Everything about this hotel is great. The rooms are always clean, the staff friendly and ready to help, the food at the restaurant was great, and beautiful place to stay. Breakfast was amazing. The view while eating in the restaurant is looking over Lake Taupo.

It's very well-kept and though the premises aren't huge, it is definitely full-service. We stayed in a suite which...

The food and service at the place is world class. I dine out regularly and this was definitely the best meal and restaurant experience I have had in New Zealand. The rooms leave a lot to be desired however, they are in need of an overhaul there were hairs through the bathroom and on the pillow cases. Not what you...

That's our 6th time staying at this hotel. We enjoyed our stay at Hilton Taupo. Great location with excellent service. The food is fabulous especially the breakfast with variety of choices. The dinner was delicious though the portions are a bit small for good eaters. We will definitely come back in the future.
