We were driving through and decided to stay here for a night. What a great view of the water from the room - we even made some new feathered friends with a few ducks coming up to say hello! The room is relatively small, and the shower is quite small also, however it is a nice clean room and the...

Dear Lenaki101 Thank you for sharing your happy time with us and our very friendly ducks! I am assuming that you stayed in one of our standard lakeview rooms, as these are classed as cosy and yes on the small side, if we have the opportunity to welcome you back, please do mention, and we will advise details of our...

What an amazing motel. We stayed for two nights and they have been the best so far on our drive around the North Island. Yesterday we walked around the Craters of the Moon geothermal site, the incredible Orakai Korako Cave and Thermal Park and my husband went for a ride with the Rapids Jet Company. Last night we drove the...

I came here as part of a booked Viator tour and was very worried since I'd been at a sister property an hour away in Rotorua for the previous night. But the properties were really like night and day. While that place at the other lake was rather poorly maintained, the folks of this slightly aging property did a lot...

Dear Matollygirl, very pleased to know that you enjoyed our hotel, food and staff and thank you for your lovely comments in this review. I am equally upset about your experience in Rotorua - it is a much larger hotel than ours which in turn does add a lot more maintenance issues and time delays for upgrades. Our hotel is...

Decided to stay in Taupo at the last minute and were lucky enough to get into Manuels. Got a room with a lake view and were most surprised at how lovely the room was. Staff were super helpful, view was stunning, room was clean and we could not have wanted for anything. Will definitely be back!

We booked into Millennium Hotel on the 27th December for a belated anniversay - when we got there to our surprise they upgrades us to a very beautiful room. Our view of the lake was amazing - but the best part was the restaurant - best salmon I have every had (entree) not to mention the steak on risotto !...

Great service at this lovely spot on the lake. Friendly and helpful staff plus terrific restaurant. We enjoyed a wonderful stay. Clean rooms, nice private spa and heated pool open until 11 at night It is not necessary for me to get to 200 words. I will not do further reviews trip advisor if you insist on this

Could not rate this hotel anything but superb on all accounts. It's position right on the lake edge with views across to the Mountains is the best. The weather during our stay a week ago was fantastic. Have never seen the lake so calm and so many people swimming at the many beach areas all the way on our drive...

Stayed for 3 nights in April. Had only planned to stay one night, but extended the stay as the location was so wonderful. One of just a few hotels located right on the lake shore, the views across the lake are simply stunning, especially the sunsets. The room was very spacious and well furnished. Very comfy King-sized bed, nice lounge...
