that you have a choice in accommodation providers here in Taupo, and we thank you for choosing to stay with us. Thank you for letting us know about the bathroom, we are looking at an upgrade in the future, and we have completed our first upgrade. This does take time and money and it is something that we are planning on continuing when we are able. We also thank you for taking the time to place you review, and hope to see you again in the future. We hope to see you again soon and we wish you all the best. Erin and Amos, Managers.

Is it too far to stay and do a day trip for tongariro crossing? Thanks
Is it too far to stay and do a day trip for tongariro crossing? Thanks
No, you can easily do this. Its best to pre-book some transport like Tongariro Expeditions as they can drop you off at the start point and pick you up at the finish point. Check out their website and you will see departure times. they pick up from motel accommodation.

Hi, Are you able to arrange for shuttle to Taupo airport? We need to be at the airport by 8am. Thanks
I'm not sure a shuttle runs from that far out of the town. I know the bus runs from the information right in the heart of Taupo. You would need to get to that pickup point.

Does the wifi works properly throughout the building? I'm thinking about a one bedroom apartment facing the pools but I need a good internet connection.
It was very good for us, we were in a room close to the reception building.
