    We're staying in the room on the ground floor and if you see through the window there is a amazing senery. The room is nice and big. The location is not far from town center therefore I recommend this motel.

    The room facilities were excellent, free wifi and parking, spa bath and wonderfully vigorous shower pressure, helpful staff. But it was the iconic Lake Taupo and Mt Ruapehu views that entranced me. Simply splendid. Would happily return.More
