Lovely hosts with a personal touch genuinely interested in you making the most of your stay.
The location is very good and very helpful staff !!
The bikes to cycle by the lake were a great bonus. Washing facilities very good.
nice stuff nd nice view!!!
Friendly and hospitable staff, coupled with a clean, comfortable, modern studio suite with spa bath. Brilliant.
Only stayed here as a stop over but great hotel and facilities right on edge of water. Was a bit out of main area for restaurants but kitchen facilities were so good it's worth cooking yourself!
Banged head on overhead locker doors. Inferior toilet paper (and no toilet brush). No radio channels available.
facility and location
Love this Motel. I always stay at The Reef Resort when I'm in Taupo working. This trip I had my young son, he loved the pool.
Fantastic location and views across the lake Very good cupboard space
A little noisy at times - doors that couldn't shut quietly the main culprit
modern n renovated
room is small
Great staff. Great location. Made great use of the free bikes to ride into town. Loved it. Will definitely recommend.
Amazing room, excellent facilities and view of the lake and Volcanos. Staff friendly and helpful.
Noisy at times but didn't spoil our stay
Spa Bath was fantastic. The view was great. Access to the lake was perfect.
The parking was a little tight. Suitable for smaller vehicles only.
Home like with excellent staff
All of this place looked great and a cut above the rest, but we ended up with the penthouse suite, the master suite was world class but all three rooms large and ensuite, with some great design. The living space was expansive, and kitchen and facilities were excellent. The outside pool and spa perfect, much like the hosts - my two kids haven't stopped talking about the place.
Having to leave.
I booked a Luxury Studio with Lake View and that is what my family and I got January 2015. The room was beautifully appointed and the outlook wonderful - the lake and volcano beyond (Mt Ruapehu snow capped and Mt Ngauruhoe / "Mt Doom"). The sunset was sensational - I took photos from the balcony and from the Lake's edge in front of the resort. A take away dinner on the balcony was the best restaurant in town. The Hosts, Erin and her husband were wonderful and extremely helpful. I absolutely want to return to Lake Taupo and stay here again! More than one night next time. The heated pool and the thermal pool were great. Enjoying the sun and pool was so relaxing. My wife, my teenage daughters and I all rated this accommodation highly and as one of the best we stayed in during our three weeks travelling the North and South Islands. Free parking, free WiFi, good kitchen and kitchen equipment and a spa.
As the four of us had a single room apartment it became a little cramped when the couch bed was folded out. However, I was well aware of this on booking and did not mind at all as I wanted the superb location, view and facilities offered by the Reef Resort. I will return off peak, book here again and reserve a larger apartment.
Brilliantly situated 40 minute leisurely walk to the town centre. Extremely friendly and helpful host. Facilities first class. Will definitely return.
Loved the bath and the Bed just loved everything
The location and facilities. There were good restuarants nearby.
This place was awesome. Probably the best one of the 12 or so we stayed at in NZ. Very spacious. Awesome view of the lake. Very clean. Friendly hosts.
The place was awesome, so there wasn't much to not like, although the WiFi was a little subpar.
great location, really friendly staff
Joulles was awesome and really accommodating when we wanted to change our booking. The guys from the reef went out of there way to meet our needs and we couldn't have been happier with the result. it was above and beyond what we expected and we would recommend this resort to anyone travelling through Taupo - we will certainly be back!
Great place to stay would recommend to anyone .... And have done so.
Fantastic location, great staff (the lovely Erin), rooms were very well done and good prices, pool was fabulous for children. Right next to a hot water beach. Next time we will book Rm 3 as that is the best one for travellers with children who want to swim and parents who like a wine on the terrace (Rm 3 makes us all happy). Highly recommended, it is the new family destination in Taupo!
No butter or jam pots in room. Only gripe!
