I've stayed here on business a few times and its always pleasant. The noise from others showering is quite an issue ( no sleeping through the noise of the cylinder) but that's the only real drawback. Good food, friendly service, WiFi and TV. Beds are reasonably hard, soft pillows. Each room I've stayed in has had a queen/king and a...

I stayed one night at the above "resort". I had a hot water cylinder within my room and others showering either side of my room kept me up all hours. I travelled for business with an early start in the morning and found this to be incredibly disruptive. I had three beds in a tiny room although I was alone...

Thank you for taking the time to review the Resort, sorry to hear that other guest kept you awake, unfortunately this does happen in most properties at this time of the year and over such a busy time. The room you were allocated would have been a family room, because that was all that was available, these rooms do have...

This hotel was actually much nicer than I anticipated. I booked here because it was one of the last hotels with vacancies due to the easter weekend. The rooms were clean, good bathrooms, and I would say value for money. Staff were also very nice at check in. I would suggest to the hotel owners / managers that they need...

We stayed in this hotel twice in 4 days and for the second stay we were accompanied by 2 friends from Germany. The facilities were excellent and the room was quiet and clean. The second night was a pleasant surprise. The hotel was completely full and still the level of noise was more than acceptable. Again the room was clean,...

I came here as part of my Contiki tour, and shared a 3 bed room. The room itself was a good size, and the en suite was really nice. We made use of the spa pools, they're free to use but you need to get a key at reception. It is possible to walk into town, but I wouldn't recommend...

If you don't expect much, you'll not be disappointed. This property is tired and I wanted to say clean -- but found dead bugs under my pillow. Staff is nice enough and wifi works...however, this is minimalist for a motel stay.

I stayed for only 1 night as part of a tour group and had a pleasant stay. The outside of the hotel and it's facilities were quite nice.The room was a little dated and beds weren't the most comfortable but still was alright for the night. The breakfast was great :)

We stayed 2 nights this weekend to attend a concert in Taupo. The room was clean, but the beds are very old with springs felt and seen through mattress. We are a family of 3, yet our room was only supplied with 2 towels and very little complimentary soap, shampoo etc. luckily we always have our own anyway. The room...
