Thank you for your feedback. We're glad you enjoyed your stay. The Air con may need a service, we can look into that shortly. Water pressure is something we have investigated, but requires a major renovation. Many thanks Raymond and Olivia.

Loved having my teenage grandsons in their own room. Friendly welcome from the owner. The unit was very clean with parking right outside my room. The motel is very close to Taupo's CBD and restaurants.
