Reviewed 11 November 2011

Great place to get the best view of the lake and the snow capped Tongariro in the backgroung. It is right in front of the hot water beach, and far enough away from the road to be quiet. It has everything you need and the in room spa is very relaxing. Room 5 has the best views

Room Tip: Room 5 has a balcony and views to Acacia Bay and Ruapehu, and you can hear the water lapping , and s...

We stayed here for a night with my husband and three children. The facilities were great and the managers extremely cheerfull and helpful. I would definately stay here again. And the kids loved having a spa in the lounge, a great experience all round, thanks so much.

Room Tip: Any room. thanks

I recently stayed at the Clearwater Motor Lodge on a business trip with my husband. The lady at the counter was lovely, and our room was really spacious & clean. We loved the big spa pool in the room & the TV with Sky & DVD player. Our room had a fantastic view of Lake Taupo & was right on the lakefront - so was a great location. Will be back for my next business trip, thanks!

Room Tip: Get a room with a lakeview - its worth it

My partner and I stayed three nights at Clearwater Motor Lodge and enjoyed every minute of our stay. In fact we liked it so much we hardly left it except for an occasional walk along the lake edge or a short drive into Taupo to do some shopping.
We had a corner room at the Clearwater which afforded us an uninterrupted view of the lake which was immediately accessible from the motel (no road to cross). As a bonus we overlooked a tiny stream which seemed to attract the local birdlife. Being an upstairs room we could lie in bed and gaze at the view. We could also lie in the comfortable in-room thermal spa (the hot water coming from deep under the motel).
This bore also feeds the generous pool situated partially under the lodge, which was useful when there was a brief rain-shower.
Clearwater was immaculate and the service exemplary and friendly. We often talk about our stay there with great fondness and certainly intend returning.

Room Tip: I think we had room 5, which, in the photo on the website of the lodge seen from the lake, is on the...
