    "Fantastic location in Taupo"

    Fantastic location in Taupo, with the lake on the other side of the road and an easy walk to the shops, mini putt, etc.

    They had a unit for our family of 5 which was great, other motels were not an option for us as they didn't have a unit that could take 5.

    The only disappointment was the view from our unit - to the left was the back of the restaurant and to the right the reception building, with a little of the lake in between.

    That aside we really enjoyed our stay in Taupo.

    Thanks again Twin Peaks.

    "Great value and service."

    We had a good stay. No plug in the basin in the bathroom and the voucher for free Intenrnet wasn't given to us. Was told there would be a double and I angel bed in the bedroom. Otherwise all good. Clean and comfortable and I was texted about the charger I left behind. Would definitely stay again.

    "Queen spa studio (upstairs)"

    Clean unit with a good view of the lake (from our upstairs room). Friendly staff. We could not connect to free WiFi. Getting into the shower (in the spa bath) could be a problem for an elderly person as there was no hand rail to hold on to.

    "Twin Peaks Motel"

    Our room was spacious, the beds were very comfortable and having three bedrooms suited our group perfectly.

    The living area was fine with great views of the lake.

    The lighting over the sink area was poor.

    Thanks for a great stay, enjoyed the spa pool and parking was easy.

    "Needs a revamp"

    We were disappointed with our stay at Twin Peaks. The upkeep of the room had not been maintained. The shower didn't drain probably and part of the shower wall had come away. For heating we had an old 3 bar heater and a fan heater that didn't work. It was a very cold evening!

    I work in the travel industry and spend time at various hotels. I would not stay here again.

    "Lake view paradise"

    We had two lovely nights at this motel with gorgeous views of Lake Taupo. Well worth carrying our luggage upstairs. Only issue was sofa beds in lounge were both a bit broken and uncomfortable for our teenage sons.

    Otherwise would happily stay there again. Taupo fantastic as always.

    "Great customer service"

    Booked over the phone for 1 night for a family of 5 - we were able to pick a room (837) and were offered a better price than that advertised! 1st thumb up!

    Upon arrival, we were treated with excellent customer service by Louisa, manager. I also noted that other staff were also happy & friendly - which is always a good sign.

    The room was a new suite and was really lovely & clean.

    On our departure, Louisa was once again at reception and was very much obliging to assist in anyway...even a few extra sweets & newspapers for the journey home!!

    Definitely 2 thumbs up! Happy, friendly & efficient staff/ clean, modern & tidy facilities - makes for a very happy customer!! We'll be staying again!!

    "Value for money for 1 couple and 1 other adult"

    Be wary of booking system-Got a call to change the room we picked on-line, as it was double booked. Offered a better room for the same price, on arrival we were able to check in early, but the better room was taken so offered another!

    Stayed 1 night so not a major.

    Floor level Room- size adequate and clean, only down side for me was the walls are quite thin! ( Noise from foot traffic up the stairs, along balcony, and toilet/showers) Maybe should have had tv on.

    Very friendly, helpful staff. would stay for 1 night again, particularly as about 10 paces to decent pub/bar and food!

    "A good night in Taupo"

    We stayed at the Twin Peaks Lakeside Inn for one night in March on our way home from a trip to the South Island. We have stayed at this place several times before, as the studios are not too expensive and we love going to the great little British pub next door for dinner & drinks. Such a good family-type menu there. Our studio room at the Twin Peaks Lakeside Inn was pretty small, but we had everything we needed there, and after all that travelling, we certainly appreciated the good night's sleep we had in the comfy bed! We will certainly be staying at Twin Peaks again next time we are in Taupo.

    "Would not stay there again"

    Light in the bathroom was not working so was put in another room where the bathroom floor was filthy and the towel rail had been ripped off the wall and there was nowhere to put your towel and clothing but on the dirty floor. I requested the bathroom to be cleaned this was not done nor was the room serviced.

    "Pleasant apartment"

    3 bedroom apartment was great for family to share. Good quality & spa bath enjoyed. No playground for children though. Parking congested when full. Some crockery etc missing when checked in but staff supplied what was required. Air con in summer would be invaluable as the apartment became quite stuffy. Great place if you intend being out most days but on-site facilities limited fro families.

    "Needs Improvement"

    Location excellent, beachfront location is probably the best you can get.

    No heatpump in the room that we stayed in.

    The Room didnt feel as clean and fresh as it could be.

    The linen probably could do with replacement.

    Customer service met minimum but nothing over and above.

    "Twin Peaks"

    We stayed in a studio with views across the lake to the mountains. Very pleasant room. Excellent shower. Easy walk to the town but far enough away to not be disturbed by chuck out time at the pubs etc.

    It would be nice to have a latch on the lake side door so that it could be hooked open. It doesn't stay open on its own. The additional air circulation would be welcome. Room was a little dark. A bottle of moisturiser with the soap etc would be a welcome addition. Otherwise would certainly recommend to other travellers. Reception very welcoming and helpful.

    "Great view, location, comfortable"

    I stayed with my girlfriend for a long weekend in November to celebrate my 40th birthday. The room was a studio with a spa in the bathroom. It was a great room and the view over the lake to the mountains was stunning. The service was reasonable and the room clean although not spotless. We had an enjoyable stay and the only downer was that we couldn't get the spa bubbles to come on. We told the manager when we departed and they seemed interested to check it.

    Overall a very good place and reasonable value for money.

    "Average stay"

    Service was Good. The Motel manager was polite and effecient. The rooms were a letdown. I had requested for a family room with 4 beds. what i got was a room with a queen and 2 sofa beds that were very uncomfortable. the kitchen had in adequate crockery/ cuttlery, did not even have a tea towel or a scotch brite for washing.

    On the otherside the view was spectacular with the snow clad peaks of Mt Rupehu visible from the windows.

    Twin Peaks was well located and the staff in the evening were very friendly. The fridge was so efficient it froze our milk, so no cups of tea in the morning! A slight negative was the duvet wasnt clean and we had to swap it. Would probably stay again if were passing through.

    Great location BUT not the nicest place we have stayed in. Room was unwelcoming and furniture looked like it came from an office. Room was also cold and towels were small and didn't dry very well. No hairdryeer in room either.

    I was informed that the rooms were owned individually.

    Don't think I'll stay at Twin Peaks Lakeside Inn again.
