We arrived in TAupo about 5pm with nothing booked so drove around the back streets until we spotted Adelphi with a vacancy sign. It looked perfectly acceptable for one night (we just needed a bed for the night). We found it spotless, with everything we needed. Took a while to get the heater sorted to warm the place up but...

We were comfortable in our 2 bedroom apartment in Adelphi hotel. Room is clean. But cold - no AC or any heater. Location is very convenient- walkable distance to the restaurant (10-15 min), so we could relax in the end of the busy day and do not drive after dinner.

Hi Yulia. Thankyou for the review. All our one and two bedroom units have heaters on the wall, very easily seen so not sure how there was no heater in the room. Pleased you enjoyed your stay.

My partner and I had a very comfortable stay at the Adelphi Motel. We found the room to be clean and the facilities were great. The gentleman running the motel was very friendly and helpful. Would recommend to travellers looking for clean and affordable accommodation in Lake Taupo.

This was such a great motel to stay at. We have a 4 month old baby and a dog and they were very accomdating for both. If I could give them 6 stars I would. The cleaners were lovely and even cleaned our baby bottles for us. They even went as far as letting us check out a little later...

Having booked this motel according to location and price, we were pleasantly surprised to find a spotless unit with 2 bedrooms, well appointed kitchen, free wifi and sky TV. We were in Taupo for a special party and on enquiring at reception about a taxi, the manager amazingly kindly volunteered to drive us into town. He even mentioned that we...

Friendly front counter. Large room which certainly was value for money. Sky TV and coffee from a plunger suits me just fine. Not to mention the free wi fi. Bed seems comfy and amenities are just fine. I would return and also recommend.

Before you read- I would stay here again. Oh my, we were in Vesa Block heaven. There is nothing that screams “stay in me” then an off grey painted Vesa Block building. However we were nearing the end of our holiday and we were strapped for cash. “Something cheap please”, I conveyed to my wife as I sat in a...

We were in a unit at the back and definitely heard very little traffic noise, Unit was spotlessly clean and had all the facilities we wanted for our stay. An excellent location - we were able to walk to all but the out of town sights. Would certainly stay here again.

We had was a two-room unit, which seemed to us was a literally combination of two otherwise separate, standard units. However, it keeps only one shower stall and one toilet, but there are useless space that could accommodate another set of washroom facilities. No matter what, the motel is reasonably well maintained and is generally clean over-all.
