Spotlessly clean and comfortable. Fantastic lighting in bathroom and bright comfortable lighting in room. Fresh milk👍. Generous tea, coffee, chocolate sachets and plunger coffee. Microwave. Lovely bedlinen. Didn't like the lack of a privacy lock and put the chair back under the door handle as I was alone. My only complaint, otherwise perfect. Forgot to mention at checkout. CAROL

Me and my partner loved our room, it was definately a steal at the price we got it for. Was not expecting it to be as big as it was. Spa pool was absolutely perfect for a night soak, private yet outside, with the perfect temp. Could see the lake and the lights of town from our balcony Loved it! Check in was smooth and easy, will definately be choosing to stay here when i visit Taupo often.
