BEST VIEW OF THE LAKE
We were celebrating our Wedding Anniversay and on holiday from Australia. What a wonderful motel. Franky greeted us with a very friendly smile and was so helpful. We were lucky enough to have a private hot pool and we loved our complimentry sparkling wine and chocolates. Rooms were so clean and bed was very comfortable. Loved sitting outside our room and looking straight on to the lake. We will certainly be staying here again

FANTASTIC FACILITIES IN A GORGEOUS LOCATION
The owner was lovely and the facilities were all we could have asked for. We had a superior room with a hot tub, and it was everything we needed. Although the weather was terrible, it was still great to sit in the lounge and look out over the lake. We had everything we needed and lots of nice extra touches.

TOP LOCATION IN TAUPO
Great location within walking distance of restaurants and town centre, immaculately clean, well-appointed rooms, great lake views to enjoy a beer or wine sitting on your verandah. Very quiet at night, and extremely helpful manager Frank for whom nothing is too much trouble. Will definitely stay here again!

THE TRUE MEANING OF EXCEEDING EXPECTATION!
The welcoming was truly genuine and so nice. The room was spotless, the quality of the kitchen counter and the furniture is superb! The bathroom and the shower was quite perfect. The laundry room and equipment is super clean and working very well. The ice machine was good to have. The living part of the room is well thought of and comfortable. It was truly a pleasure to be there for 2 nights and we wish we could have stay more. The owner wife gave us some home made cookies, delicious. The owner found me a adapter for my nord american electrical thing and he gave it to me for my staying in NZ. No comparison to North America Motel, it is like a suite with everything that you need and so clean and well made. Trip Advisor 9.3 is not enough, 9,9 is more accurate. Don't hesitate to book you wont regret it.
