We stay here when visiting Taupo and always enjoy our stay. This time we had a top floor room which allows a little more privacy and great views both toward Taupo and down the Lake. Room was in very good repair with some parts outside being repainted. Rooms have good soundproofing with no road noise, only the waves lapping of...

This property is right on the lake, very clean stylish and and quiet. The managers Wayne and Linda are very helpful and always available for advice. Close to all amenities with stunning views it would be hard to beat this property. The Boulevard is also great value for money and you can eat in as there are all cooking facilities...

All rooms face the lake, and the ground floor room which I occupied also has a small patch of grass in front. Great if you're feeling claustrophobic. But bear in mind that there is a public walking path directly in front of the rooms, and this is frequently used by the locals. If you require more privacy, get the rooms...

New Zealand is expensive in many ways, but $146 per night for a room that was spacious, comfortable, with a hot tub, a spa pool, and a fantastic direct view of Lake Taupo.... you can pay that much for a basic hotel room in anywhere USA with no view!

We were looking for basic accommodation for a quick overnight stay - found the most relaxing location, right on the lake front. Beautiful view, very clean and tidy facility, awesome service - great cafe next door for breakfast/brunch/lunch - literally right next door! Plunge pool was awesome. Definitely a first choice on our next trip south!
