This motel is right at the far end of Lake Terrace and there are plenty of motels closer to the shops and restaurants and the main lakeside attractions. The hosts are very pleasant and helpful but the motel is old fashioned and pretty poor. We were put in Unit B right at the front of the motel near to the road. The studio was very small and furnishings were of poor quality. The internet reception was poor and the water pressure in the shower was low. Our room provided no privacy whatsoever. The unit across from us looked directly into our room, unless we pulled the curtains and the grassed seating area outside, at the rear of the studio, was not screened. Overall, this wasn't a pleasant experience.

Thanks for your feedback - we appreciate your comments. There are a number of motels like us two to three kms outside the CBD which suit guests who prefer that quieter location. We trust you enjoy the rest of your trip.

arrived at 11pm and left at 530am the next day.
we were met on arrival with a lovely, nice man who was very hospitable despite the late hour.

the room was warm and clean, the shower was amazing especially after a long road trip in a truck.

will definitely stay again!

So glad your short stay was what you needed to rest and refresh. We work with guests who are arriving late to make sure they are welcomed and the room is ready.

Decided to make a last minute trip to Taupo and found this place. Close to city centre. Very warm welcome by owner Dennis. Room very tidy decor up to date balcony with lake view. Very comfortable size for a family of four. Well worth the price! Will definitely be back to stay next time for a longer trip!

Our hosts were very attentive and helpful. The room was very comfortable with good facilities. The special point that set this motel apart from all others before was the lightning fast unlimited internet (in 20Gb chunks).

We understand how important internet is to travellers and we provide them with an allowance that lets them catch up downloading photos to free up space - and some.
Thanks for the comment so other travellers can see what we do.

From the moment you arrive Dennis and Fran make you feel at home and are a wealth of local knowledge, the location is great right opposite the lake. We had originally booked for three nights but decided to stay for four as we were so happy with the accommodation. The room we had was very clean with a really comfortable bed and a small kitchen area with everything you could want. I would highly recommend and would happily stay again
