Really liked the room, and facilities within. Lovely room facing the lake. Little noise from passing traffic, well insulated. Also within walking distance of town, we walked it and back, really nice stroll.

Immaculate motel on late Taupo within walking distance to shops and restaurants. Rooms cozy and yet roomy with full kitchenette and sitting room. Bed extremely comfortable. Reasonably priced. Staff friendly and helpful with knowledge of local area.

Sails On The Lake has the perfect position right on the lake front. Our upstairs unit was spacious and well appointed with a balcony giving stunning views over to the snow capped Mt Ruapehu. Owners are welcoming and friendly.

This has to be our third or fourth time at Sails and we are never disappointed. Immaculate, affordable and convenient! It’s always satisfying to have somewhere to stay that never lets you down. We will of course return again.

Loved the view, bed was amazing, spa bath was amazing, service was incredible and could barley hear anyone next door which is always a plus! 10/10 would come again, thank you for a great first holiday with my partner! We won't forget it.
