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,...

You are correct - we do not have a business centre however the team at our reception are more than happy to provide printing and internet access should any of our guests require this facility.

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...

We booked on wotif. When you think of the hilton taupo you expect to stay in the newer large hotel that has the beautiful lake views so you can sit on the verandah and soak it in.

The Hilton in Lake Taupo is an excellent hotel. The rooms are large and very comfortable with great views of either the lake or the mountains. The bathrooms, an important feature, are great. The restaurant is terrific too. The location is a bit away from downtown but the views are worth it. Easy taxi service is readily available.
