Super friendly and helpful staff. Room was absolutely spotless and very clean. Parking was easy and safe. It was a little noisy (nothing too excessive) but understandable being a long weekend. Overall a great stay

This was a nice tidy room that had everything we needed for our night's stay. The pools were great too and the manager was very friendly. We will stay here again the next time we are in Taupo.

8/10 Very good

Nice well kept room. Great heated pool and spa's which the kids loved. Very good location, close enough to walk in to town without all the noise of being right in the thick of it.

10/10 Exceptional

Clean, quiet, comfortable, very nice room facilities. Even had a view of the lake from the balcony of the room. Can’t fault the service provided. The most inconvenient part was the awkwardness of the car parking, it was a full carpark (that’s not the problem, that’s expected with a full occupancy) but it was difficult to maneuver around the big columns/poles in the way especially with big SUVs and utes taking up more space. Luckily had a small car to squeeze into an awkward space otherwise would have needed to park on the road.

Nice enough room but the bin had not been changed since the previous tenants and was full to the brim (ick).
