    Fabulous

    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.

    Very good

    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).

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

    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.
