    Hotel is well situated in Taupo with town centre close by. Room was very comfortable and really enjoyed the Spa bath, even though it took 20min to full up.(We where warned). Staff where very friendly and accommodating. Will be staying again.

    Great host. Nice location, just a few minutes walk on the lakefront from the centre of Taupo, and very convenient for the beach. Thermal swimming pool and tubs a real bonus.
