This was super easy and effective and we were lucky to check in already at 10. The rooms were really spacious and the kitchen was well equipped and had a nice bar to sit and have your breakfast. There were also a front and back porch to choose if you wanted to sit outside. A 5-minute walk took you down to the center of Taupō so there weren’t any reason to take the car and struggle to find a parking. We definitely would like to recommend this place since it felt really homie and comfortable.

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.
