Great view for great stay - Stayed October 2015, travelled with family
Family-trip with stop on Taupo for a night. Port a cot and babybath were set on demand for last one. Room was confortable with recent refurbished kitchen & bathroom. Welcome delicious cookie & apple after long road. Beautiful high-height ceiling small house with private spa on back. It was really resting. Most beautiful is the view: sunset on Taupo Lake with in back snowed top mountains. Wow!!
Best Motel in Taupo! - Stayed October 2015, travelled with family
This was the best motel we have experienced in Taupo so far. Very clean, nice rooms, comfortable beds, well equipped kitchen and the shower had extremely good pressure - very nice after a long day outdoors.
The owners were very friendly, took their time to show us around upon arrival and explained all the facilities. They remembered our name and the reason for our stay .... something I have never experienced before.
We will definitely be back when travelling to Taupo again.
Thank you!
If you are planning a visit to Taupo then I can recommend Gables - there's even a mobile coffee shop, the Steaming Bean over the road - perfect!
Fantastic Motel - Stayed October 2015
My children and I throughly enjoyed our stay at Gables.The motel is so well presented and clean, lovely personal touches like apples and fresh home baked cookies and the owners are so friendly and helpful.
We loved being able to cross the road and swim at the lake then come back and relax in our private hot pool.
After staying at 3 very poor places on other trips Gables has restored my faith in what a motel should be,we will definately go back.
Everything you need for a relaxing stay - Stayed September 2015, travelled as a couple
Stayed here years ago and it was ok, but now under new ownership it's so much better. From the little things provided in our room like a range of magazines, cookies, and fresh apples, to the rooms having been totally renovated to the utmost standard. The kitchen is very modern with everything you need, including a dishwasher, ceramic cooktop, microwave and fridge. The shower dome is awesome as there's no steam build up in the bathroom. The heatpump was grunty and already turned on so we walked into a nice warm room. The bed was great even for us as we have back problems. And OMG the hot pool in our own private setting was so relaxing! It's very quiet too even though it's on the main road. The hosts are amazing, nothing was too much trouble - as we decided at the last minute to take a trailer with us but it wasn't an issue at all. This will be our first and only port of call from now on for our rare days away from the farm. Can't fault it.
Should be number 1 in Taupo :)) - Stayed September 2015, travelled as a couple
The most remembering in this motel is the understanding of customers needs. Friendly and taking the time to make the stay very pleasant. It makes the different between regular stay in great location viewing to the lake to fabulous time using the familiarity of the place by the honors. Most recommendable.
