Very clean, well maintained, has everything a traveler needs to stop in Taupo. Close to swimming beach( across the road). We stayed in a room with private mineral spa, it was just the right temperature and enclosed from weather elements.

Hello, service was great. Very friendly and welcoming. Bedding and bathroom/living were clean. The rooms upstairs/stairwell are in need of a paint. Facilities in the room were great - dishwasher/microwave/oven/fridge were all clean and in good condition. Lovely central spot close to the lake. Would definitely stay again.
