We've stayed several times at the Taupo Hilton and every time has been a pleasurable experience. I did make the mistake of not asking for a room with a bath this time, however the hotel spa pool compensated admirably for a long hot soak. Staff were incredibly obliging and friendly and we were welcomed like old friends. A complimentary bottle of wine and card was hand delivered to our room when the staff found out it was wedding anniversary which was totally unexpected but such a lovely gesture. Make sure to try out your pillow before the evening gets too late as there is a pillow-menu to ensure you have a good night's sleep. On this occasion we dined in town which is only a five minute drive away.

Very nice accommodation, brand new only open 9 weeks. Friendly staff, but a major faux pas- no SKY and the rugby was on that weekend! Rooms were very clean, tidy and compact, but lacked any indoor/outdoor flow, compact but functional kitchenette. There was a pool and spa outside but no seating area to enjoy it. Ample car parking and convenient location.
Quest Taupe provides stylishly furbished studio one and two bedroom apartment accommodation and is available for all short …More
Great place to stay. Handy to central township. Would like to see house keeping vacuum and clean bathroom better when staying for multiple nights but other than that very good. Great staff on reception and bar.
Stay in New Zealand’s volcanic heartland with our Taupo accommodation. Here you’ll explore some of New Zealand’s finest untouched, uncrowded and unique landscapes while learning about the natural changes that shaped one of the country’s most fascinating regions.
Taupo sits on the edge of Lake Taupo, which was created by a gigantic volcanic eruption in 181AD. The lake is the largest in Australasia and measures 616 square kilometres – that’s as big as Singapore! Despite its violent creation, Lake Taupo’s sandy beaches and deep blue waters make it an ideal place to take a dip or go on a fishing trip. The volcanic nature of the region has also formed a number of thermal parks and hot pools. Head to the Orakei Korako Geothermal Wonderland, where you can watch bubbling mud pools and gushing geysers or take a tour of Ruatapu Cave, one of only two caves in the world located in a geothermal field.
Taupo’s natural wonders don’t end there. Take a five minute drive along Waikato River to view the Huka Falls, one of the most visited and photographed attractions in New Zealand. Listen to the roaring rapids and admire the rich blue river as you stroll between viewing platforms. Daredevils can hop on a jet boat and ride the falls! Equally enthralling is Mine Bay, where you can take a boat or kayak and come face-to-face with huge rock carvings.
Taupo’s CBD comes with everything you’d expect from one of New Zealand’s top destinations. Stroll through Taupo’s high street for big label outlets, boutiques and art galleries – perfect if you want to pick up a souvenir or simply want to treat yourself. If you’re planning an adventure, Taupo also has many sports and adventure shops selling speciality equipment. Continue your adventure in Waikato and Waitomo, Eastland, and Manawatu, all close to Taupo.
So wot are you waiting for? Our range of Taupo accommodation will get you on your way to this volcanic wonderland in no time.
