HOTEL’S FAVOURITE REVIEW
Reviewed 4 weeks ago

We stayed here for just one night upon arrival in NZ. Thus, we were pretty tired! The hotel graciously upgraded us to a killer one-bedroom apartment room, complete with a balcony with dining seating and a full kitchen with laundry facilities. They even gave us free covered parking. The view of the lake from the room was incredible! Nicely, it...

We had a lovely stay here. We were upgraded to an apartment and it was very clean and extremely well appointed . The helpful staff were very friendly. The heated spa, pool and gym were left good too. If I had endless money I'd move in.

The staff was outstanding and the property was second to none. We only had a one night stay coming up from Wellington and then on to Tauranga the next day. Will most definitely stay here again during our next visit to the North Island of New Zealand and make sure to spend more time in the Taupo area and all...

We arrived here after a very long drive. The staff were efficient but so friendly at reception and the fabulous genuine service continued seamlessly throughout our stay. The room was clean and had everything we needed. We even had our own private courtyard.

Super happy with the hotel. Great spot, great rooms, gym pretty well equipped, nice warm spa, great restaurant. You'll need a car to get around but definitely worth the stay. Would return for sure. We stayed in a 3 bedroom and it was huge with beautiful view of the lake one side and on the other, overlooking pool and mountains....

This hotel is exceptional. The new part of the property has been added to the historic original in a fine fashion. We were able to view some rooms in the historic section and they were just as nice as in the new area. Dinner in the restaurant was exceptional, and we enjoyed the sun setting behind the distant mountain as...
