Great views and roomy accommodation ”

We booked this last minute during peak season and decided to treat ourselves with an upgrade. Reception welcome was great with internationally experienced staff and although it was full vacancy, the atmosphere was vibrant and energetic. I appreciated the images of the historical details and the local aspects with interesting photos dotted throughout the function areas. The gardens were a nice surprise and we walked around enjoying the landscape. We found our experience to be effortless and after a hectic wedding and long drive from Auckland, we were really to hit the road the next morning well rested for the next part of our trip.

Pool and spa were the highlight”

The outdoor thermal heated spa and pool were the best part. Filtered thermal heated water doesn't have the smell like Rotorua. Open useful hours 6:00am to 10:00pm makes it accessible. Spa was 40*c and 34*c for the pool. Room was weirdly behind for doors to get into it but was nice and warm with a heated towel rail. Shared balcony was weird.

Helpful and friendly staff, clean hotel room and good security and facilities

We stayed for three nights at Hilton Lake Taupo and was impressed by the staff who were friendly and helped us plan our activities in the Lake Taupo region. Blanc, the front office manager, even suggested the order of activities and arranged for shuttle pick-up for us. The staff also gave us good dining suggestions and were very attentive to our needs. Hotel room was very clean and spacious, and together with the pool facilities, made the stay a comfortable and enjoyable one.

Clean room, good facilities and helpful staff

The clean room and comfortable bed allowed for a comfortable stay at Hilton Lake Taupo, allowing my traveling party and I to have a good night's rest after each day of activities. The friendly staff also helped us to arrange for our activities and provided us with valuable research on those activities. Overall, I would recommend this hotel to travelers as it is definitely worth the price I paid.

Love this hotel! ”

Gorgeous Place

We really love the Hilton in Taupo - it's a really pretty, modern hotel, the rooms are spacious and incredibly comfortable. The bathrooms are always really nice too - was just a pity ours didn't have a bath this time, but it did have quite a nice outdoor space with a view of the lake which did make up for it. The toiletries smelt incredible! We had room service this time and the food was outstanding - Fish on prawn risotto was divine! Definitely the perfect place for the getaway - can't help but relax in Taupo.
