Thank you for your feedback. We're glad you enjoyed your stay. The Air con may need a service, we can look into that shortly. Water pressure is something we have investigated, but requires a major renovation. Many thanks Raymond and Olivia.

Loved having my teenage grandsons in their own room. Friendly welcome from the owner. The unit was very clean with parking right outside my room. The motel is very close to Taupo's CBD and restaurants.

Clean, convenient (close to shops, cafes), comfortable, warm (weather cold when we stayed). Great for bringing our dog. Our unit had a back door with a lawn outside so easy and perfect for his needs. We had accidentally double-booked and they were very helpful sorting this out.
