I have stayed at this Motel on a few occasions. The outside has a Swiss Chalet look (hence the name) with wooden gabled rooms. I have stayed in the one bedroom apartments each time I have stayed. The downstairs room has the kitchen and bedroom as well as a downstairs bathroom with shower. The upstairs room has a large double...

The service was warm and friendly and the rooms were clean and tidy. This is an older building so very little sound insulation and you can clearly hear people moving around and talking in other rooms. The only other slight gripe we had was that there was just some generic wall soap - no shampoo or conditioner which we would...

Accomodation well situated, quiet & warm, as there was a frost overnight the heat pump was great. The bed was comfortable but every time one of us turned over the other person definitely felt it. The couch was biggest "bug bear" we could feel the framing board when we sat on it & as there was no support we slid...

We stayed here on the 18 and 19th May 2017. The staff were friendly and professional and the motel is clean and tidy - especially for the price point and location. The spa bath in the room is old but it works a treat and if you can, get a room facing the lake for amazing views. The interior is...

We had a two bedroom apartment with kitchenette for the 3 of us. The hosts were amazing and really helpful with local attractions. It is so conveniently located but still quiet - walking distance to town and restaurants; great views of Lake Taupo. There is a laundry facility - just ask the hosts where it is. They even have two...

Good Hosts. Great location Quiet but close to the lake and shopping centre. The first floor apartment had a balcony view of the lake and the snow on the mountains. Inside is very simple but caters for cooking needs and has a separate bedroom

Balcony connected to your friends room which was nice as it was great to sit around and be close to each other. Great rooms with a view of the lake. loved the owners cat very...

This motel is a great place to stay. It's location is walking distance to town and many restaurants. It is positioned with a clear, uninterrupted view of Lake Taupo. The rooms are immaculately clean, spacious and apartment styled, with two-storeys. Our room had a balcony with space to sit out from both the ground floor and the top storey. There...

We were here for two days, and their restaurant located at a great place, with the best taupo lake view and a lot of good restaurants around. Staffs are very friendly and they allowed us to check in 30 mins late because we were trapped at tongariro, and one of their staff even helped us to carry our luggages which...
