Positive Reviews

Friendly employees

Reviews indicate that the people who work at the resort are friendly and do everything that they can to keep guests happy. The restaurant workers, in particular, receive praise from travellers for the effort that they put in.

Nice, quiet location

The hotel sits just outside of Taupo's main central area, so it is away from the crowds, yet it is just across the street from the lake. Visitors find this position ideal because it is quiet, and yet the area's attractions remain accessible.

Good restaurant

There is an on-site restaurant at the resort that serves a very good breakfast, according to guests, and has a nice dinner menu as well. Travellers appreciate having a high-quality restaurant on the premises.

Negative Reviews

Uncomfortable beds

New beds are needed at the resort, guests report, as the current ones feel old and are uncomfortable. Visitors also mention that the blankets are thin and should be replaced.

Lack of in-room facilities

Visitors complain about the rooms not having a microwave or utensils with which to eat. The lack of facilities in the rooms forces guests to eat at a restaurant more often than they would prefer.

Old and dated

The rooms at the hotel are old and dated, according to travellers. As a result, visitors feel as though a renovation of the resort as a whole is in order.
