Room was clean and tidy with great amenities. Unfortunately sleeping is upstairs and with no A/C upstairs a very hot night in Taupo makes trying to sleep a hard task. They did supply a fan though which really just moves hot air around. The sky system could do with an upgrade as reception was average 🤔. Shower was great and that it had upstairs and down stairs bathrooms was good.

We only stayed overnight but would have been happy to stay longer. Room was very clean, comfortable & spacious. Very handy to town and lake with good parking. Quite overnight also. It was a cold night but was warmed up quickly with heat pump.

Absolutely loved this motel. Stayed in the premium 2 bedroom with spa. Was just lovely. Located in a great position. Beautiful Chinese restaurant nextdoor, where they give you 10% discount if staying at the motel. Easy walking distance to shops and restaurants. Would definitely stay here again

My partner and I stayed here as we were playing a squash tournament and looking forward to using the spa to loosen up the muscles. When we went to the spa in the evening, it was barely bath temperature. Only a couple of jets were going. We waited a while but temperature wouldn’t lift and we discovered cold water was coming in the bottom also. We did not go and seek assistance as we were freezing cold by this stage so went back to room for a shower. The room itself was really clean and spacious with some lake views also. Shame the couch was rather firm so a bit hard to relax on and watch TV. Check in/out was easy and owners friendly and helpful. Super handy/close walking to waterfront and main shops. Would stay here again if they could guarantee the spa was going.

The motel is quite old but owners are definitely making an effort to make a few improvements. We stayed in a 2 floors apartment with 2 bedrooms and 2 bathrooms with views over both the lake and the pool. It was clean and had what we needed for the one night we spent in it. Location is great for walking as it is lakefront and also very close to many restaurants and shops. We though it was good value for money so might go back.
