8/10 Very good

Very friendly and accommodating owner.
Booked the wrong unit online. Booked the 2bedrooms unit which can only comfortably sleep 5 but we have 6people. Ended up, we talked to the reception and they gladly changed our room to a unit that can sleep 6. 2queen beds and 2twin beds. Motel was very near town and amenities. So it's just walking distance and very convenient to food and shops.

4/10 Fair

Hotel near Lake Taupo
The bathroom and WC facilities were poor with doors that didn't close and the general bathroom layout and standard of modern expectations were below an expected minimum standard for a Hotel that claims to have family facilities. Room wasn't properly serviced and no toilet paper are just some of the issues regarding this Hotel. Despite being given wifi access, the wifi failed to work for the whole stay. The swimming pool had defective perimeter drainage and the floor was flooded. Overall the family room requires and urgent upgrade to at least meet modern family requirements.

Great but no hot water!
Great hotel, great staff, comfy beds but no hot water in the shower in the morning, staff indifferent and said the hotel was full so sometimes the hot water runs cold. Shame as the rest of the stay was great.

This is a fantastic motel, beds were so comfortable and the rooms spacious enough for a family. The host was very friendly and helpful, he took time to make sure that everything went smoothly with our stay. Will definitely stay here again.
