Booked here because of the location and, frankly, the lack of any more enticing alternatives. We were greeted in the friendliest possible manner and shown three different rooms, one of which, the one bedroom apartment was fabulous. Masses of space, well-appointed and a big terrace with a view of the lake. They also kindly accommodated my daughter in the next...

Thank you to everyone at Hilton Taupo for providing us with a memorable stay. We stayed 4 nights in a King Guestroom Plus room that overlooked the lake. The room was spotlessly clean with a spacious bathroom and large balcony. We've stayed here before in a much bigger room which we found in hindsight to be unnecessarily large for 2...

Stayed here overnight, just passing through. Although the front office attendant was very helpful the remainder of our stay was only average. The room lacked any quality appointments (tiny TV) tiny minibar with only a packet of pringles in it. The hotel then tried to charge us for 2 waters and 2 confectionary bars $20 that we didn't consume! The...

This is a lovely hotel on the edge of Taupo. Lovely modern well maintained bedrooms. Nice outdoor pool and fitness centre. The inhouse bistro is okay but could be so much more. Super grounds. good and plentiful parking. Helpful team members.

We recently stayed at the Hilton Taupo. We had excellent service and the staff were really friendly and helpful. The room was lovely and the view to the lake and Mt Ruapehu was gorgeous. We dined at the restaurant and the food was exceptional. I would definitely recommend staying here and look forward to returning.

A very good stay at Hilton Taupo, beds are really comfortable and our room was big enough for rolling out a yoga mat on the floor. Some noise from the pool area ( our room was in the 4th tower on ground floor ) where children played in the water. Helpful staff, good breakfast buffet with welltasting croissants. The bathroom...

I feel compelled to give a review, given the number of negative reviews about the breakfast, that nearly put me off staying here. We booked a one bedroom apartment and stayed in room 221 which was on the second floor (of four) and had magnificent views of Lake Taupo and the mountains in the distance.
