              Totally easy. Helpful operators. Adequate kitchen equip. Spa in room watching TV was a 1st for us :)

              The only improvement I can suggest is the spa lavender smelled like toilet cleaner..try another brand. Best of luck.We enjoyed our stay.

              The service is fantastic! We came 4 hours early before check-ins could be accepted and they allowed us in. Really really appreciated it, after a long drive. Very very accommodating and helpful, just wish we had more time

              The welcome we received from Julie, and the cottage atmosphere of the units, the closeness to the lake and walkways, and the views. All in all a very pleaasant 1 night stay. Tony Parker

              It was different from the more modern glass and concrete large motor inns. Older cottage style 2 level unit with some Lake view and a balcony to enjoy a coffee on. It was very comfortable, clean, good spa and at back gate was the Lake Taupo for as long a walk that you wanted to do either left or right. Quiet and good parking.

              Wonderful experience - staff were very welcoming and helpful. Would definitely recommend to others looking for a bit of time away

              The hosts were really great, their service was prompt and were really friendly, was very patient to introduce attractions nearby and helps you with laundry. I booked a standard room (was travelling by myself) and got upgraded to a suite with kitchen and a garden because they haven't finished tidying my room at the time I arrived. Fantasic!! Really comfortable suite, free in-room wi-fi, off-street parking. absolutely amazing!! better hotel I ever stayed at in 2 week NZ holiday!!

              Nice and quiet very clean good location Handy to lake.

              Tv needs upgrading could only get 2or 3 chanels double bed too small

              Easy to find. The reception was very pleasant and helpful. Hotel was super comfortable and warm. Loved being near the lake to be able to go for a walk, it was gorgeous!

              I meant to fill in the questionnaire about the spa bath while I was there but I forgot, my thoughts were that it was a little dated having it there and it looked a little tired. Could easily have a spa room for people to go have a spa if they wanted one instead. Also the tv was way too small, we would have watched a movie but it had heaps of graphic animation and would have been silly watching it on that tiny tv. Probably wouldn't cost that much to upgrade it.

              Dated but charming rooms, the spa was a lovely touch as was the sitting area on the 2nd floor of the room. Service was very friendly and the price was very reasonable. Would certainly stay again if I returned to Taupo.

              The bathroom was tiny, the shower curtain kept coming in to the shower and sticking to my leg

              As with most places in New Zealand, the hosts were just so friendly. They are in the latter stages of updating all units, and freely admitted the unit that I stayed in had a lot of work to do on it. But I still had a spa in the room, and a lake view, and the unit had everything you would expect. .

              Only downside is thte motel was about 4km from Taupo, so if you want to eat out, you either have a long walk, or have to drive as there is not much locally

              Quiet- close to the lake walkway--pleasant area---relaxing.View of the lake-very friendly staff and helpful!

              Kitchen upstairs- very noisy if the other person wants a sleep-in! No lounges to relax on while watching t.v.--- shower area, very small.

              Excellent helpful staff, comfortable and quiet, nice touches-E.G. Lavender gel for the relaxing spa, private garden area, good value for money, tourist information written on white board in the reception area, discount for repeat stay, attention to detail, genuine desire to help visitor and make their stay a pleasant one, sincere in their thanks for repeat business.
