I was due to stay in Napier, but no accommodation due to the Horse of the Year Show! So I drove all the way to Taupo and found the Lake Taupo Motor Inn. I wish I hadfound it on previous visits to Taupo! Wonderful friendly and helpful staff, well presented and clean rooms. Will definitely stay here again on future...

This hotel was clean and tidy, every thing needed was supplied. It would suit families or passing through. I wouldn't recommend it looking for luxury but it suited our needs. The lake view was minimal but location was handy.

Spacious rooms, very clean and a friendly welcome here. Small kitchenette, good enough to prepare breakfast. Would stay again. Handy location, a quick walk into town to restaurants and shops. Easy to find, undercover parking, plenty of units if travelling with a large group.

Spent 2 nights here and I have to say well worth it. Great staff. Just a small walk to the main town 5 minutes. Good spacious room. Bathroom big. Would recommend to anyone. Staff made us very welcome and gave us good tips for the rest of our trip

Great place to stay and within walking distance of the main part of the town. Beautifully clean rooms, with plenty of fresh air and a great balcony to view across the roof tops to the lake. Great having the spa bath in the bedroom.. one can sit and watch TV

The people at the front desk were friendly and helpful. Our family stayed one night and the two bedroom layout was great. The air conditioning worked well as the day was rather warm. The only minor grip was the lack of working privacy locks on the toilet and bathroom.

We just stayed one night in Taupo this time and we were very pleased with the accommodation. We had a two bedroom unit with a kitchen and separate toilet and shower rooms. Wonderful experience, from start to end. Very friendly staff and very clean and comfortable. Would definitely return.

Great little motel with everything you need. Its a short walk into the small town center and a short walk down to the lake. Pretty quiet. Rooms were clean and suitable for a family of four, no problem.
