This location was very hard to beat. Great views out over the lake from the upstairs rooms and a easy walking distance into town. The Irish bar out the front is a great social spot with plenty of tasty pub food options. Accommodation is Affordable with all the basics covered well.

The hotel was comfortable and had a great bathroom. The water pressure in the shower was fantastic! The kitchenette we had didn't have a stove or sink but a fridge and some bench space. Washing machines and dryers were located on site and could be used for a small fee. We were located right next door to a restaurant (Jolly...

The hotel was booked for us by our travel company. There is an English pub next-door which is very reasonable. The rooms mainly look out upon each other or the parking lot not the Lakeview which is unfortunate. The room we had is motel style with sliding doors for entry from the parking lot. The room is a reasonable size...

The room was comfortable, spacious, clean and the service was good. Perhaps I didn't read the description property but our ground floor room only had a view of the car park and reception. Also there is a road between the motel and the lake. The spa in the enclosed, very ordinary bathroom was also not particularly inviting so we didn't...

We stayed here for 3 nights before heading to do the Tongariro Alpine Crossing. Was surprised to find cooktop and all the essentials! Comfy bed- except king was 2 singles pushed together. Bathroom and bedroom very clean. Enjoyed our stay a lot. About a km to the town/grocery store.

Having spent the day in Rotorua, and taking in all the sites on the way down to Taupo, the last thing we wanted to do was spend all evening running round looking for somewhere to get our heads down.

Hosts very friendly and helpful. Spotlessly clean, quiet good sized rooms with everything needed to cook or get a snack for yourselves, although restaurant just next door. Short walk into the main area of Taupo, took 8 minutes to get to the harbour for a sailing trip.

We enjoyed our two night stay at Twin Peaks. It was very quiet and in a convenient location to all the Tourist activities. A bonus was the Restaurant in the front...The unit supplied everything we needed.
