    It was a lovely family run friendly hotel and the spa bath with the view was fab

    Nothing really to dislike. Just a short walk into town which might put people off but not us. It was lively.

    Efficient but cool reception. Given it was so empty, it was a pity we couldn't have been upgraded to a room with a better view.

    Initial reaction on booking in was friendliness of Mein Host - Good relaxed hosts - very handy location to Taupo Race track & tourist spots. Great comfy bed... cheers

    could be a problem for some clients to park their car..esp on the slope...my confusion over payment (or not) online - wasn't sure which credit card paid for what. (don't book online very often so did scratch head...but people at Reef sorted quick & no problem).

    Excellent position

    There were no curtains at the window and with the light on it was possible to see inside in spite of the shutters!

  • Older travelers
    10.0

    Superb facilities overlooking Lake Taupo, which itself is a good central location for Rotorua and the thermal area. Bryan and Keren are excellent hosts and have lots of good advice on how to spend your time/places to eat. Could have used a day or two longer.

    All good.
