We booked a room here at the very last minute on New Year's Eve which is the only reason I accepted the extremely overpriced charge for the room. We only just booked it before leaving home so didn't get a chance to see the room or what was in it. I had high expectations though, due to the horrendous price...

Dear MacDutch - thank you for taking the time to share your experience and feelings. I am pleased to know that you enjoyed your stay regardless of the rate being higher than you would normally pay. You are correct rates are indicative of the holiday seasons and the necessary extra staff costs involved. Our hotel's fabulous location demands high rates...

We only stayed here for one night, but wished it was longer. This is a beautiful hotel situated on the lake. The hotel was built in the 1930’s and has been renovated extensively. Our room was on the ground floor, with a small veranda with a table and 2 chairs to sit on to enjoy the view of the lake....

Retirement age executive couple, picked this hotel from TA and were rewarded with a smart accommodation and really nice restaurant meal. The weather did not cooperate and, unfortunately, clouds masked what the postcards called the view. Away from the crowds, this was a nice one night stay on a three week trip.

We couldn't believe our eyes when shown our room........ the views over the lake were spectacular. We spent three nights here during our extended trip to New Zealand and enjoyed every moment!

We had room 812 which was among the few with glass panel balcony. Ask for those for unobstructed view of Lake Taupo. The room itself is ok, but shower cubicle is tiny even for medium size people. If you are large you'll need to squeeze yourself in. The hotel has coin operated laundry with a good size dryer, which served...

Seriously, if you are visiting Taupo you really should consider Manuels in Taupo. The position on the lake is unbeatable.
