Awful, tried to put me into smaller unit than what had been booked. Unit had non working lights , heaters did not work, No tea or coffee sachets or milk supplied, No soap in fitted dispensers, Old toilet roll had been wet and dried out. Other units had been let out to long term tenants who argued and used foul language. Rubbish and alcohol cans strewn around parking area and not cleaned up at any time. Unable to contact office to have anything put right and at checkout manager then decided he did not speak English. Credit card fees deducted on arrival not at finish. Do NOT stay here

Most awful experience ever
We had previously stayed in this motel few years back and was happy with it, however the owners seem to have changed and when we got there they got our booking dates wrong and said they didn't have a room for us. There was also another family trying to check in and their booking was "cancelled". It was a busy weekend in taupo and we had nowhere else to go as all hotels in taupo, turangi and rotorua were fully booked! definitely not impressed. I suspect the owners resold the rooms for a higher price given demand is high. will never ever book there again, it was really stressful ringing around to find emergency accomodation at the start of a holiday!

This was our third stay at this property and both times previously have been very good, hence us rebooking. This stay, however, was very disappointing. We booked a 1 Queen Bed, Balcony with lake views room (which we have stayed in previously) & on arrival we were told that room was booked & we were put in a room with no balcony or lake view. When we questioned this we were told we must have got confused with a sister property closer to the lake! We had to ask for towels, a power board, a rubbish bin & had to finish making up our bed with blankets. The kitchen crockery & cutlery were grubby (we washed everything before using it) & the microwave was a complete no go!! When we came to clean up before we left we found tissues under the bed (yuck) and no sink plug in the kitchen. We hardly saw the “manager” & the neighbouring units were noisy (loud boom box speakers). Such a shame. We won’t be staying again!

Dropped in standard since last visit.
We have stayed here before, but this time we noticed a drop in standard of cleanliness. The kitchen floor was very sticky like it hadn’t been washed and there was a bottle lid and a dead cockroach behind the curtain.
