      Friendly owner very helpfull asked him to charge my phone he did one better and gave me a loan of universal charger

      Quite cold first day but it was cold outside

    • Group of friends

      Affordable and reasonably close to city centre. Friendly owner/operator who personally looked after us. No hassle to provide portacot for the baby. After our event (half marathon) we were welcome back to use the showers before driving back home.

    • Family with children

      it was within walking distance to the town. it was a budget motel.

      the cleaning of the rooms or the lack of cleaning. we stayed for six nights and in that time our unit wasn't vacuumed or the bathroom cleaned. this meant that by the end of the stay there was mould on the window sills in the bedroom and in the bathroom there was mould growing up the wall behind the door. three nights we had to go to the office to get a towel as they only left 4 when 5 of us had checked in. the cleaning staff really let the place down.

    • Older travelers

      Helpful & friendly staff. Spotless large room with separate bedroom, lounge/kitchen and bathroom. Very peaceful and quiet. Good value.

      Nothing negative.

    • Family with children
      7.0

      This motel suited our needs perfectly. We just wanted reasonably priced accomodation for a one night stay. It was clean and comfortable.

      The hot water only lasted around 7mins which we were not told so no good for a family of five, thats for sure. We were not told this on arrival but found out through others.

    • Group of friends
      8.4

      The fact that we could bring our dog as she is very much part of the family.

      We didn't like the shower it is too close to the wall and an upgrade would make it perfect.

    • Older travelers
      9.6

      The owners were very friendly it was convenient for walking to town,

    • Family with children

      It was affordable, at an expensive time of year.

    • Couple
      5.0

      The room was simple but very clean, and the motel is in a very quiet (if less than salubrious looking) area of Taupo: we couldn't hear any traffic and only birds in the morning.

      There was some confusion with the proprietor about the price quoted by Booked.net. Apparently the price I was quoted was for 1 adult, when I had entered 2 in the search and the email said "for 2 people" just below the line reading "the quoted price is for 1 person" that he studiously pointed out. A quibble over the price wasn't the best start to our stay (especially when the issue seemed to be with the website, not with me) and I found him unsympathetic. Thankfully he agreed to only charge me the nz$83, not the nz$95 he wanted to charge for 2 people (if the price had been $95 I'd have stayed somewhere nicer). Then he told us the hot water in the room lasted 7 minutes and 40 seconds, and he wasn't kidding about that. I don't think that's really adequate in a room with a 3 person capacity. We were only there to sleep for one night, but I wouldn't stay there again.

      Good sized room for 2 people and clean and comfortable for a budget motel

      Small hot water tank which meant only one person could shower for 4 minutes before the tank was empty. Then had to wait for it to reheat. To be fair the owner did say we could use the communal showers if we needed to but would have been nice to be able to use the private one in the room. Also no hairdryer in the room

    • Family with children
      4.2

      Friendly and accomodating staff did give us a refund on second nights accomodation-thankyou! Did have electric blankets thank goodness

      Very cold with rattly fan heaters only heating available not satisfactory and very unsafe,stained and broken seating,shower head very poor and not enjoyable to have a shower under at all.

    • Family with children
      3.8

      Dirty, very old and uncomfortable. Carpet had stains on it, couch was ripped with hairs all over it, shower was dreadful, electric points hidden behind the bed and dangerous. Awful experience. We just wanted to get home to a clean environment.

      Convient , we needed to go to a funeral

      Bathroom and kitchen area looking abit tired, maybe time for a spruce up !

    • Single
      7.8

      Only place I stayed on New Zealand trip that recognised single occupancy and reduced price without being asked!

      Turned out to be mixed accommodation with cabins on site with kitchen and ablutions block. Not a problem just not expected .
