Room was still being cleaned after check in. No hot water for a day. Poor service. The Manager's response was to boil water with the room kettle. There is no after hour emergency contact. So if there is any problem with the room, such as the hot water problem, there is no way to report it or get assistance. Bedding provided was for summer and not all all for winter in Taupo. The bedding used for the sleeper couch was a mattress protector in between two sheets. Booked for 3 people and there was only pillows, cups and glasses for two. Towels were too small, old and worn. Horrible food smells coming from the kitchen.

We didn't have hot water for the whole stay!! We took kids to Taupo during their school holiday for one night, likely it was just one night,we could not have shower because of no hot water,the rooms we had are two separate rooms sharing a bathroom used to be disable public toilet bathroom, and it's freezing in there with cold water only!! It's terrible experience in middle of cold winter we have to suffer cold water with every use!
