  • The accommodation was superb. The bedroom being very comfortable with the bed being sooooo comfortable. We also found the staff on duty were very friendly and helpful and the evening buffet dinner on saturday night was of very high class, but friday nights was cold. We will certainly come again and stay one day though.. 5

  • Stayed for two nights and our family of 4 was very comfortable and happy. Great facilities with lots to offer for every family member. There are two pools, but one off to the side of the resort seemed almost completely neglected and dirty. The breakfast buffet was fantastic and it was a great way to start a day of activity. We did not take part in any of the dinners because taupo offers such a variety of good restaurants. We would definitely stay here again. 5

  • Confusion over dinners, like others. I thought there were two included, but only one. Reception also informed us there was only one breakfast, but later corrected their mistake. The food was good, but both days the cooked breakfast buffets were almost cold. The buffet dinner on saturday night was only average, and again was almost cold. Top class staff, courteous and attentive. 5

  • As part of a discount deal i give it a thumbs up, but if i were paying full rates it would have been a thumbs down. Like others i felt i had been misled about only the one dinner being included in the package. We had the buffet roast which was limited in selection and the roast potatoes were soft from being under a lid instead of under heated lights to keep them crunchy. Loved the little pancake maker :-) service and staff assistance was fantastic. Room ok, but out the back with view/sounds of the 'big motor' even though i had requested a view over the pool, get what you pay for i guess? the grounds were immaculate, as was the large pool, though it lacked atmosphere (nice chairs/plantings would enhance). The small pool near the office was yuk ... At least 20 flies+other insects+scummy-stuff on the surface and algae build up on the bottom/sides ... Obviously uncleaned for a few days or more. Would consider staying on a similar deal again but i wouldn't stay at full rates. 5

  • We stayed for 2 nights. Thought all the staff were great - the meals were lovely. The grounds were very well maintained. It was a thoroughly relaxing stay with lots to do or not - you decide. 5
