Our room was spacious and clean, and the bed was super comfy. We walked to town for dinner (easy walk) and had a fantastic, quiet nights sleep as it is far enough from the waterfront to be a quiet location. Would definitely stay again if the need arises in Taupo. Staff were helpful without being friendly. No grounds for complaint but just felt detached. Walking distance to lake and to what I guess is the city centre. Accommodations were good but not luxury. You get what you pay for the price since it is budget friendly.
