Absolutely beautiful view overlooking Lake Taupo from our ground floor room. Staff were very friendly and helpful and we couldn't fault our room. The kitchenette was well equipped and a good size. Thermal pool was lovely to relax in especially when the friendly cat came for attention. Great location.

One of the best values we've found in New Zealand so far! Situated right next to the lake, all the rooms have beautiful unobstructed views of the lake and nice-sized balconies or patios. All the hotels in or closer to the city center have the road between the hotel and the lake, but once you get about a mile out...

Great place to stay and in a great location. I would be happy to recommend this place to anyone. Really nice clean and modern motel with everything we wanted. This was one of few motels that are truly lake front, as most others have the road between them and the lake. Stunning views of the lake and out to the...
