Great spot, right beside the lake and no road between. Nice hotel staff who greeted you with a smile and showed you to your room. Room was clean and tidy. Good location as town only 2 minutes away. We had a superior king room which was lake front. Bed was comfortable

We booked two rooms in this lakefront hotel. The location can't be bettered. The rooms are well appointed and were warm and comfortable. The views from the room and room balcony are outstanding. We arrived just minutes before the most beautiful sunset over a glassy Lake Taupo. The bar (again with terrific lake views)was very inviting with a cozy gas...

the proximity to the lake is unbeatable. incredible view if you have the time to enjoy it. the hotel restaurant has a few exceptional dishes. highly recommend the beer battered oysters. the rooms are rather dark and a little dated. more services needed to make it a truly memorable stay.
