    Ideal location, close to the supermarkets and only a short walk to the lake. The room was very spacious. However the best thing had to be the warm kiwi welcome. Special thanks must go to Finlay behind reception for encouraging me to get out and about in Taupo and for his help with organising activities which were 'sweet as'. Fantastic start to my trip in New Zealand
