    The room was tidy and the view was excellent. The staff were very welcoming & we thoroughly enjoyed our stay

    There was only a couple of things that were a little off. We had a little spa bath but the jets didnt work and we had a trail of ants in our bathroom at one stage. Either were not really a problem at all.

    Our apartment had a view of Lake Taupo and the sunset one night was fantastic. One good restaruant close by, Ploughman Inn, need a car otherwise. Try Portofino. The apartment needs a proper heater instead of a blow heater which turns itself on all night. Shower is average, beds are average. We ended up sleeping in separate rooms. The beds did have plenty of bedding and electric blankets. Overall for price quite reasonable.

    Room stunk of cigarette smoke after requesting non smoking and double room came with two single beds pushed together which is unacceptable.

    Superb

    The resort Owner/Manager/Receptionist was great, she was friendly, welcoming and helpful. Her knowledge of the region was extensive which was useful as we were from out of town. the facilties were of a high standard and the view from your balcony overlooking Lake Taupo was breath taking. Throughly enjoyed our stay there and will definitely stay again if we are in that region. Overall 10 out of 10.

    Easy access from road. Easy to find. Large spacious room. Very large bathroom. Double bed comfortable.

    Cold. Heating inadequate. Wall heater very noisy. No electric blankets on small beds. No spare blankets. Needs a good paint and decorate as decor very outdated. Kitchen drawer stiff and not closing properly. Light switches difficult to find. Dining chairs uncomfortable and falling apart. Lounge suite not positioned for easy television viewing. Access not adequate for those who have mobility problems - no hand rail and stairs extremely slippery when wet.

    Very good

    Manager was very friendly and helpful. Rooms were clean and comfortable.

    Website we booked our rooms through didn't allow us to book in more then 2 people although it was a 2 bedroom unit with 4 beds. Would have like to know the cost when booking for four people.

    Very good

    I liked the vuiew from the Spa Pool to the lake ...Worth the trip . The rooms are a bit spare and could do with more pictures and flowers . Jazzing the rooms up a wee bit and make them warmer .

    The Heater in our unit was a disaster , Too noisy and not effective .The rooms need modern Heat Pumps . Taupo is cold..

    Good

    The comfy king size bed. The view. Thef friendliness of staff. Close to town but not 'in town'.

    Room wasn't 'made up ' during the day. Toilet roll and tissues not replaced. Could make out if liquid soap was two different kindsof soap or if one was shampoo??? Vegetation was overgrown around very narrow driveway. Parking was restricted.
