    "Lovely place to stay"

    I booked a one bedroom unit for the Lake Taupo Cycle Challenge - the location (very close to the start, across the road from the lake) and the private spa being the major drawcards. The reviews I read noted that the units are a bit dated (which they are), but also noted the friendly owners and the cleanliness of the rooms. That was exactly my experience, and I've already booked to stay there again next year. The units are fairly basic but have everything you need, and are well maintained. They were so clean I felt the need to be extra clean myself! The bedroom is between the living area and spa pool, so is back from the road and therefore quiet. The spa can be a bit noisy but is turned off by the owners around 9.30 each night, or you can turn it off manually if you need to. It was lovely to have the spa pool to sink into the night after the race. Also a bonus were the picnic tables on a strip of lawn by the road - a great place to watch your friends cycling towards the finishline. And did I mention the friendly owners? Unfortunately I'm told the lodge is changing ownership soon, but I trust the new owners will continue to operate an excellent facility.

    Hi Pip, really appreciate you taking the time to write this review, and thank you very much for your kind comments. We try hard, and the new owners are just as keen to ensure everyone that stays has a positive experience. By the way, great big refurbishment coming, so wont be dated for much longer. Thanks again. Lynda

    "Tidy in Taupo"

    Had a great stay overnight in Taupo at the Gables Motor Lodge. Easy to check in as all paperwork had been pre processed. Motelier was obliging and very helpful allowing us to store bike in their lock up. Room was tidy, clean and well presented and having a private pool in the unit a real treat. Would stay again next time we are in Taupo.

    "Recommend"

    My wife and I stayed one night, this was the second time we had stayed at the Gables. The location of the motel is perfect in what is a perfect location for a town. The accommodation was clean, well appointed and met our needs. The individual heated plunge pool was great for relaxing after a days walking and sightseeing. The hosts were very friendly and welcoming. The only negative was that the bed was a "bit tired', which didn't aid a good nights sleep.

    "Highly recommended motel to stay in Lake Taupo"

    We could not fault the motel! It overlooks Lake Taupo. The rooms were very clean and modern and well equipped. Our accommodation had a main room with a kitchen and a separate bedroom. The bonus was that many of the rooms had their own hot tub! The shops and harbour were a pleasant 15 minute walk away.The owners were very pleasant and extremely helpful. The motel itself was very efficiently run. There was plenty of parking, well-presented units and we would highly recommend it as a superb place to stay!
