There are certainly good and bad points go staying here. The location is the highlight as you are by the beautiful lake with incredible views. However as many others have said you are by a main road on a weekend not so bad however week day very noisy. Not good if you are a light sleeper. The showers by the lake were small only two showers however very clean. The kitchen area was very small. I Understand that there is some work to be done to make them bigger and more modern. The distance to taupo is quite long over 30 minutes which was a bit of a pain. When checking in I asked for top recommendations and the lady although very sweet didn't seem confident enough to tell me other than go into to taupo. Overall i did like the place as to wake up and have the view if the lake was perfect.
Thank LynseyUK55

Hello Lynsey, Can't thank you enough for the candid review. We love your feedback and we will ensure that all staff are given more training on the things to do in area... as there is plenty! Yes, you're right! We will be refurbing all amenities blocks in the next 6 months and completely new blocks on the lakeside are in the process of being approved now. We love the view too :) Thanks again!

I had just purchased a Jayco Pengin Pop Top and was travelling from Wellington to Auckland. First time out with 'Poppie' so I was quite nervous. The staff at Motutere Bay were fantastic. They put me in a site where I just had to back straight in - no fancy stuff!
The kitchen and shower/toilet facilities were spotless.
The place is looking great, keep it up.
Thank Judith G

Motutere Bay is a beutiful place to stay one night with family or friends because they have nice deals (now they offer you the possibility to choose how much you want to pay) and really friendly workers. You can literaly stay in front of the lake.

We camped right by the lake which was very peaceful and pleasant. Nice place to stay during the day after a hectic day skydiving. The only problem is that there’s nothing else around so you have to drive to town to get supplies. Also, the trucks can be quite loud as you’re camped by a main road.

Hi Julian, Thank-you for taking the time to give us your feedback and yes we agree its a lovely peaceful spot in a beautiful location. We are situated 15 mins from the nearest town of Turangi and 45 mins to the town of Taupo and our shop stocks a range of every day items such as groceries, snack foods, confectionery, soft drinks, bait and fishing tackle, toiletries, newspapers and much more. Yes the lakeside camp area is adjacent to the State Highway and can be quite busy and noisy from time to time so apologies if this wasn't clearly communicated to you as we would have accommodated you on another camp site away from the traffic noise. Come back and see us again!

The three of us stayed in a self-contained one-bedroom cabin, which was warm and cosy. Although the outside temperature was cold, we had a good heater, which was turned on for us before we arrived. There were plenty of blankets and the beds were very comfortable. The cooking facilities and equipment in the cabin were ideal for making easy family meals. Motutere is away from the main town, which was a plus for us. Our cabin had a view of the lake and was just a short walk across the road to get to the lake edge.
