Cascades Lakefront Motel, Taupo
We stayed in 10 hotels during our trip to NZ and this was probably our favorite one. The managers/owners were absolutely friendly and helpful.

It was a great location and a beautiful space but I didn’t realize they didn’t have air conditioning. We made due and were comfortable with the fans they provide. Unfortunately there was someone who left their dog unattended all night and he barked and whimpered the whole night until she greeted him at 5 am when she came home. Everything else was great.

Great for an overnight
Enjoyed having a kitchenette to use. Rooms were nice but a little dated. Bed was comfortable. Thought the room would have a lake view but it seems only a few might have this. Stayed just one night and it was fine for that. Might have considered other hotels that had better views of the lake. Front desk associate was very helpful in suggesting places to go and things to do.

Very Tired and in need of a Clean.
Dissapointed in this motel. The whole place needed a really good clean including the carpets. There were spiders and cobwebs everywhere, chipped enamel in both bathroom basins and one was nearly completely blocked. The stairway to the upstairs bedroom was extremely steep with narrow treads and NO handrail making it vary dangerous.
