Great location, easy walking to restaurants, movies and shopping. Comfortable, spacious room with separate bedroom, lovely large bed, great shower, toiletries, basic selection of tea and coffee. Our room faced the side street so not much view of the lake unless you stood in the kitchen area but was upstairs and fairly private, shared balcony with the unit next door...

We enjoyed five nights at this very well maintained motel. Karen and Kenny are attentive hosts and go the extra mile to make sure your needs are met. The bed is very comfortable, the linen spotless, the kitchen area has everything you need. Our only problem this year was some boy racers in Taupo for the weekend, as properties in...

(+) Got a room with a great view of the lake. Our room also had menus for a few restaurants in town, which helped us to decide where to go in advance- this saved us a a fair bit of time. (-) Walls a little thin- not much traffic outside, but other guests can get a little noisy.

Straight forward check-in and we were walked to our room. We had a ground floor unit (no.14), facing the road but which gave us lake views. The road was quiet so no road noise. There is a small deck out front on which to sit and catch the afternoon sun. The unit was spacious and clean. There is a dining...

What a great place to stay, nice comfy and cozy rooms and the pools we're just perfect, would recommend this place to anyone. Really close to the lake and local restaurants. The room we stayed in was two story and had a spa bath.

When we approached the Motel I had my reservations regarding this accomodation as from the carpark the building is dated and uninviting. However once inside I was pleased to discover that the rooms are 2 storey with a lounge area on the ground floor and a large bedroom with ensuite on the 1st floor. The stairs are very steep and...

stayed for a couple of days. rooms were more like apartments with two levels. cleanliness was passable but the patch work of painting and fixes were not fantastic. service was ok but no housekeeping unless you stay more than 4 days which i thought was poor taking into account the premium prices we were paying.good location and close to everything....

The motel is conveniently located and quite comfortable. We stayed for two nights and were happy with the service and room. Having suc great views was a pleasant surprise and the in-room spa was lovely. The pool and spa outdoors looked nice but we didnt have the time to use them on this stay. The one annoyance was being charged...

Hôtel near the lake, welcome was OK but nothing special! Rooms were Leo OK but very hot when we came in. There was also a disturbing smell in the room. Didn't mind so much as we had to wake up very early in the morning but not the best experience we had... Wouldn't go back if I had the choice...
