What a fabulous hotel directly on the shores of Lake Taupo. We only stayed one night but seriously wish we had stayed longer. Our lake view room was amazing and we literally stepped out our door and into the lake for a quick swim as soon as we arrived. The room was quite modern, and nice and clean, although a...

Dear Lostsoul92 - Thank you for your feedback - so pleased to know that you enjoyed our location and most facilities.

Great hotel with very warm outdoor pool which is perfect for kids that quickly get cold in normal pools - can stay in there for 2 hours. Also great reception staff, facilities and service. We will return.

Great location and perfect facilities with friendly staff. We enjoyed the pool and just stepping out the room, walking along the lake and discovering hot pools along the lake edge. The Oasis next door, part of the same company, looked ideal for self catering options. Will definitely go back, as Taupo was awesome town and area to visit.

We like staying here and have stayed a few times before - this time we were in a room to the left of the Reception - this is the older side of the hotel. The rooms are lovely and clean, but that side of the hotel is much noisier. You hear the people above you and when a neighbour has...

The hotel is located on the lake edge, ideal for walks & car trips to view the areas tourist hot-spots. The lake-side room had adequate floor space with a charming patio overlooking the lake. The bed was comfortable and the shower good. The pool was closed for maintenance during our visit, but the staff were helpful in organising alternative access...

The hotel with its lake views and well appointed room was excellent as was the breakfast and the service in the restaurant. Staff service is a critical aspect of a hotel experience and everyone we meet was first class. My only problem, and it one that will become more frequent as more millennials become clients, is that the internet provision...

Front office staff were very helpful recommending and booking activities and taxis. Considering the relatively small size of the hotel the food in the restaurant was good with a decent variety of dishes. The buffet breakfast was comprehensive. Our room was quite large and overlooked the lake. Mattresses were too soft for my taste but nonetheless we slept well.
