Stayed just the one night. Wished we'd stayed longer! A friendly welcome, spotlessly clean, well-equipped, and a very comfortable bed. Just a stone's throw from the lake and a few minutes drive from the town centre. What's not to like? A short conversation with Julian before we left made it quite obvious the he and Jill work really hard here to ensure guests are well looked after.

What an awesome place to stay. Julian is so helpful and really kind, helped us decide where to go for dinner and just generally made our stay far more pleasant. The chalets are really lovely and the beds have electric blankets, there’s plenty of space. We are really sad we only had one night here. We will be back!

We were so lucky, staying in the front motel unit (A) with a lake view. As it is set up for four guests and we were only two, there was plenty of crockery and cutlery ... such a bonus after struggling with the minimum of two of everything in some other motels. Only one tiny problem ... with the cooktop. I couldn't figure out how to use it and despite searching, couldn't find any instructions. If the owners are reading this, could you please put some instructions in the unit? I realised later it may have been an induction cooktop that needs a pot to be sitting on it before it will operate ... but that didn't dawn on me at the time. (Yes, I'm a senior citizen!)
Despite being near the road, there was no problem with passing vehicles, and access from the busy main road is so easy, with being able to turn into Hawai Street.

Room tip: Unit "A" is great!

Julian checked us in and was very friendly and knowledgeable about Taupo. Giving us lots of recommendations.
Our unit had a fantastic view of the lake.
A queen bed in one room and two singles in the lounge. We had plenty of room.
A good sized kitchenette, which looked new.
Spa and bike hire(both free)are an added nice touch.
The motel is about a five minute drive into the main center of Taupo or a nice 15/20 minute walk into town.
All in all good value for money, great location and hosts.
