"Nice hotel. Require a car to get to town centre."
Stayed 3 nights. Bed very comfortable. Room large. Bathroom large with double basins, heated floor, heated towel rail, separate shower and separate bath. Fairly long walk from carpark to rooms. While we were there our room didn't get serviced until late in the day, but admittedly we were there around New Zealand's most religious day (the Rugby World Cup Final and they won) so this may not always be the case. Oh and the hotel stands up well to an earthquake. We had a 5.4 quake while we were there. Scary. Or maybe it was just the whole country jumping for joy at the win. The Wallabies will get them next time.

This is the second time we have stayed at this motel. Staff were very accommodating with our late arrival and even took our breakfast order over the phone while we were travelling. Room was very tidy and the bed was a generous King. Spa right next to bed was a bonus.

We stayed over the long weekend. There was convenient parking right outside our door. The restaurant is reasonably priced if you don't want to be bothered going into Taupo. There was no air conditioner and at this time of year (End October) there was no need. It may be different in Summer. We have found AC is a necessity in NZ in Summer now. The room was very comfortable. There is no kitchenette so no point in buying groceries.
