Pros: My husband and I absolutely loved our stay at this amazing much more private version of a B&B. We had our own suite with a gorgeous updated bathroom and soaking tub. The water pressure was amazing. Our king sized bed was also very comfortable and had a fabulous view over Lake Taupo. The breakfast was over the top and we at it on our private back porch overlooking the lake with a gorgeous sunrise. My husband caught a trout and the owners even got us a bigger pan to cook his huge trout on our own gas grill. There is a small kitchenette for easy cooking if desired. We definitely want to return to this beautifully landscaped piece of heaven.

8.0 Excellent
Pros: Lovely location and great view. Nice comfortable and clean place with great spa bath.
Cons: Would be great if there was an option for the very loud fan to not go on every time you turn on the bathroom light - especially at night. Also was disconcerting realising how much you could see at night when looking into bathroom with light on. Sound proofing in rooms could be a little better also.
9.2 Excellent
Pros: The free guest laundry with everything supplied including drying racks. Small kitchenette allowed for breakfast and afternoon nibbles
Cons: Nothing really
9.0 Excellent
Pros: Friendly staff, clean and comfortable accommodation. The apartment well maintained and fully equipped and every thing was working properly. Directly on the lake with very nice views of the lake and Mt Tongariro
Cons: It was a pity that the accommodation is a little out of the center, making that you more easily take the car to go for dinner or so, rather than walking along the beautiful shoreline. But honestly that is a bit of a luxury problem.

Pros: Great beds. Super dark curtains!
10.0 Excellent
Pros: We arrived late afternoon after a 5 hour drive from Wellington. The first impression was, WOW, how good is this place. The reception was warm and welcoming and gave the impression nothing was too much trouble. A well set out suite that included everything, and I mean everything including washing up liquid. I'm not sure what it would take to make this place better, we loved the place. 10 out of 10. We are going back next year. Oh, and Taupo's not too bad a place either.
Cons: I was really upset that the break was so short.
10.0 Excellent
Pros: Well appointed accommodation with good facilities. Good location across road from the lake, quiet area, but within easy walking distance of the town (20 mins along lake front), with restaurants closer to the motel if preferred. Owners helpful and informative about the activities in the area. Views from the motel across the lake to the mountains are stunning.
Cons: Nothing
