“Second review submitted; original review blocked by owner”
1 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 14 August 2011

The owner requested my first review be blocked; so here it is...again...for a second time. He obviously can not handle any criticism of his exceedingly average motel.

1. Extremely average facilities.
2. Stained carpet in room, particularly around refrigerator where it was obvious leakage had occured for some time.
3. Not sufficient parking in lot so necessary to park on road.
4. Bed obviously cheap; queen bed bowed in middle.
5. Awful smell from water leakage in bathroom.

Told us over telephone he was giving us a great deal. Charged full rack rate at check out.

Recommended local restaurants that turned out to be terrible (was he getting a kick back? Probably).

Wouldn't recommed this dive to my worst enemy.

The owner can talk, but he's full of it...don't trust him.

Nicely tucked away but close enough to the centre. You can drive or walk. Our room was fine, lots of room and lovely big bathroom. We love Taupo.

This motel is a real gem. tucked away up rifle range road away from the hurley-burley [and noise] of the waterfront motels. But only a couple of minutes drive from town.

Clean well-equipped one bedroomed unit was a joy to stay.in. Kitchen area was first class and oh what a wonderful bath.

Great hosts made us feel very welcome and provided useful information on resturants and activities. We would happily stay here again any time.

Nice warm welcome on our arrival. Room was clean and comfortable. Although not in the centre of town its really not far to the restaurants and the lake. A little tight on parking but they manage to fit everyone in somehow.

The charming hosts like to share their hints for good dining places and they love to have a chat with their guests. The studios are very nice and the motel in located in a quiet spot in walking distance to the lake and restaurants.
