Positive Reviews

Attentive service staff

Guests praise the owner and the staff members of the hotel for their friendly demeanour and attentive approach to customer care. There have been several special mentions for the front desk staff on account of their friendly and warm welcome. They reportedly go out of their way to make guests feel comfortable as soon as they enter the property.

Located close to town and Lake Taupo

The hotel’s convenient location in a residential area just minutes away from the town centre makes this a wonderful place to stay, guests often remark. Reviewers love being able to walk to shops, dining options and attractions. Moreover, beautiful Lake Taupo is just a short walk away. The free parking is another excellent bonus.

Clean and well-equipped rooms

The hotel’s rooms are very well designed, spacious and fully equipped with all the facilities required for a hassle-free stay, reviews suggest. Travellers also note that the quarters are usually very clean. The spa baths are also hot favourites with guests staying in some of the units.

Negative Reviews

Small kitchen area

The rooms and bathrooms are quite large in the units but the same cannot be said for the kitchenettes, which are reportedly on the smaller side. Therefore, cooking food can become a slightly harder job, according to self-caterers.

A dated feel

Although the accommodation here is said to be in good condition overall, reviewers do note that the decor and furniture is beginning to look a little tired or dated in some of the quarters.
