    Great property, have stayed there twice, good location, heaps of rooms that offer different sleeping arrangements for large groups, 3 bathrooms (1 an impressive en-suite) & the thermal spa pool is just the thing after a long day. Come to Taupo regularly & if possible will always try & stay there.

  • Great house that suited our needs perfectly

    Great house that suited our needs perfectly. Only additions that would be helpful would be heating in the bedrooms and it was annoying having to take our rubbish with us. As you have to pay a compulsory cleaning fee it would have been better if rubbish was part of this cleaning.

    Owner/manager responds:

    Dear Guest, thank you for your feed back. We take all comments seriously as we strive to make your stay enjoyable. The heating in the bedrooms? There are three natural gas heaters and each bedroom has spare blankets and hot water bottles plus electric oil column heaters stored in the wardrobes. The rubbish is always a problem. The cleaning contractors will not do the rubbish so it would mean another contractor and that means more cost . regards Ian/Judith owners
