A nice option for staying in Taupo for a couple of nights. I was very impressed with the friendly hospitality of Denis the owner. The moment I checked in, he greated us warmly and informatively explained the nearby attractions. He is quite interested in making sure his guests feel comfortable and enjoy their time exploring Taupo. The room is very...

You perfectly described our servicing process - thank you. And Dennis loves his role as guest host. We meet such a lot of interesting people in this place and the guests make our little Motel what it is. Regards Fran

Booked a room for 2 adults and 2 kids under 8 years old. Room was spacious, clean, and nearby town with a beautiful lake front view. The owners were very helpful and friendly. It would have been nice if they would have made the beds when they serviced the room. A great place to getaway!

We stayed in studio B on July 1st 2016. We were received very warmly by the hosts and they were helpful in recommending a place to have dinner. We booked the spa (free) for later that evening and had a very relaxing time. The studio was spotless, you can tell they take a lot of pride in their work. It...

Stayed a couple of nights on two occasions. Located 5 mins drive from the town centre, across the road from yacht club. Mid range price, very clean unit with all amenities, good free wifi and friendly and helpful owners. Would recommend here.

Had a very pleasant stay at this family run motel. Tremendous and enthusiastic welcome from the hosts to make sure we were settled and comfortable for what was a very cold night. Plus provided lots of much appreciated suggestions / hints / tips for our journey the next day down to Wellington. We stayed in a cosy room with two...

At this time of year, and especially when the nights are frosty, we turn the heaters on for incoming guests around 4pm so their rooms are warm when they walk in the door. We want our guests to feel welcome as soon as they open their door and nothing does that better than a warm room! Thanks for the feedback...

We were in awe from the moment we made the booking, and have not stopped talking to friends and family about how wonderful the owners are. They were so friendly over the phone when we made the booking, we could not wait to meet them. Their customer service is exceptional and we appreciate that they went out of their way...

We arrived after a long journey and had a great welcome. I had two kids and three dogs which had been stuck in the kombi for 4 hours so arriving was a bit chaotic. The host was understanding and forgiving The unit was warm and welcoming and very comfortable Highly recommend

Thanks for endorsing our smallest room. It may be compact but it gives great value for money and is really quiet! Guests love the fact that it looks out onto a grass reserve as well as into the motel garden. Regards Fran

We stayed at Accent for 2 nights, and find the host very thoughtful and helpful in recommending us places to visit. The rooms are spacious, clean and comfortable. It was two cold nights and the soft fleece covers provided were very warm and cozy. Will definitely stay here again when I come back to Taupo

I love the rugs too! And as winter settles in they get a lot of use! Will be looking for new colours for this winter to jazz up the room and keep our guests toastie. Cheers Fran

Owners were very friendly and helpful, especially good at giving helpful local information for those travelling with a dog. There is an Off leash area right behind the hotel and an easy walk to the Three Mile Bay, Taupo, which is also off leash. They only have two units they allow dog in, so it is very important that you...

Thanks for endorsing the need to contact us regarding your pets. We occasionally have guest book a non-pet room and shuffling things around to accommodate them can be a challenge. Much better to ring us and organise the right room at the beginning. Regards Fran
