Positive Reviews

Rooms are clean

Visitors rave about the cleanliness of the rooms, saying that they are spotless. Being able to relax in a clean room is one of the highlights for travellers spending time at this property.

Centrally located

The hotel enjoys a central location in Taupo and travellers enjoy being able to walk to most parts of the town from its position. Guests say that a vehicle isn't necessary to head to the town's main dining areas.

Good common kitchen

There is a common kitchen area at the property and visitors love having access to it and cooking their own meals. Being able to cook for themselves helps those on a budget keep costs under control.

Negative Reviews

Noisy beds

Beds in the lodge's dorms squeak with even the slightest movement, according to travellers, which is very disruptive when trying to sleep at night. Guests would like to see the lodge replace the bed frames.

Unexpected shared bathrooms

Many of the private rooms at the hotel have shared bathrooms and visitors who do not know this ahead of time are disappointed with this setup.

Slow Wi-Fi

Free WI-Fi is available at the hotel, but travellers complain that it is very slow and, therefore, difficult to use.
