This hotel feels so homely. Set with the back drop of the lake and every luxury and comfort you could ask for. Kitchen, laundry and every convenience to make a stay comfy with a young family. The sheer size of our apartment was like a home away from home. The restaurant joined to the hotel was quite expensive but the...

We recently had a great stay at the Hilton Lake Taupo. They arranged to have a hot breakfast delivered to our room on the morning that we were doing the Tongariro Crossing. The kitchen didn't open for hot breakfast until 6:30, but our cooked breakfast arrived at our room at 6:10 and thankfully sustained us for the entire hike. We...

I went there for a conference and all was like expected. Hilton standard with a fabulous view over the lake. The food is very good and they have a great bar. I was part of a conference occupying the complete hotel and the staff did a great job.

We were overwhelmed by the hotel. After a disastrous experience earlier in the day (see my other review) we arrived here greeted by cordial staff, and a great hotel. We were all upgraded to the Junior Suite which was great. Spacious, fresh, new, loads of amenities. Sure it is a little confusing how they have the rooms numbered, however, you...

Large rooms with lovely views of the grounds. We had a helicopter land in the front yard on day 2. It is conveniently located for excursions into Taupo. They do not have a business center, and they seem to "wall off" the portion of the hotel that services conferences and such. As long as you're ok with a little walk,...

The Hilton Lake Taupo is a short distance from the lake but on a hill that gives a great view of the sunset over the water. The rooms are spacious, modern and well appointed. And they are very quiet. A great attraction is the outdoor thermal pool with a swimming pool and a hotter soak pool. Wonderful in the morning...
