Comfortable motel. Parking is very tight when motel is full. Handy to town. Quiet No one would answer the bell in reception (rang twice) for check out so just left key.

Hi there. Thanks for taking the time to leave a review. I sincerely apologise for not hearing the bell, I am usually in rooms preparing them for housekeeping staff as soon as guests start to leave and there was a period where portable buzzer was not working and therefor caused me to miss multiple guests when checking-out. In terms of parking, unfortunately this is out of our control due to the layout of the property. We do offer guests parking out the front of the complex when we are full to reduce it being so compact at the rear however is usually suggested to guests with bigger vehicles. We are please however that you did manage to have a comfortable stay while with us and would love to see you again should you choose to visit Taupo. Kindest Regards, ExecutiveMotelTaupoTeam
