We spend 4 nights at Cascades Motor Inn. 2 adults and 2 boys. The room we had was perfect for our family and the little sun deck at the back with BBQ was a plus. The Inn has direct access to the Lake which we used every morning for a swim. The owners a super friendly and help with everything...

Stayed one night. Easy check in, nice host. Great access to a the lake and walkway. A little far to walk to dinner. Located right off busy highway and rooms close to that do experience quite a bit of noise. As far as mid price chain motels go it wasn't bad but nothing special.

What a brilliant place. Graham and his wife are the most accommodating hosts, the apartment was just what we needed - cosy, clean and with everything we needed and the location absolutely stunning! I couldn't recommend it more.

An overnight stay. Accommodation very clean but no information about motel or surrounding area in unit apart from list of channels stuck on TV. Spa bath worked beautifully and bubbles built up nicely but as we couldn't switch it off they.....well I'll leave it to you to picture the scene! A sharp jab on the switch was all that was...

Superb rooms with everything you need, a blissful outlook and we've been really lucky with the weather. Strolled out of the room straight into the lakefront and found a place a few minutes along for a beer and a wood fired pizza. Great hosts too, will be back.

Just behind the inn is lake taupo and the view was beautiful. We took walks along the lake every morning and evening. The inn manager was friendly and we managed to get a room even though we didn't make reservations. Room was small but big enough.

Husband and I made last minute decision to spend some time in Taupo after completing the Tongariro Crossing. Hosts were very welcoming, the position on the lake front is just beautiful and our studio apartment was spotless and comfortable. Bicycle hire at the property very handy. Watched a beautiful sunset over the lake from the sailing club a few hundred...

The Comfort Inn is 3km from taupo but it was great staying on the lakefront. Plus it's an enjoyable walk into town. The staff were very friendly and welcoming. Our room was clean and had everything we needed. It was great having our own BBQ and outdoor table set

Nice and clean and everything you need lovely staff,right next to the lake. We had a down stairs studio which was lovely but if you don't need to be up early I would advice to request for a upstairs unit. Overall lovely place to stay

Nice room. Friendly check in. Small courtyard with BBQ for if it doesn't rain! Right by the lake. Great breakfast at The Cove just a short walk away on the lake path. About 2.6 kilometres from the town.

Thank Sue T
