We have stayed there before and were impressed. However this time we thought it was not as clean as in the past, floors, skirtings. Bathroom good, except for hard tired towels. Only two, no hand towel and tissue box almost empty. Curtains still looked good, but bed covering etc looked past their use by date. On the ground floor there...

The local I-Site directed us to this motel which was not on the lakefront but was close to the shops and eating places. The young lady in the office gave us an upgrade to their newest unit which had great views looking towards the mountains. The furnishings were lovely, a triple sheeted king bed and a lounge area with a...

We recently stayed for a night at the Alpine Lake Motel. We felt that the room rate was over priced for what was offered. Although the self contained unit was tidy & clean, the furnishings and linen were tired and mismatched. The spare room had 3 single beds but no drawers, mirror or wardrobe. There was a large coffee table...

This was a great find for us. It had its very own barbecue which we put to good use. We were able to put the 3 children to sleep in the separate bedroom before we watched two DVDs from their complimentary library. Very modern, very clean and great value.

Stayed here for a sporting event for which this place is ideally situated being right in town and close to the starting point. The unit was squeaky clean and quite upmarket in furnishings and I was pleasantly surprised how luxurious it was for the price I had paid compared to other motels that I had stayed at in Taupo previous...

On a recent trip back home to NZ from the craziness of Bangkok where I'm living now I was looking for smallish motels which were quiet and of course well priced. This motel was a wonderful spot- and I had the best night's sleep on my trip. Very clean, nice staff and a great spot close to town and attractions....

Had a super unit with lovely spa bath and a sunny courtyard. Receptionist made us very welcome and was very helpful in advising us about where to dine out.

Stayed 2 nights in late February 2012. Motel was very busy with events on over the weekend in Taupo. Checkin efficient but did not even get a smile. Room was clean and what was expected. Bathroom was clean except for shower which had some mould and green goo at bottom of door where it had obviously never been cleaned. Motel...
