Luxurious feel in lobby and reception, and rooms, well appointed, well priced and wonderfully friendly staff. Views are amazing! This exceeded our expectations in every way. One of the best properties in Taupo hands down.

Premium price paid compared with the Hilton and the Cove for a very underwhelming room. Both the exterior and the bathroom are long overdue for refurbishment

It was very good, staff were excellent, room was excellent, I should have researched the property more, as there was a fabulous pool but I did not take swimwear, the beds were the most comfortable I have slept in at a motel, but there was a constant tapping noise through the night, it was very windy outside, and the toilet would not flush on first flush, this could be due to the green policy they have ?great location and fabulous place to stay
