Friendly staff

Guests invariably describe the staff here as friendly and approachable. They are said to offer great customer service and really take care of those staying at the motel.

Negative Reviews

Exterior noise

Situated right on Taupo's busy lakeside thoroughfare, guests say that exterior noise is an issue here. In addition to the din of passing vehicles, many find that the noise of passers-by filters into units.

Limited Wi-Fi access

Many dislike the fact that this motel offers a very limited Wi-Fi access, which appears to set a cap on how much free data guests can use. This issue routinely proves to be troublesome for both leisure and business guests.

Tight parking

Parking is a common complaint here. Guests say that, when this property is operating at full capacity, they struggle to find space for their vehicles in this motel's car park.
