the stay was better than average

Very Good8.0
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.

Located a short stroll from the lake which was great. The motel was very clean and facilities were good. The pool was well looked after.

Awesome Accomodation and Location
We had the most Comfortable Stay at Cascades Motel Taupo. The Owners and staff were so kind and obliging. We couldn't fault our Economy Family Unit it had everything we required and the mezzanine floor was more than enough to separate us from our two 16 year old teenagers.!! The location, PERFECT.!! Lakefront, doesn't get any better.! Already recommending to friends and Family and we are definitely using it as our permanent, " Go to" holiday Accomodation.

A great stay in Taupo.
A great sized unit for 3 people, 2 Queen beds and a single. Nice outdoor area with a nice garden, table, chairs and an umbrella. So close to the lake front. Reasonably priced.
