4/10 Fair

Spacious, comfortable, and spotless
Drove past the property the first time as the entrance is actually at the back of the photo depicted online and only has a small size with the name. I gather that it is a private house rented out as accommodation. I did not like coming to this when this was not my understanding of what it is. There was no clear information at the front door, not even a doorbell. We were greeted with a partially opened door and given the key. I did not like not being warmly welcomed nor having no reception area to come into. We booked a room with a view - this was clearly stated on the booking page with, where the room below stated no view. When we arrived we were given a room downstairs at the back of the house - with no view. When I questioned this, I was told the room with a view cost more and that the website put rooms together. This needs to be made much clearer as I did not get what I booked. I also really disliked having to walk around the side of the house, on the grass, in the rain to get to the room we were in. This was not a welcoming way to get in. I did appreciate getting help promptly with the heat pump, but this was something that perhaps could have been checked and sorted before our arrival as the issue was blamed on the previous people staying.

Great comfortable room
We were arriving bit late, but check-in was smooth because of the great communication they made before arrival. Room was wide and comfy that was worth more than we paid.

Beautiful with an "Exclusive Lodge" style feel...
I stayed here back in 2010 and loved it, and staying nearly 8 years later again, I do believe it is in even better condition and style than then with the same hosts. Spacious and so much room, beyond words in style and comfort, cleanliness and warm and welcoming owners. Definitely in line with exclusive self contained accomodation which I would happily pay double the rate for. The top room has a wonderful balcony looking over Taupo from the hillside about 2kms from town. Totally recommend this...

8/10 Very good

Lovely outlook from the windows
It appears to be a big, purpose built house with 6 separate apartments - we drove right past it the first time! Parked right outside our door. Our upstairs apartment was nice and spacious, sparsely furnished perhaps, but everything available for two people. The lounge windows pull back fully, so we moved the little table there and 2 chairs and drank wine with nibbles looking out at the lovely view, across the lake down to the snowy mountains in the distance. The bedroom gets the afternoon sun. Probably a 4 minute easy drive to town, not far at all. Very affordable price for Taupo, would stay again.

Discreet address
This hotel blends into the surrounding expensive houses and does not have hotel signs outside it. Inside is very elegant and spacious, lovely furniture and fixtures, very clean bathroom with separate shower. There are stairs up to the bedroom (s). It has a very nice outlook over Taupo with a glimpse of the lake. There are trees surrounding the hotel.
