We liked the location and value for money. We felt the second bedroom was a tight squeeze with the twin bedding configuration as the door could not shut unless the beds were moved.

This was my second stay here - Both times business trips. The shared space meant that colleagues and I were able to work in the same space until late at night before going to bed in our own rooms. Checking in have been awesome on both occasions and has a certain "welcome to our home" feel. It is located around the corner from restaurants, bars, and shops, which have been super convenient after a long day (and when you forget to pack a toothbrush). Will definitely stay here again when I work in Taupo and would highly recommend this establishment for business and persona trips.
