      Conveniently located near the township - nice to be able to walk beside the lake. Was easy to find

      Friendly managers, handy location clean and tidy, value for money

      Just a bit old and tired

      The unit was comfortable and big enough for 4 adults. Well equipped kitchen.

      Found the owner to be quite in your face and not very polite. The shower ran cold after 3 short showers. One person had to have a cold shower - not good enough from a motel which says it has thermal springs! Also had to pay on check in- not at check out as it should be.

      The room was decent size and was well set out and tidy

      The guy who was running the place wasnt very welcoming at all. He didnt like the fact that we had booked online and that the booking agent Booked.net had taken money away for the booking. So he charged me $60 for my 7week old baby that didn't use any facilities nor bedding provided. As we had 2 x couples staying he was very strict about only one car being in the venue at any one time and the other would be towed if if was parked in the facility. Also my friend turned up 30min prior to us and the guy wouldnt let these people check in or get into the room until we arrived in town. I will never recommend this accommodation to anyone.

      The most I could say is it was sufficient space and clean

      Very old decor and not on the lakefront as advertised but next to main road which goes along lakefront. Noisy and little view of lake at all - only through car park sideways between buildings and thick bushes. Grossly overpriced!!!!!! If price was $50 less it woul have seemed ok.

    • Family with children

      Location was good, staff were friendly. Family room set up was good.

      Not good value for money, overpriced for accomodation provided. Units were not well insulated and were able to hear conversations and movements in other units. Looked liked units were just painted over to tidy up not done to a reasonable standard. It appears that the same price is charged for this unit as the ones in the area but units are not up to the same standard.

      I enjoy staying in this motel and my kids likes it aswell good

      Greeting by owner was pleasant and the room whilst a bit dated was clean and tidy. The beds were extremely comfortable. Having our own little mineral pool was a fun experience too.

      The overhead windows letting in the light were annoying. Would be nice to put up curtains to let those of us who like a darker room have the choice. There is limited hot water for the inside shower. Not enough for 2 females with long hair. One of us had to make a trip to the (private) outside shower with hair full of shampoo - would not like to do this in the middle of winter.

      The rooms were clean and comfortable and the linen was of good quality, they provided an extra face flannel to wash off makeup and extra towels for the spa bath, the owners are pleasant and were visible throughout the day

      television was too small and the channel choices were poor also we were only offered milk on arrival, the extra face flannel was only there on day one, we were out between nine and ten the following morning which is when the information states the rooms are cleaned but our room was over looked as they thought we were in even though we had pulled the drape back when we left and so when they were ready to clean the room we were right in the middle of hosting visitors and felt we needed to leave the motel room to accommodate the cleaners The spa bath looked nothing like the picture on the booking website so we felt a little mislead, I am recommending the Lakefront Motel but with reservations

      Location, good view of the lake. Quiet at night.

      Not a flash motel but clean and quiet.

      location was fine and what I paid was as much as I would pay for the place given what else is on offer in Taupo. However I will not stay here again sorry.

      * dated interior * poor wireless connectivity * long grey hairs on bed covers - yuk! * terrible reception on TV * The owners were nice enough but I think a lick of paint and new linen would go a long way

      it was a great place to stay close to town across the road from the lake and nice and private

    • Family with children

      What I liked most about the Lakefront Motor Lodge was the cleanliness of our room and the facilities. It was very private and relaxing. We will revisit this motor lodge again.
