A great communal motel that helped cater 4 adults plus an infant for $135 per night (2 nights stay because it was so last minute). Was great having a bbq cooked meal instead of just take aways aswell as meeting differe t people from all over new zealand and all around the world. The other people staying were so friendly...

Arrived on the 29th of December with a planed stay until the 2nd of January. Initially the rooms seemed clean but the shower was so dirty with mould my husband brought a litre of bleach and shower power just so we could use it. I still wore my jandals in the shower! I went to grab the beer opener under...

Easy to find using satnav. I had bought the cheapest room last minute so didn't expect much and had low expectations. The receptionist warned me at check in that it was just a room, but as this is what I'd booked not an issue. Was offered clean towels on check in. Got to say actually from having low expectations and...

First of all I would like to say that the hosts were really friendly people and I am sure that this place would be better value for money if we had not stayed in peak time. We paid $140 per night plus $20 extra for dog BUT we had no choice as it was probably the only room left in...

We stayed in one of the one bedroom motels The unit was adequate for one night, The motel set up was clean and tidy. The motel is in a quiet street not far from the township and easy to locate. We stayed at a quiet time but it would seem the complex be humming with holiday makers during the summer...

Was playing minder for the groom at a stag weekend. Did not want to stay with the lads in backpackers so chose Camellia Court. Super cheap at $50 per night for up to three in a budget cabin. 1.5km walk from the main shopping area. Room plain but adequate. Queen bed with single bunk over. Gave the queen bed to...

A straightforward 70s style motel / motor camp. Tidy and functional, a short drive from centre of Taupo. Surrounded by flowering trees, and even a few camellias. Has a playground for smaller kids, and a small but well stocked kitchen block

Im happy with my stay, clean and tidy, no smells, the only thing that i dont like is the stove took a while to heat. We tried to cook noodles but it took us 20 minutes to boil, theres no sign on the stove. Receptionist is friendly.

So first of all when I booked the room for me and 2 work mates it was specified that there would be 2 single beds but instead we were given bunk beds. We found old mashed potato in our microwave as well. Which was not a great start. The room was clean and tidy but quite dated and could have...
